It is hereby determined that:
(A) There exist on privately owned parcels of land within the township accumulations of junk, rubbish and/or garbage;
(B) Such accumulations of junk, rubbish and/or garbage constitute a hazard to the public health, safety and welfare of the residents of the township for the reasons that they provide a habitat conducive to breeding and nesting of rats, mice and other vermin and also that they contain objects with sharp edges and other hazards, which could injure small children who would be attracted to play thereon without appreciating the danger thereof; and
(C) The regulations contained in this subchapter are the minimum regulations required to eliminate the foregoing undesirable condition and protect the public health, safety and welfare.
