(1) Provide containers designed for safe handling that shall be designed and constructed to be non-absorbent, watertight, vector-resistant, durable, easily cleanable, and prevent the leakage of liquids.
(2) Provide containers equipped with close-fitting and tight-fitting lids or covers that can be readily removed.
(3) Provide containers that comply with the color, signage, and labeling requirements specified in a collector's SWMA or NEFA or CRMC's certificate.
A collector or CRMC shall furnish all of its customers with one or more containers for each type of discarded materials for separate collection of each type of discarded material for which each customer has subscribed. The containers shall allow generators to effectively source separate the recyclable materials, organic materials, and construction and demolition debris from solid waste for pick-up by the collector or CRMC, where such materials shall include, at a minimum, designated recyclable materials and designated organic materials as defined in section 68.502.
(b) If a collector's SWMA or NEFA or a CRMC's certificate imposes more stringent container requirements than imposed by this section 68.521, collector or CRMC shall comply with the more stringent requirements imposed by the SWMA, NEFA, or CRMC certificate.
