(A) During intervals between collection, transportation or disposal, the storage, accumulation, collection, keeping, handling or maintaining of solid waste on premises shall be performed in such a manner so as to discourage the harboring and breeding of rodents and insects and the ready access to the solid waste by dogs and other small animals, and so as not to objectionably and unreasonably pollute the air, or so as not to constitute a fire or health hazard.
(B) Other than at an approved solid waste facility, in any premises where the volume of solid waste accumulates in excess of two cubic yards between intervals of collection or disposal, the solid waste shall be stored in fire-resistant containers approved by the local fire authority and in a manner approved by the county’s Health Officer.
(C) Any industrial, commercial or business establishment wherein solid waste is handled, produced or stored in large quantities shall have the solid waste operation reviewed by the county’s Health Officer. The person in possession of the establishment shall comply with such requirements as the county’s Health Officer may deem necessary for the sanitary storage, collection or disposal of solid waste on the premises in compliance with this chapter. Any special requirements of the Health Officer shall be specified in writing and transmitted to the person in possession of the solid waste operation.
