§ 7-28-261

Accumulation of refuse – Responsibility


No person shall deposit refuse in a standard or commercial refuse container, or compactor, in a manner that prevents complete closure of the container’s cover, or deposit refuse on top of a container in a manner that interferes with opening of the container, or pile or stack refuse against a container.


The owner, his agent or occupant of a property shall not allow any person to violate subsection (a) of this section. The presence of refuse preventing complete closure of the container’s cover, deposited on or piled or stacked against a standard refuse container, a commercial refuse container, or compactor shall be prima facie evidence of violation of this subsection (b).


Any person who violates any provision of this section shall be fined not less than $200.00 and not more than $500.00 for each offense. Each day that a violation continues shall constitute a separate and distinct offense.
