Existing and New Dumpsters
Existing and New Dumpsters: they must be screened from view
By December 31, 2011, with the exception of 1- or 2-unit residential uses, all refuse and refuse handling equipment, including but not limited to garbage cans and dumpsters, must be stored within a building or totally screened from eye level view. If placed outside, dumpsters must be screened to a height of at least 6 feet and provide a minimum 80% opaqueness. Dumpsters must be located in the 3rd tier of a property, which is measured from a point 20 feet back from the front building line and extending to the rear lot line.
