(1) Garbage and refuse must be kept in durable, easily cleanable, insect proof and rodent proof containers that do not leak and do not absorb liquids. Plastic bags and wet strength paper bags may be used to line these containers and they may be used for storage inside the establishment. The containers must be kept clean and in good repair and be of sufficient number to hold the solid waste that accumulates.

(2) Outside storage of unprotected plastic bags or wet strength paper bags or baled units containing garbage or refuse is prohibited. Cardboard or other packaging material not containing garbage or food wastes need not be stored in covered containers.

(3) Garbage and refuse must be disposed of often enough to prevent the development of odor and the attraction of insects and rodents.

(4) Effective measures intended to minimize the presence of rodents, flies, cockroaches and other insects on the premises must be utilized.
