37.110.421    WASTE DISPOSAL

(1) All wastes shall be properly disposed of, and pending disposition, shall be kept in suitable containers so as to prevent creating a nuisance.

(2) This rule shall be deemed to have been satisfied when the following requirements are met:

(a) All trash and other waste material shall be removed from the machine location as frequently as may be necessary to prevent nuisance and unsightliness and shall be disposed of in a manner approved by the health officer or sanitarian.

(b) Self-closing, leak-proof, readily cleanable, plainly labeled and designated waste container or containers shall be provided in the vicinity of each machine or machines to receive used cups, cartons, wrappers, straws, closures and other single-service items. Such waste containers shall not be located within the vending machine, provided that an exception may be made for those machines dispensing only packaged products with crown closures, in which case the closure receptacle may be located within the machine. Suitable racks or cases shall be provided for multi-use containers or bottles.

(c) Containers shall be provided within all machines dispensing liquid products in bulk for the collection of drip, spillage, overflow or other liquid wastes.

(d) An automatic shut-off device shall be provided which will place the vending machine out of operation before such container overflows. Containers or surfaces on which such wastes may accumulate shall be readily removable for cleaning, shall be easily cleanable, and shall be corrosion resistant. If liquid wastes from drip, spillage or overflow which originate within the machine are discharged into a sewerage system, the connection to the sewer shall be through an approved air gap.
