Litter — See Ch. 40.
In order to promote, protect and preserve the health, safety and general welfare of the people of the Town of North Haven, hereinafter referred to as the "municipality", it is hereby declared to be in the public interest that the accumulation, preparation, removal, storage, collection, transportation and disposal of solid waste be regulated so as to prohibit the harboring and spreading of rodents and insects, to prevent the spread of disease, to minimize the potential for air, surface and groundwater pollution and to prevent unsightliness resulting in a reduction of the quality of life.

If, in his opinion, it is necessary or desirable to do so for the sake of clarity or to protect the interests of the municipality, the Director may prepare municipal regulations governing the use of the system, with the approval of the First Selectman and the Town Attorney.

Any person using the system shall report refuse collected or generated within the limits of this municipality as being from this municipality to the system operators and shall report any refuse collected or generated outside the limits of this municipality as being from the city or town in which it was collected.
Any person shall deliver to the facility all acceptable solid waste generated within municipal boundaries, except presegregated recyclable materials, to the extent requested by the Director in accordance with a plan developed by CRRA and the company for use in start-up and acceptance testing of the facility by the company. The Director will notify such person at least 15 days prior to start-up and acceptance testing of the expected need for such waste. The Director shall give such person at least one day's prior notice of the specific amount of and the time schedule for the delivery of acceptable solid waste to the facility during this period.
Commencing on the actual acceptance date, all persons shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the system, pursuant to the terms of the municipal contract, all of the acceptable solid waste generated within the boundaries of this municipality except presegregated recyclable materials.
No person shall deliver any waste material to the system which was collected, generated or removed from a location outside the limits of the participating municipalities, nor shall any person deliver unacceptable waste to the system unless such delivery is permitted pursuant to Section 9.16 of the municipal contract.
Nothing in this ordinance is intended to preclude or discourage recycling. The Board of Selectmen may, upon the recommendation of the First Selectman, establish by resolution a mandatory or voluntary recycling program. Such resolution will, at a minimum, specify materials to be segregated from other solid waste, methods of segregation, methods of collection and the delivery point of segregated materials for recycling. Any fees charged at the delivery point may be approved by resolution.

Whenever the Health Director finds that a situation exists involving the collection, storage, transportation or disposal of refuse which endangers the public health, he may, as an emergency measure, correct the same without any notice to the owner or occupier of the premises, and, upon completion of the work, he shall determine the reasonable cost of the work and bill the owner or tenant therefor. Such cost shall constitute a lien on the property on which the corrective measure is taken.
Failure to pay any disposal fee established by this municipality or by CRRA shall be considered a violation of this ordinance after any invoice for payment remains outstanding for more than 30 days. As soon as he becomes aware of it, the Director shall give written notice of this violation to the violator.
Provision of any false information, certifications or documents shall be deemed a violation of this ordinance.

Upon revocation or suspension of a collector's permit, no vehicle or container of the collector may be used for the collection or storage of refuse within this municipality, and no vehicle or container of the collector shall be allowed access to the solid waste disposal area or to the system until such permit has been reinstated or a new permit has been issued.
Any person aggrieved by a decision to suspend or revoke a permit may, within seven days of the date of such notice, appeal such decision by submitting a written request for a hearing. If such suspension or revocation was for reasons other than those specified in Subsection B, C, D or E, the suspension or revocation shall not take effect until after the requested appeal hearing is held.
The Board of Selectmen shall appoint an Appeals Board to hear such appeals as may be requested under this section.
If any permittee notified of a violation shall request an appeal hearing, the Appeals Board shall conduct a hearing within 10 days of the request. The Board shall render a ruling within five days after the final day of the hearing, which ruling may sustain, modify or reverse the decision of the Director. If the ruling of the Board is in favor of the permittee and the reason for the hearing was other than that specified in Subsection C, the permit shall be reinstated in accordance with the ruling. If the reason for the hearing was that specified in Subsection C and if the ruling is favorable to the permittee, the Director shall negotiate with the company or CRRA for reinstatement of the right to use the facility or the residue disposal site, but the permit shall not be reinstated until the person possessing the permit is allowed to use the facility or the residue disposal site.
This ordinance is authorized pursuant to Sections 7-148, 22a-220, 22a-220a and 22a-221 of the General Statutes of the State of Connecticut, as amended.
Should any provision of this ordinance be declared invalid for any reason, such declaration shall not affect the validity of other provisions or of this ordinance as a whole, it being the legislative intent that the provisions of this ordinance shall be severable and that the balance of this ordinance shall remain valid notwithstanding such declaration.
Any prior ordinances adopted by this municipality regarding collection, storage and disposal of refuse, except junk automobiles, or use of the solid waste disposal area are hereby repealed.
