[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Health of the Township of Montville by BOH Ord. No. 1999-1 as Ch. 17.12 of the 1998 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It shall be unlawful for any person, persons, firm or corporation, whether as principal, agent, servant, employee or otherwise, to dump any refuse, ashes, garbage, papers, factory waste, organic or nonorganic matters upon any land, road, street, alley or lane in the Township of Montville, or to use or permit to be used any land, road, alley, street or lane in the Township of Montville as a dumping ground for refuse, ashes, garbage, papers, factory waste, organic or nonorganic matters, or to establish a dump for the disposal of refuse, ashes, garbage, papers, factory waste, organic or nonorganic matters within the Township of Montville, without having first obtained a permit to do so as herein provided.
Application for such permit shall be made in writing to the Board of Health of the Township of Montville, and upon receiving such application the Board of Health shall investigate the same. If in the opinion of the Board the proposed dumping place can be maintained in a sanitary manner, then the Board may, in its discretion, issue a permit therefor, such permit to be limited to the particular property for which it is to be used and to specify the time in which it may be used and the regulations under which such dumping may take place, so that it may be maintained in a sanitary manner and not become a nuisance and a menace to the health of the community. Every permit issued hereunder shall expire on June 30 following its issuance unless renewed on like application.
