By the adoption of this chapter, the Town Board of the Town of LeRoy declares its intent to be to regulate in a manner consistent with the interest of the citizens of the Town of LeRoy the dumping of garbage, rubbish, refuse and similar waste material on lands within the Town and to provide for the disposal thereof on established publicly owned refuse disposal areas. Garbage is a deleterious substance, and garbage dumps emit obnoxious odors and fumes. Unattended private garbage dumps and disposal areas attract rodents and vermin and become breeding places for them. The process of burning garbage causes smoke and oxidized garbage to be given off into the air which the community breathes. All of these conditions can adversely affect the development of the Town unless they are properly and carefully regulated. Therefore, recognizing the above and the need of the community for an adequate and well-regulated procedure for the disposal of garbage and rubbish and in the exercise of its police power in these regards, the Town Board of the Town of LeRoy does hereby enact the following chapter.
