[Adopted 9-16-2014 by Ord. No. 584]
It is the purpose of this article to protect the public health, safety, and general welfare of the residents of the City of Isanti by instituting requirements for the collection of solid waste and recycling materials. These requirements shall be in conformance with the Isanti County Solid Waste Plan and Isanti County Solid Waste Ordinance regulating the activities and licensing of solid waste and recycling collectors.
Collectors of residential solid waste and recycling, licensed by Isanti County, shall be required to register with the City Clerk or his/her designee. This registration shall occur with existing licensed collectors within 30 days after the effective date of this article or, for proposed new collectors, upon notification to the City of Isanti of an application for a license from Isanti County. There shall be no charge for registration.
Registration shall require information on the location of the residential solid waste and recycling collector's facilities, contact person and phone number, area of operation and routes in the City, and schedule of collection. The Collector shall inform the City of any change in information.
Operations of residential solid waste and recycling collectors in the City shall be deemed to be ongoing under their license with Isanti County, unless they inform the City that they are no longer operating in the corporate limits. In the event the collector ends operations in the City, the City shall receive 90 days' written notice of termination of services.
Any person violating any provision of this article is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be subject to the penalties set forth in Minn. Stat. § 609.02, Subdivision 3.
