[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Monroe 6-13-2017 by L.L. No. 6-2017. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Village of Monroe has determined that containers and dumpsters placed or deposited upon Village streets and roadways by contractors, renovating, remodeling or constructing structures adjacent thereto present a danger to members of the public traveling upon the Village streets or highways by motor vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle or on foot. The purpose of this chapter is to regulate such use. The regulations set forth below are intended to ensure the safety of the members of the public using the Village's street and highways.
No dumpster or container shall be placed on any Village street or highway without the owner or lessee of the container having applied for and received a dumpster permit from the Village of Monroe Building Department.
Application. The application for a container or dumpster permit to be placed on a Village street or roadway shall provide the following:
The name, address and telephone number of the owner of the container or dumpster;
The name, address and telephone number of the entity or individual leasing the container or dumpster;
The dimensions of the container or dumpster;
The name of the owner of the premises for which the container or dumpster shall be used for;
A description of the debris to be placed in the container or dumpster;
Duration of the placement; and
The measures to be employed to illuminate the container or dumpster during dusk and evening hours.
Every application for a container or dumpster permit shall be accompanied by proof of the existence of a liability insurance policy in the minimum sum of $1,000,000 naming the Village of Monroe as an additional insured to protect the Village from any claim for damage or injury to person or property resulting from the placement of the container or dumpster in a Village street or highway.
The liability insurance policy required hereunder shall be written by an insurance company authorized to transact business in the State of New York and shall state on the face thereof that it is not cancelable by the insurance carrier except on 30 days' prior notice to the Village Clerk of the Village of Monroe.
Proscription. No food or household garbage shall be deposited into the container or dumpster while on a Village street or highway.
Any person violating the provisions of this chapter may be issued a notice of violation by the Village Building Inspector or police officer, and, if such violation continues beyond the time stated in the notice of violation for its abatement, it shall constitute an offense against the provisions of this chapter.
Any violation of any provision of chapter shall be subject, upon conviction, to a penalty or fine up to and not to exceed $250 per day or not to exceed a term of imprisonment for 15 days, or both, except as otherwise provided herein. Each and every violation and, in the case of a continuing violation, each day's continuance thereof, should be deemed a separate and distinct offense.
