As used in this chapter:
- RECYCLING AREA
- Shall mean space allocated for collection and storage of source separated recyclable materials.
- REFUSE AREA
- Shall mean space allocated for collection and storage of all putrescible and nonputrescible solid wastes (except body waste) including garbage, rubbish, ashes, street cleanings, dead animals, abandoned automobiles, and solid market and industrial wastes, excepting, however, any nonputrescible solid wastes which constitute source separated recyclable materials.
There shall be included in any application for development that requires subdivision or site plan approval an indoor or outdoor recycling area and an indoor or outdoor refuse area. The dimensions of the recycling and refuse areas shall be sufficient to accommodate recycling bins or containers and refuse bins or containers which are of adequate size and number, and which are consistent with anticipated usage and with current methods of collection in the area in which the project is located. The dimensions of the recycling and refuse areas and the bins or containers shall be determined in consultation with the director of public works of the City of Wildwood or his designee, and shall be consistent with the district recycling plan adopted pursuant to section 3 of P.L. 1987, c. 102 (N.J.S.A. 13:1E-99.13), any applicable requirements of the municipal master plan adopted pursuant to section 26 of P.L. 1987, c. 102, and the trash and recycling ordinances of the City of Wildwood.
The recycling area shall be conveniently located for the disposition of source separated recyclable materials, preferably near, but clearly separated from, the refuse area.
The recycling and refuse areas shall be well lit, and shall be safely and easily accessible by recycling and refuse personnel and vehicles. Collection vehicles shall be able to access the recycling and refuse areas without interference from parked cars or other obstacles. Reasonable measures shall be taken to protect the recycling and refuse areas and the bins or containers placed therein, against theft of recyclable materials, theft of bins or containers, and from contamination.
The recycling area or the bins or containers placed therein shall be designed so as to provide protection against adverse environmental conditions which might render the collected materials unmarketable. Any bins or containers which are used for the collection of recyclable paper or cardboard, and which are located in an outdoor recycling area, shall be equipped with a lid, or otherwise covered, so as to keep the paper or cardboard dry.
Signs clearly identifying the recycling area and the materials accepted therein shall be posted adjacent to all points of access to the recycling area. Individual bins or containers shall be equipped with signs indicating the materials to be placed therein.
Landscaping and/or fencing shall be provided around any outdoor recycling area and shall be developed in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
Provisions shall be made for cleaning the recycling and refuse areas in such a manner so as to prevent runoff of liquids into the storm sewers or public right of way.
