A code regulating the manner in which refuse may be stored, collected and disposed of; declaring and defining certain conditions as nuisances; fixing the responsibilities and duties of persons storing, collecting and/or disposing of refuse and providing for issuance of permits to collect refuse is hereby established pursuant to the provisions of c. 188, P.L. 1950.

Any person who violates any provision of or order promulgated under this chapter or the code established herein shall, upon conviction thereof, be liable to a penalty of not less than two dollars ($2) nor more than five hundred dollars ($500) for each violation.
