Solid waste — See Ch. 273.
Municipal authority to provide for the disposal of offensive substances — See C.G.S. § 7-148(c)(8)(B).
It is hereby found that there exists the need to regulate the usage of the Town of Manchester sanitary landfill in order that existing landfill space can be utilized to its maximum capacity and efficiency.
To assist in reducing the volume of municipal solid waste, it is found that the recycling of designated defined materials by residents and business/commercial/industrial users is both necessary and appropriate.
It is hereby declared that the purpose of this chapter is to protect and preserve space within the Town of Manchester sanitary landfill, to promote the use of recycling by residents and business/commercial/industrial users, to minimize and, if possible, eliminate environmental hazards at the sanitary landfill and to regulate the Town of Manchester sanitary landfill for the purpose of maintaining adequate space for the disposal of municipal solid waste generated in or originating within or otherwise entering into the limits of the Town.
The provisions of this chapter shall apply to all residential and business/commercial/industrial users of the Manchester landfill, including residents receiving curbside pickup from the Town of Manchester, and for business/commercial/industrial establishments receiving private collection.
The Director of Public Works shall make necessary and proper regulations to accomplish purposes set forth herein, which regulations shall not become effective until after adoption by the Board of Directors.
Users have 10 days after mailing a violation letter, by certified mail, to appeal the penalty. Appeals may be made in writing to the General Manager. The appeal shall be decided within 30 days of its receipt in the General Manager's office by the General Manager or his designee. Notice of a decision upon the appeal shall be mailed by certified mail by the General Manager or his designee to the appellant.
Penalties shall become effective 12 days after the mailing of the violation letter by certified mail. The taking of any appeal pursuant to Subsection A of this section shall not suspend the obligation of a violator to pay any charges and fees as herein provided nor shall it cancel, annul or revoke the suspension of any landfill permit.
