Sec. 23C-4-3. Exceptions to exclusive right of collection and transportation.

(a) Any person may apply to the city manager for a permit to transport his own garbage, wet garbage, rubbish, refuse, or yard refuse from his premises subject to conditions reasonably related to protection of public health and welfare. Such permit, however, shall not be approved without a showing of compelling circumstances. Persons operating industrial or commercial uses may transport the same without obtaining such permit.
(b) Yard Refuse. When the city contracts with separate contract agents to handle garbage and yard refuse, the contract agent handling garbage may collect and transport yard refuse placed within garbage receptacles, but the contract agent handling yard refuse shall have the exclusive right to collect and transport yard refuse placed in public rights of way as provided hereinafter.
(c) Emergency Removal of Unsanitary Materials. Nothing in this chapter shall be deemed to prohibit the removal and hauling by a private person of materials considered by the city sanitation officer or the city police chief or the city fire chief to constitute a health menace of such nature as necessary to be ordered by any one of those officers or their designated representatives to be promptly removed. (Ord. No. 1038, § 3 (part); Ord. No. 1114, (part).)
