BY-LAW NUMBER 2007-46

 

BEING a By-Law to Prohibit the Throwing, Placing or Depositing of Refuse or Debris on Lands within the Township of Rideau Lakes.

 

WHEREAS the Municipal Act, 2001 provides that a local Municipality may prohibit the depositing of refuse or debris on land without the consent of the owner or occupant of the land;

 

AND WHEREAS the Municipal Act, 2001 provides that a Municipality may pass By-Laws for the purposes of prohibiting the deposit of refuse or debris on property within the Municipality;

 

AND WHEREAS it is deemed desirable and expedient to prohibit the throwing, placing or depositing of refuse or debris on property within the Municipality;

 

NOW THEREFORE the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Rideau Lakes enacts as follows:

 

1.                  Definition – In this By-Law, “Refuse” shall mean all matter thrown away as worthless or unwanted and shall include but not be limited to the common definitions of litter, rubbish, trash, garbage and waste.

 

2.                  No person shall throw, place or deposit refuse or debris on any property within the Municipality, other than those areas designated by the Municipality.

 

3.                  Every person who contravenes any provision of this By-Law is guilty of an offence and on conviction of his or her first offence is liable under this By-Law to pay the set fine as provided for in Section I of the Provincial Offences Act.

 

4.                  In addition to any fine payable pursuant to Section 3 above, every person who is convicted of an offence under this By-Law shall be responsible for any and all charges, fees or costs associated with the clean up of any refuse, which resulted from the original offence.  The levying and payment of any fines shall not relieve a person from the necessity of paying any fees, charges or costs from which they are liable under the provision of this By-Law.

 

5.                  The Municipality may recover the costs incurred during the Cleanup resulting from any act of throwing, placing or depositing refuse or debris on lands within the Municipality, from the person responsible for the act, by action or by adding the costs to the tax roll and collecting them in the same manner as taxes.
