c. [Incinerator, residue, ashes, refuse] Refuse and liquid waste shall be stored in the building or dwelling or at the rear of the building or dwelling as may be required by the department of health and mental hygiene or the department of housing preservation and development until time for removal and kept in tightly covered metal receptacles or containers made of other materials of a type and grade acceptable to the department of sanitation, department of health and mental hygiene, and the department of housing preservation and development.  Between the months of September and December, any person receiving Saturday leaf collection provided or approved by the department shall be permitted to place such leaves out for collection beginning at 3 p.m. on the Friday immediately preceding the Saturday on which such collection is scheduled to take place.  After the contents have been removed by the department [of sanitation] or other collection agency any receptacles remaining shall be removed from the front of the building or dwelling before 9:00 p.m. on the day of collection, or if such collection occurs after 4:00 p.m., then before 9:00 a.m. on the day following collection. The receptacles shall at all times be kept covered or closed and kept in a manner satisfactory to the department [of sanitation], the department of health, and in the case of residential premises, the department of housing preservation and development. No receptacles, refuse, incinerator residue or ashes, or liquid waste shall be kept so as to create a nuisance. Yard sweepings, hedge cuttings, grass, leaves, earth, stone or bricks shall not be mixed with household wastes.
