No. It shall be unlawful for any person to store or keep, or permit others to store or keep junk on their property. This includes, but is not limited to: scrap metals or other scrap materials on any lot or parcel, or any portion thereof, in any zone other than a heavy industrial zone.
All such items should be stored inside a fully enclosed structure. Junk, garbage and rubbish stored outside of a fully enclosed structure is illegal. The only exception is for junkyards in the heavy industrial zones. Code Enforcement does not allow tarps to hide junk, nor can junk be stored in a rear yard behind a fence.
If an item is broken, not normally used out-of-doors, being stored for conversion to another use, being stored for salvage or recycling, dismantled, cast-off, worn-out, etc., it is considered junk and subject to abatement.
