Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:
Section 1. No person shall bring into the State from any place without the State, garbage or household refuse for the purpose of feeding it to hogs, or for any other purpose, unless there has first been obtained from the State Board of Health a permit naming the area within which such garbage or household refuse shall be disposed of, and unless there shall have been deposited with the State Board of Health a bond for the sum of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) which shall be forfeitable if the disposal of such garbage is not provided for in such a manner as shall meet the requirements of the State Board of Health.
Section 2. The State Board of Health may at any time determine the limits of areas within which garbage under no circumstances shall be disposed of or deposited, and shall at any time revoke any permit given if the disposal of any garbage is conducted in such a way as to constitute a nuisance or a menace to the public health.
Section 3. The bringing in of garbage from any place without the State, the depositing of garbage in any area not named by the State Board of Health as an area suitable for the disposal of such garbage, and the disposal of any garbage in an unsanitary manner shall be deemed a nuisance under 746, Section 11 of the Health Laws of the State, and subject to the penalties therein provided.
