All floor drains shall discharge directly to an approved sanitary sewer system. All ventilation shall discharge so as to minimize human exposure to the effluent. Storage, transport and transfer to, from, and between vehicles shall be under a cover or packaged in a container that protects the waste from the elements and over a floor or bermed pavement that will contain leaks and spills of liquid from the waste. No requirement for cover, floor, or pavement shall be construed if the activity is transient in nature, such as in the case of spill cleanup or weekly collection of waste packages from professional offices for transport.
