Can I store a refrigerator or other household appliances outside?

When refrigerators, freezers, stoves, and similar household appliances are left outside, they present a temptation for children to play in them. The danger of suffocation can be minimized by storing these items within a secure structure and locking the appliance door in a shut position with a chain and lock, removing the door of the appliance, or facing the appliance to the wall so the door cannot be opened. Contact Code Enforcement at (949) 461-3502 immediately if a refrigerator or similar household appliance is observed in front of a residence.
