Middletown, DE, Restricts Portable Storage in Residential to 60 Days


A town ordinance adopted in December in Middletown, Del., restricts home-delivered portable storage units in residential areas to 60 days.

Christina Hernandez was recently informed she had 30 days to remove a portable-storage container from her backyard due to the code. The family was using the temporary storage following a devastating house fire.

Town leaders voted to restrict temporary storage units after a few complaints surfaced last fall. Other towns in the area have also regulated portable storage. Regulations and fines vary. Middletown's ordinance doesn't carry a fine, and it is unclear how it will be enforced.
