Does anybody know where in NFPA 13, 2016 Edition, talks about Trash Enclosures.
I'm working on this project where the trash enclosure is 46'-9" away from the building.
NFPA 13 does not have any section specific for trash enclosures. There might be some info in NFPA 1.
The building code (IBC/NFPA 5000) have the capability of considering buildings (structures) on the same lot as one building thus avoiding the fire separate distance criteria between structures. Usually the fire separation distance criteria kicks in when structures on the same lot are closer than 60 ft apart. In this case, if the allowable area and/or occupancy of one building requires a building to be protected by an automatic sprinkler system in accordance with NFPA 13, the other building must be protected by an NFPA 13 system.
