The 2012 edition of NFPA 30 has the following paragraph in chapter 14, Hazardous Material Storage Lockers:



14.6.5 - "Miscellaneous combustible materials, including but not limited to idle pallets, excessive vegitation, and packing materials, shall not be permitted within 5 ft (1.5m) of the designated site approved for lockers."



Hope this helps,

The exact NFPA requirement is as follows:



NFPA 30 Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code

14.6.5 Miscellaneous combustible materials, including but not limited to idle pallets, excessive vegetation, and packing materials, shall not be permitted within 5 ft. (1.5 m) of the designated site approved for lockers.
