You can comply by:
- Separating your recyclable materials from your trash and taking them to a recycling center or subscribing to a service for the collection of recyclables by a permitted hauler
- Subscribing for services with a permitted hauler who collects all your waste in one bin and separates the recyclables from the trash at a different site
