What if I refuse to separate my food waste?

The state has made these requirements mandatory and the City has been mandated to enforce them. If Republic Services’ drivers notice contamination in your recycle cart or bin, they may not be able to service it as recycling and may tag it to have it serviced as trash (in which case you may be charged). Noncompliance may result in enforcement actions taken by the City.
