Pursuant to General Municipal Law § 120-aa, the New York State Legislature has directed that each municipality in the State of New York adopt local legislation requiring that solid waste which has been left for collection or which is delivered by the generator of such solid waste to a solid waste management facility shall be separated into recyclable, reusable or other components for which economic markets for alternate uses exist.

The Board of Trustees, from time to time, by resolution, may establish regulations specifying those recyclable or reusable materials, including but not limited to glass, metal and plastic containers and newspapers or other components, which materials shall not be commingled for pickup with any other solid waste materials and which shall be separated from other solid waste materials in accordance with such regulations, and designating the place(s) and time(s) when such recyclable or reusable materials may be placed for pickup, collection and recycling.
No person shall cause or permit any recyclable or reusable materials designated in or pursuant to Subsection A hereof to be commingled with any other solid waste materials for pickup, collection and recycling.
No person shall cause or permit any such recyclable or reusable material to be placed for pickup, collection and recycling, except in containers approved by the Board of Trustees for that purpose.
No person shall cause or permit any such recyclable or reusable material to be placed for pickup, collection and recycling and reuse, except at such times and places as may be designated by the Board of Trustees.
