sizes. The mandates began in 1991 and were phased in by type of material
through 1995,  covering used motor oil, lead-acid batteries; appliances;
tires; yard materials; newspapers; corrugated cardboard; magazines; office
paper; and plastic, metal and glass containers.

private waste haulers also provide for the collection and recycling of
