§ 50.03  STORAGE AND DISPOSAL OF REFUSE AND RECYCLABLE MATERIALS.
   (A)   Customers may, on a voluntary basis, separate recyclable materials for the purpose of recycling such items.  If a customer chooses not to separate such items for recycling, such items shall be treated as refuse for all purposes.
   (B)   No person shall cause or permit refuse or recyclable materials to accumulate at any premises for a period in excess of seven days, except non-combustible refuse and recyclable materials which may be accumulated for a period not to exceed 30 days.
   (C)   Every person having charge or control of any premises shall cause refuse located in or on such premises to be placed for collection by the franchisee.  Every person having charge or control of any premises shall cause recyclable materials located in or on such premises to be placed for collection by the franchisee, deposited into any receptacle owned and operated by a State of California designated regional recycling facility, or otherwise disposed of at a location authorized to accept recyclable materials.  Any recyclable materials not so disposed of shall be deemed to be refuse, and the failure of any person having charge or control of the premises in or on which materials are or were located to comply with all provisions of this chapter relating to refuse shall be a violation of this chapter.
   (D)   No person shall bury refuse or dispose of any refuse otherwise than placing such refuse for collection by the franchisee, provided, however, that this subsection shall not prohibit (1) the reduction of garbage to a liquid condition and disposing of the same as sewage, or (2) the deposit of yard waste and garbage in a container designed to compost such materials, provided such container does not exceed one cubic yard in capacity.
