   C.   Semi-annually, each licensed hauler shall submit a written report, on forms provided by the Department, on its municipal waste hauling and recycling service operations. Reports shall be submitted to the Department by July 31 for January 1 through June 30, and by January 31 for July 1 through December 31.

   E.   It shall be unlawful for any licensed hauler to collect discarded materials from any residential dwelling unit in McHenry County containing visible signs of mandated recyclable materials. It is also unlawful for licensed haulers to remove, for disposal, those bags or containers of discarded materials which visibly display a warning notice, sticker or some other device indicating that the load of discarded materials contains mandated recyclable materials and therefore should not be removed for disposal.
