It is not forcing people. Philip explains that

1) if in the street, there is only one big bin, it is unlikely you  
will sort your garbage.
2) that if you give a few bins for appropriate product, some people  
will start to sort their garbage for recycling.
[2.a Usually  when you give a manual explaining what to sort out and  
how, you improve the ratio of people sorting garbages.]
3) when the city becomes stricter, it puts in place a system where it  
becomes mandatory to sort your garbage for recycling with penalties.
   3.a usually first the big companies
   3.b then sometimes individual houses.
