This idiom is also correct.

A) Wisconsin, Illinois, Florida, and Minnesota have begun to enforce statewide bans prohibiting landfills to accept leaves, brush, and grass clippings.

C) Wisconsin, Illinois, Florida, and Minnesota have begun to enforce statewide bans prohibiting landfills from accepting leaves, brush, and grass clippings

IMO C is better because we have have begun to enforce in the introductory part which shows some progressive action. For this reason, I marked C.

prohibit from - CORRECT
prohibiting + noun - CORRECT

Further ban + noun clause is wrong
