I was just wondering what kind of trash collection you have at your house. Does your city provide it, or do you have to pay a private company? Also, do any of you have those automated carts for trash?
Our city provides trash pickup and has just switched to an automated system. We get the bins the end of this week. I can see the benefits of the new system, but yet don't like it because it is something new!!
Here the trash gets picked up 2x a week, once on Sat. and again on Wed. We buy our own cans and all trash must be put in cans or it wont be picked up. We can recycle also but for a charge, so I dont and no one else I know does.

we have the choice of private or city trash pick up. for the city,you have to buy trash stickers and put them on every bag you put out. one sticker for a 13 gallon bag,2 stickers for bigger bags. I use private for $40 every 3 months and they aren't as picky as to what they take as the city is.

'bout once a month I make a dump run for us an the ol neighbor lady. Costs 6 dollars plus fuel. We had an outfit comin out to pick it up twice a month but they wanted 25 or 30 bucks to do it. We also recycle everything we can and get paid for it by the same company that does the trash pickup. We pay them to pick it up or they pay us to bring it in. Go figure.

The town provides a big barrel and weekly pickup for trash, and recycling every other week. They contract it to a private hauler. They'll haul whatever's in the barrel for free, but charge $1.00/bag for anything outside the barrel.
I dont pay anyone to haul my trash, its too pricey, instead, since the dump is only a few miles away. and I have a truck, it gets put in the pickup, and hauled by me to the dump. cheaper, and alot easier. trash pickup for me, is every friday or saturday, depending on work load.
we have a compactor in the kitchen,I try and go to the transfer center just once a month, its 60 cents a bag to dump. Recyclables are free, but everything has to be separated. I hate going as the wife and kids think the recycle containers are another trash bin, and never break down a box. Curbside pick-up is expensive and about every three to four months I was replacing a $75 rolling, tilt dump trash can, after it was hit or stolen. The only thing I have a problem with is old brake fluid, have almost 4 gallons of the stuff no one will take. Also have to pay about $20 a year for old tire disposol when people dump them along the road in front of the house.
