Wow, my trash company doesn't even provide cans - for $30 a month plus tax, I carry my one bag out every Sunday night and they pick it up on Monday morning.

My boss gave me the number of the company she uses - they are only $22 a month - that would save me $96 a year. I need to call them.

That's pretty much how things are done here. If it's not in the big can that's provided, it doesn't get picked up.

Can't speak to recycling, since we don't rent the bin for that ... (we use the city recycling bins and the paper recycling bin at the library (which doesn't take shredded paper.)

We take our own to the trash center. They take almost everything. Taxes pay for it so no cost to us.

In case you hadn''t thought about it...

After rolling your trash can back from the curb, don't touch anything until you've washed your hands. The garbage man has probably touched 100s of germy handles.
