    This is a silly thing, but we used to have it picked up twice a week here and just recently, it was changed to once a week. That is tough with 4 dogs. I can't imagine the summer.:umm:

    We get 2x a week for trash, 1x for yard trash and 1x for recycling.

    Did you get any notice why it dropped to 1x a week? City budget cuts or something?

    2x a week and once for recycling.
    Then for yard waste based on the calendar.
    We didn't have recycling pickup last week because of Veteran's Day so today was a bit overwhelming.

    I used to get picked up 2x a week then we moved and it's only once. But I can throw away a ton of stuff. Previously they would only take 2 cans.

    Oh, yeah - we got a few weeks notice. I doubt there were budget cuts. Hardly the end of the world, but twice a week was nice.

    1x a week for trash and twice a month for recycling. But we live in the country and pay a private carter. About $30/month.

    1x weekly.

    And my shit town doesn't have any municipal garbage service so we have to pay privately. Makes it way more expensive.

    "The Boys" still run that business so it will never change.

    Once a week for trash. Every other week for recycling and yard waste. We have a big can for trash and a smaller one for recycling. Nothing can be added outside the can. Only what fits inside.

    I've never heard of 2x per week pickup. Wow.

    We don't have trash pickup where I live.
    You guys are a bunch of spoiled pansies.
    Bury the garbage in your neighbors yard like I do.

    You need extra pickup because of the dogs? I have 5 pups and it's a non-issue even in the summer. Garbage can is in the attached garage.

    Up until about a year ago it was twice a week. Now it's once a week which sucks. It gets ripe in the summer.
    Recycling and yard waste has always been once a week.
    They said that the cut back was due to people not putting out much trash on non recycling pick up days.

    Once a week. Two trash containers (with wheels) - one for regular bagged garbage, the other for recycle stuff.
    Comes by early Friday mornings.
    Sometimes.

    It used to be 5 days a week at 6 a.m., then it went to a pay service and dropped to 4 and then 3 days a week, and the guy wouldn't get there until 7 a.m. Now he seems to be on vacation about two thirds of the year, and the days he does finally amble in, he seems tired and rushes through it to get it over with. I'm thinking of not renewing.
