Republic Services Akron Recyclery Transfer Station
We moved to Doylestown and started trash service with Republic in February 2013. From February to October we made three separate payments of 35 dollars and change which, each payment covers three months.Every month we get debt alert letter stating we owe 71.00 dollars or 91.00 dollars. These letters started coming one month into our service. How could a person possibly owe that much if the cost is 35.00 per three months. Half the time they miss picking up your trash all together. Every month we had to call and give the woman payment confirmation numbers to stop the debt collection letters. It is obvious to us that someone in this office is pocketing a little extra money. They had no record of our payments until we gave the pymt confirmation numbers to the debt agency and the debt agency would contact them. Then they would start pickup again for a week or so and quit again.We had all our receipts. The woman on the phone was rude and told us to mail another copy of the receipts and she would look into it again. This happened four or five times.Absolutely the worst service we have ever seen! The person doing the bookkeeping has no clue what they are doing or is dishonest. Horrible service.
Tips & Advices
The cost of trash pickup often depends on the size of the garbage container and whether the service is being handled by the city or a private company. The monthly rate for weekly pickup of a 48- gallon garbage container can run around $20 if this service is handled by a local municipality, while pickup for a 96-gallon cart can cost roughly $22. Rates are often higher when working with a private company.
A compost cart is used for the pickup of compostable items. The list of compostable items includes yard debris, such as branches and plant trimmings; a wide variety of food products, including everything from baked goods to poultry to fruits, grains, and sauces; non-recyclable paper products such as used paper plates and cups; and miscellaneous items, such as cotton balls, hair, and wooden toothpicks.
Trash should always be placed in a trash container when possible. However, if you have more trash than you're able to fit into your trash container, some trash pickup companies will accept the trash if it is bagged and placed next to the full container. Many trash pickup companies will accept up to five extra bags at no charge.
The most common residential trash container size is 96 gallons. A 96-gallon container is large enough to meet the needs of the average family, and it's generally able to handle weekly collection cycles without overflow. This is the largest residential trash container that a garbage truck's automated side loader can accommodate.
Paint cans should not be placed in regular trash bins. Paint and paint thinners can be hazardous to the environment, and these items require special handling when it comes to disposal. If you have paint cans that need to be disposed off, call your trash pickup company to make special arrangement to have them removed.
