Republic Services
Customer since 2002, the company name changed a few times, currently it is Republic Service. The ladies in the office when we called to requst changes in pick-up have always been kind and very helpful. They even have a faster way to make these change than they did before. Our driver has a big smile and a friendly wave. They even come a replace the dumpster for repairs and call to tell us they will be exchanging dumpsters. We are on Mustang Island, after holiday weekend people discard more than a person could believe in unwanted, bought for single use, we'll use it once more at the beach and then pitch it items. I'm sure the put every truck and driver they have to work. It isn't their fault at all, their capacity is exceeded. Thank You for Your Efforts ! The Folks at On the Beach RV Park
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.
