Blue Ridge Trash
I've been very happy with this service for 3 + years now. I prefer to use local businesses rather than the BIG guys, because I like to support my neighbors. Blue Ridge Trash has always been on time, courteous and never missed a pickup. They missed a pickup at my house last week. I stopped by their office today, (my trash pickup day) and explained my problem. The first question they asked me was "did you call to let us know?" I said "no". They apologized for their error, and told me that had I called they would have corrected their mistake that same day. What really impressed me was the fellow that actually picks up the curbside trash stopped to let me know that it wouldn't happen again. Now that's the kind of service I like.

Poor service. Constantly leave 6" to 12" of trash in can and ALWAYS leave lid open whether it is raining or snowing. I have called to report this and recently met another customer that has the same problems?
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.
