It has been two weeks since my garbage has been picked up!! I have talked to three supervisors and all thee of them have told me " yes ma'am we will have someone out there today or tomorrow." so this has happened over the past six days. STILL NO TRASH PICKED UP! Now I have four extra bags of trash that I have to keep indoors because the racoons will have it all over road if I put it out! This is April 9th and I havent had trash picked up since MARCH!!! My bill is paid up. And I keep being told is my orig. driver is on vacation.....so what does that mean, the temporary driver just boycotted Wynn Ranch Road!!! Hudson FL

I have moved twice all I had to do was call and give new address and they never missed a pick up. I also have not stayed with the rules and even waited one morning for them to come to see if it would be a problem with some home improvements and the trash I was having to put out. The guys were the nicest they had no problem with the over sized things and said if there was more just put it down and they would take care of it. So thanks guys for making our trash issue not an issue at all.
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.
