Best Way Disposal
This company sends it's trucks out and has blown right by our trash receptacle TWOA times so far, and we have had there service for years. This second time our trash can was out before 8:00 AM and the garbage truck picked up our neighbors RIGHT BY OUR CAN FOUR FEET AWAY, but they neglected to pick ours up again. The first time we brought the trash out THE NIGHT BEFORE trash day, and their excuse for not picking it up that time was that it wasn't out to the road on time. Wow! We switched our service to theirs because we were not satisfied with another company''s prices. So what can you do in a situation like this?!?!?!? You get the choice of either break my arm or break my arm and leg, either way you are broken - how frustrating.Well, I hope that this helps you in some way. I wish that I could get on here and tell you how wonderful and professional thar their service is, but I cannot. I hate to be negative like this, but I am just stating the truth. The fact that they neglect us by skipping by our can when the bill was paid up and not late is totally disappointing

I had trash, recycle, and yard waste with Best Way for 6 years. Each year I would pay half of the yard waste because it was 140.00 and I just couldn't pay it all at once. This year (2016) they didn't pick up the yard waste when I called to ask why they stated they wouldn't pick up the container until I sent them the remaining 70.00 they had always picked it up in previous years. I have been a customer in good standing for years and this is how they treat me. The first person I talked with stated they wouldn't give me my 75.00 dollars back when I got upset she hung up on me. Needless to say I no longer have Best Way, my new provider gave me a better deal and picks up my recycling bin twice a month instead of once a month. Best Way needs to find a better way for sure.

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.
