Too expensive (trash pick up fee of $87 + fuel recovery fee of $28 every 3 months current as of January 1, 2014). And service is questionable... assigned trash pickup day time of pick up varies weekly anytime between 6am and 7pm. No pick up on major holidays if it falls on your pick up day and with no warning as to when it will be picked up.

We've had Allied Waste for the past 3 years but are about to switch. Since moving in March, we've had trouble with missed pickups, and the customer service department doesn't seem bothered by it. Just today, I called (for the 4th time in the past week) about a missed pickup that they still haven't made up. She was so rude to me as wouldn't even let me explain the situation to her. When I asked to speak to a supervisor about getting a credit to our account for the missed pickup, she wouldn't transfer for me. Instead, SHE talked to the supervisor for me, which resulted in a whopping $3 credit. Very insulting. For the past 4 days, we have our can by the road based on their instructions, and they never come to pick it up. Way too expensive for such lackluster service, and I shouldn't have to talk to 4 different people to get my trash picked up.

Very nice people. They were very good about trying to accomodate my schedule.
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.
