I'm reviewing this company on behalf of a friend that uses them. He is very happy with them and has no problems. Their bill is reasonable and they do not increase rates every period like Republic does. They are local and are therefore able to do a little more for you. I am switching from Republic because of having them increase my bill to over $100 and then having multiple phone calls and more bills before it was corrected. Months later, after they said it would never happen again, I received two more bills, both with rate increases...I'm sure they were slowly trying to get me back up to that $100 mark. When I called Republic to cancel they informed me that I have to call every time I see a rate increase to have them put it back to the original rate that was agreed upon because they increase the rate for every single customer for that region and have no way of NOT increasing the bill for one person even if there is an agreement. I said, "Then I would have to call every time I get a bill.". Anyway, I may be writing my own review of C&M later, but my friend speaks highly of them, and since Republic has a half a star rating and C&M has 1.5 stars, I am convinced I am upgrading.

I have used C&M for years and couldn't be happier with their service. I love the fact they will pick up overflow or items too large for the container. The larger company used before moving into an are served by C&M wouldn't pick up the garbage if the lid wouldn't close completely. I haven't been hit with fuel surcharges or any other fluctuating costs. I just learned today that C&M offers recycling at a VERY affordable price with no sorting required. Being a smaller company, you won't get an operator at a call center, but in my mind that's a benefit, not a flaw. I've never had a problem getting a return call when I've had a question. I've found them very easy to work with and enjoy giving them my business.
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.
