Stacy's Trash Svc
We've used these fine folk since 2008 and have nothing but good things to say about them. Where we live they tend to arrive in the mornings to afternoon. It's the little things they do that they don't have to that makes me love them so much. For example, since the neighborhood dogs will occasionally tear up the trash, we like to wait till they are here before putting it out. After telling them this they kindly agreed to honk, and even call us now, as they go past our house and up the hill to take care of the neighbors thus letting us know they are here and giving time to put out the trash for them.The other kind thing was after a hospital stay walking the trash down to the end of the drive was very difficult for a couple weeks. During these weeks they drove up our windy narrow drive so as to save us that walk.I could go on and on about how great these folk are. So I'll simply end this by saying if you are looking for quality service, then Stacy's Trash Service is for you!
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.
