There are several different ways to manage rubbish removal. Sometimes, it is included in your city utility bill. If your neighborhood has an HOA, they might have a private contract. Just ask your neighbors about it.
Typically the city takes care of it, but if they aren't then you can hire a service to do it for you. I would recommend asking your neighbors how they have it taken care of. There are a lot of different services available to us these days concerning rubbish removal, and I'm sure you can find one that works for you. Good luck! http://www.coreminibins.com
We use Waste Tech, which is $34/month for a large barrel that is picked up once a week and they do offer recycling. With the amount that they charge at the landfill, our cost are comparable when considering the fee for the sticker and the hefty fee for each bag of trash dumped. Also considering the limited hours they are open and the affect on your vehicle (smell and cleaning needed), it's easy to make the choice for pick-up.
All towns are different. Here in Westport, we contract with someone or you can pay as you throw at the local dump. I find it easier to use ABC Disposal. They pick up at the curb weekkly and they take everything.
No problems - I have used them for the last 15 years.
In the town of Rehoboth, MA it is private trash pick-up. There are several companies to chose from and their fees vary. Several offer free recycling as well. We also have a landfill in town. You can purchase a sticker from the town hall and bring your trash to the landfill yourself if you prefer.
You may wish to more specific with your question, as to where, what kind of trash, recycleables, bulk, etc.--if you are referring to a condo or co-op, management can best answer your question--or if you have an agent ask him/her for the information.
