Weird topic of conversation, but I'm curious. How does your system work? Once a week pick up? Limitations? Cost? With just the two of us we have very little garbage, especially because we recycle. Oh, that's another question: is your recycling picked up? We must take ours to a recycling center. Anyhow, I find it entirely flawed and unfair that I pay the same for my one bag of garbage as a person up the street with five, six, or even more. If people were charged by the bag or by weight, perhaps more people would recycle. Of course, around here you'd also have to worry about more dumping, but... As a child back in the 80s and 90s, garbage collection wasn't even offered where I live. We burned what we could and the rest went to the gully on the farm.
