How often does your Garbage (Trash) get collected?

I was excited to hear we are having an extra collection over the christmas break as I'm sure there will be lots of extra packaging to dispose of. Do you recycle also. Ours is put in separate bins to recycle.

Hey there. What an odd/silly/fun post! ;) Thought I'd stop by and respond... :) Anyway, our trash is picked up once a week, every friday! I don't think they are collecting anytime extra in our area. :) We don't have recycle bins to use!

After I put the discussion up, I thought it was probably a bit bizarre, but it was some good news for me as my bin is already full and christmas is on its way with lots of trash!!!haha Fun discussions can be interesting as well...

I have since found out that the extra collection we have allows you to put any unwanted things out not just garbage. So we can do a yard clean up before we move house... Yaay!!!

I have to pull a pail out two times a week. It is so far, about 1/4 of a mile of dirt roads. So, now I just leave it there. Take the garbage, though it into the truck, and drop it off when we leave the house. We do not recycle out here.

Sounds like a lot of work to get rid of your trash. I am lucky in some things!

It is because we live way out from the city. But it's worth it overall.

Our rubbish gets collected every week - on a Monday night - Tuesday morning. I am glad that I will be home this morning as I can put extra rubbish out with the Christmas wrapping, etc.

Garbage was collected yeaterday and it is nearly full again from all of our christmas waste. Thank goodness for the extra collection this week.

Our garbage is collected every Friday, but we only leave it out if the bin is full, as it costs 7 euros each time it is collected, as well as an annual fee of 150 euros. We also have a recycle bin which is collected once every month and there is no charge for this collection.

We only pay with our rates at the end of the year. It is a standard fee but if you have rental accomodation you don't have to pay. Thanks for your response

Ours is once a week. The recycle and trash are both picked up on Wednesday morning. Sometimes around the Holidays they come either at a different time or an extra time to pick Holiday garbage up becuase there is more of it and they don't actually want to be out on the actually day of the Holiday.

our garbage man came this morning (christmas say) and we have an extra pickup next week which will be handy with the wrappings the children have discarded from their gifts!

Our garbage goes out once a week regardless of holidays, we have recycling alternate weeks and also green waste. Yes I do recycle as much as possible and the bin is usually always full and the rubiish half empty. That must be a good sign!

Local councils are starting to realise that if they give us the opportunity, we will recycle as much as possible.

We have our regular Wheely bin emptied weekly, on a friday am, & the recycle bin fortnightly. But the council is looking at doing the recycle bin weekly.. Looking forward to that.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Maybe when they realise how important recycling is they will increase that as well.
