Our two page recycling, trash & compost information flyer is available for download in PDF format:
30 gallons is an average size trash barrel, or about 2 1/2 standard 12 gallon kitchen bags. We charge for trash by weight or volume, whichever one is greater, assuming up to 1 pound per gallon. Additional trash is $2.50 per 10 gallons or pounds, if your Pedal Person has space to take it. Advance notice or an extra pickup may be necessary depending on how much extra you have.
For weekly pickups, we'll take up a maximum of four 14-gallon tubs (which we provide) of recycling per pickup. For biweekly or monthly pickups, we'll take a maximum of three 14-gallon tubs. Note that cardboard, when flattened and left outside of the tubs, also counts towards these totals. (For example, a biweekly pickup may be thought of as having 2 14-gallon tubs of paper and containers, plus several medium sized pieces of cardboard.) If the worker has space, extra recycling may be taken for $2.50 per 14-gallon tub.
Compost pickups are included in the cost of any level of trash service. We'll take up to 8 gallons of compost per pickup.
If we have space, additional compost counts towards one's trash totals, after which is an extra $.25/pound.
Regular amounts above all of these levels can be arranged. Contact us to discuss your specific situation. See our FAQ and the ten reasons to switch for more information.
