How often is your trash picked up?

I was reading an article today about the economy causing inconveniences as retailers and others cut back on hours to save money.

One item of note was that in Dallas, they've cut back on trash pick up to once a week. I was surprised because I've never heard of anywhere that had trash pickup more than once a week.

How often is your trash picked up?

We live in the country now, so we have to take our trash to a consolidated site, but in the past, our trash was always picked up just once a week.

Our trash and recycling have always been once a week here. And, we're working on trying to reduce how often we take out the trash as it is. Recycling always has to go it, it's usually full, but the trash is not always full enough to take out in one week (just 3 of us, very little packaged food, reuse/recycle/compost as much as possible). So far the record is 3 weeks on one trash bag!

It's once a week here and the recycling is every two weeks.


My brother used to live in Brooklyn, and he put his trash out every day.

Ours is picked up twice a week, but it is a private collection company that we have to pay for. We have no municipal trash collection. Recycling is done by the county, and is picked up every other week.

Trash twice a week. Recyclables once a week.

I think most places I lived it was once a week.
