So I'm renting a house this summer. RE broker just told me there is no garbage collection -- I either have to pay $37 per pick or drive my garbage (I mean are they really serious) to the town dump for $10 per drop off. How common is this in the real world? I grew up in the suburbs and I know there was village sanitation -- my pops just tipped them with a bottle of gatorade every now and again.
Just do what we do out in the sticks. If it's a car prop it up on blocks and re-use the tires. The rest of it, sneak it into your neighbor's yard after dark, and their dog has been brought inside.
I feel like you're just begging for this question so I'll ask..... Where is the house?
It's on LI. RE broker is telling me it's county wide policy.
Just throw it over the fence into Billy Joel's yard.
Recycle. Be creative.
The EBITDA at trash haulers is ridiculous, but the interest and depreciation expense usually give them a net loss for the year, meaning low income tax expense. The cash flow from operations on a $30 million hauler can be over $10 million. So the obvious play here is to dump your trash at the house of a neighbor who isn't home that weekend.
this just seems absurd to me
Picturing you driving bags and bags of trash in the back of your 7 series is making me laugh. Do that and take pics
People in your county are prob in a higher tax bracket and thus voted against trash collection being added to local taxes.
it is common in rural areas. you pay taxes to a city for trash collection, or HOA fees in a community. if you don't have either of those, who else would pay for it?
this is far from a rural area. You pay county property taxes, no idea on the local taxes (if any).
I can get the very rural area thing since it would probably be costly, but I'm going to say that Police, fire and sanitation are the core services that should be provided by either the Town or County (on top of K-12 education ofcourse).
you must have missed the advice thread where he ended up purchasing his soccer mom wagon.
Lol @ G$ giving a fuck about money
In Minnesota, we have to pay for trash and recycling service, and most towns have five companies to negotiate prices for service. When I first moved up here, we hadn't done it before, left trash out on the first time, and didn't understand why it wasn't picked up.
If you just put it out on a day everyone else was collected, would they really know? Seems like they would probably just pick it up.
When I was a kid we lived in an unincorporated area. Paid county taxes but had to take our trash to the dump every weekend.
What country have you been living in for the past 20 years?
from my experience trash collection is always done at the town or community level, not county. if i lived 10 miles from my nearest neighbor i wouldn't really expect the county to send their garbage truck out to my house once a week. and if i was in a city, i wouldn't want to pay extra taxes to the county so they can canvas the rural areas. your problem probably arose because the people in your town chose lower taxes over government services. or the house is an unincorporated area just outside of town (and the people probably bought there to avoid local taxes).
My brother lives in Germantown and does not pay for trash pick up so he throws his bag in the back of his pickup and finds a dumpster or trash can when he needs to. I don't really want to know what he does with it. I'm scared to ask too many questions.
It wasnt part of pur taxes when i was a kid but it was more like 30 bucks a month than 300
I'm guessing he throws his bag in the back of his pickup and finds a dumpster or trash can when he needs to.
Paying for garbage removal sucks but it's what makes the premium board great!

In Anne arundel trash and recycling is at the county level. A portion of our property tax pays for it
the lower taxes for no garbage pick-up might one of the dumbest things I've heard. Everyone produces garbage and everyone's shit stinks. There's not really much around it. I get that a private company probably has lower labor costs but everyone on the block needs to have their garbage picked up and it's way more costly for everyone scheduling it on their own. Get one truck to come down the block once or twice a week. I bet there's 4 or 5 trucks coming by once a week instead.
