The service below 44 is the same service above 44 as of October 1st. According to OBB, the exception to this service is the historic area.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this new method of collection and incinerating at the Covanta Facility. Now I'm assured all trash, yard waste and what used to be our recycle materials are not winding up in a landfill. Win Win for all.

I was told by the department of trash collection that the maximum is 10 bags.

I live in Oak Grove in LadyLake, 1st one truck that empty's the green cans comes thru, then the recycle truck comes thru, then another truck with a worker on the back comes thru and gathers up everything left like piles of brush or whatever. 3 trucks the same day.

Because they have to pay to dump at the trash burner site after a fairly long ride ( compared to the ride to the transfer station off Powell rd.)

I don't have an issue with the new trash pickup process. I DO have an issue with the increased cost, and the guaranteed increase over the next 5 years. We already paid far more than if we were hiring a competitive company to pick up our trash.

I would think that putting everyone on the same plan would save them money (and it does!), but they charge more than they should because you have no other options. Once again, greed at work,

Disgusted about the lack of recycling and the supposed better system of less work to pick up because they cancelled a pick up day. Saving my aluminum cans and bringing them to recycling myself. By the way, glass is still going to a landfill.

Yes, great deal they got less pickUp pay more. When I was in military had saying “do more with less”. Now we get “less with more cost.”

It's like $2.85! That's only $22.23 a month. I'd paid that just for the increased ease of preparing and throwing out my trash not to mention the energy generating and reduced landfill aspect.

Greed? How about rather impressive technology and common sense?

Much easier, but not doing the "recycling thing" makes me feel a bit guilty, after all these years. But I'll get over it (in a couple of weeks).

Hilarious!
Waste to Energy is a great alternative and it’s not all incinerated. They do filter out those materials which can easily be recycled.
