Another Question About Trash

The photo at the right is what the recycling containers actually look like. The resident who this belongs to painted her house number on it.

The following comment was left on my entry from Monday and I wanted to answer it publicly because the info might help everyone.

"So what if we have more then one can of trash because I usually have 2-3? Will they still take the trash if it's different trash cans? And as a long time resident who pays at least 300+ a year for trash removal I know I don't have the money to spend to buy an extra can?! SO how will this work just curious as I never received any info about this happening.? I only saw it on FB."

My understanding is that you can put up to 2 older cans out with your new one. No need to buy a new one.

You can also try recycling more items to cut down on how many trash cans you put out.

The person who asked the question is right, though, I only saw information about it on Facebook. Maybe there was something in the paper, too, and I missed it. Maybe we get instructions with the new cans?

I'd be interested in hearing everyone's experiences as they receive their new cans. Or if you have any other questions, post them here and if I know or can find out, I'll post an answer.

  1. WOW where am I to store these monster sized cans ? I have difficulty pulling it up my steps onto my porch when it is empty. Or I have to drag it out of my yard, up a 10 inch step into a parking lot then around 2 houses to get to my pick up area. How are my elderly neighbors to deal with them? Does Norristown really think they will help with the loose trash thrown around by the residents?
