Even when I've rented, I have never paid for this (the landlord has picked up the cost). When I owned a home, it came out of 'taxes' I think..? (it has been a long time.)
Do they come by once a week and empty your cans? Do you get a bill based on the cans you have?
Our real estate agent is not very forthcoming.
Also if someone could point me toward a link about 'renter's rights' in VT I would appreciate it.

It depends on where you live and what's in the lease if you rent. I rent a home out and it's the renters responsibility to deal with trash removal. If I were to deal with the trash removal then I would have to add that to the rent. Most towns in the state don't have trash removal and it's the individuals responsibility to dispose of it. The cost varies on where you live and what you want removed. Some companies also charge you to remove recycling as well as the trash. When I lived in a rural area of the state the trash removal was more expensive. I don't remember the exact cost but it was between $35-$40 per month. In Colchester it's about $25 per month. At both locations they came once a week. There would be an extra charge if there was a large amount of trash to remove. It can be a bit expensive, I think that's why many of the old time Vermonters burn their trash every month to save a little money.

As a NYC resident, I've also been wondering about this...I'm so used to having trash removal as a standard thing. I know that when we move, I will most definitely set up a composting system, so that I can use our garbage efficiently!

In Proctor your extremely high taxes covered trash pick-up
and walk clearing.

We have a compost pile and the town has a recycling center. If your town doesnt have a recycle drop-off center, the trash hauling companies will take it. We certainly compost/recycle more than we throw away!

What we do now is bring our trash to a transfer station. Most towns have one or at least one close by. It's much cheaper than having a service pick up you trash. We pay 2.50 per bag (I believe 35 gallon bags) and recycling is free if you have trash. More than 50% of our waste is recyclable. We compost all of our compostable kitchen and yard waste as well. Another good tip is to shred anything with personal information on it. My in-laws live in Fl and the area they live in use convicts to sort the recycling. Not the kind of people I would want going through my recycling or trash and finding personal information.

Growing up, part of the ritual was the Saturday trip to the town dump. As a matter of fact WDEV even has a program on Saturday mornings called "Music to go to the dump by." A lot has changed though. Expect different towns and cities to have different rules. The easy way to check is to call the town clerk office and ask.

We were told it didn't include it (a few places we saw). It's up to the landlord. Anyhow, I guess I will find out more. Money's going to be tight and I don't want to 'throw it away' (hahah, bad pun).
