I was just in Hilo and noticed that most people have to take their garbage to the dump themselves.

Is it the local way to just do it yourself or would a trash pick up business be a good idea?

There are several businesses that do this already. Problem is, too many people don't want to pay...

Not enough money to pay especially when it can be done for free. It isn't that big of a deal to dump the rubbish off at the transfer station so folks aren't really willing to pay that much to have it done.

Doesn't the transfer station charge a tipping fee to commercial folks? So to haul rubbish to the dump, you'd need a truck, a driver, gas money AND pay a fee each time you went there. Dunno if there would be a lot of profit left over?
