That I don't know, however most cities have exclusive contracts with companies and you don't get a choice. When you got your utilities started, did that include trash pick up? If so, then you probably are stuck.

No such thing as a public dumpster unless your city happens to have one at their service center or dump. You're going to be stuck using businesses' dumpsters, which is illegal, and you will be fined if you're caught doing it. Honestly $25 a month for trash service in a rural area is CHEAP!

yes--unless you are dumping large bulky or prohibited items
that seems pretty average price to pay
some places bill for garbage in with the water bill but the city DOES contract for one company to do all neighborhoods in city limits--
how long have you been living where you are---

I live in San Antonio, and the once a week garbage pickup just isn't enough for me. (The other day is for recycables.) I always have more garbage than the can holds. Glad to know that I'm not the only one with this problem.

we are not limited to what one can will hold for garbage--we bought a large trash can that rolls and has a lid and put trash bags in it--but we can also sit trash bags outside by the can and they get picked up as well
had a ton of trash yesterday after Christmas that was picked up with no problems--so did the neighbors...

Can't you request a larger trash can? In FW, we can get a 32-, 64-, or 96-gal. trash can. (Obviously, you pay more for a larger size.)
