Has anybody been asked to change garbage at commercial accounts. How often do you change the garbage cans. They are places that have food, I imagine they have to be changed more than once a week.

What do you mean by "change"? Swap them out, throw out the old ones and put new ones in? Empty them?

I never have had to do it, but I have seen RFPs that asked for it. I think the timing that it needs to be done really all depends on the location. A restaurant or commercial building you can probably get away with maybe 1x per week. But somewhere like a park, probably needs to be done 2xs a week.

If its asked of you, simply inquire about how often they believe that they get changed out.

We did the trash for a national drug store chain and we would do it 3 times a week.

I haven't done it for my mowing business, but when I worked at the local grocery store they needed emptied every day. We had six cans that sat outside for the public to use and they were full every single day.

I was thinking it was gonna have to be at least 2x's a week. IT wouldnt be bad if we could just do it when we cut it, but I think it will need to be done more

You might as well mop floors while your there. Then you can get one of those sweet shirts and have your wife sow a patch with your name on it.
