    Get to know your trash/yard waste drivers they love to make extra money. Get a cell number if possible and find the areas they are working if not in your community. Schedule cleanups for the week not weekends. Good luck.

    This post is 10 years old so you may not have any luck getting replies from him but if you follow the process he used you can probably find the same places. FWIW I pay $10 minimum and $10/Ton here but your rates will be what the market will bear and you're in an expensive market.

    I am really having hard time with this, there is a transfer facility near by, insane changes, 15 $ for cubic yard (may be as big as a washing machine). Waste management charge 430 for their 15 ft/5 ft collection bin!!has things gone up that much in 10 years!! EPA is not picking the phone , will try again today.
