Garbage is picked up in this town every day except Sunday. The trucks come in the morning and pick up and the recycle trucks come every couple days. I think the town has a good system. In several parts of the town you find dumpsters. Each home owner is responsible for putting refuse into these dumpsters. You are supposed to bag it and not dump it loose. Not everyone complies with this rule, but I think more do than before. The dumpsters are sprayed and cleaned at intervals. In a couple sections are recycle dumpsters and outside most bars there is a glass recycle bin. The truck for the glass recycle material is just a smaller version of the normal dumpster truck. The only issue with the whole trash system is a price to pay. The town used to do this work and not very well. Now that there is a private company doing the work it works better and the dumpster areas are cleaner and well maintained. The cost for rubbish pick up has gone up and not without major discord among the commune. Charge for the service is dependent on the square footage of your house. The rubbish firm is also responsible for street cleaning. I find the place cleaner since they have switched to a private company.
