Organize to get cheaper curbside trash pick up!

Time for cheaper cur piup

Wareham Residents Unite for cheaper curbside trash pick up!

If you are interested in having residential curbside trash and recycling pick up please contact me at: inforaswim@gmail.com

I will be proposing that the Town investigate the cost of providing this service town-wide as an article on the Town Warrant.

In the mean time any residents / property owners who have or would like would like to have discounted curbside pick-up immediately please let me know.

I have been in contact with several waste disposal companies about getting a discounted rate for Wareham residents but it is all about the number of households that sign up for service.

The more households participating the better the rate.

Surrounding towns have negotiated discounted service for their residents - Wareham can do the same at a better rate because we have 3x as many households.

Please contact Theresa ONeill: inforaswim@gmail.com / text 617-823-4423 for more information.

Thank you

Theresa - Competition keeps prices down in my opinion.  Dooley at $75 a quarter is cheap for weekly trash pickup and recycling.  How much lower do you anticipate getting the price?

That's just $6 a week.  ABC is about that as well.  It actually doesn't make sense to go to the dump once a week.  Although going to the dump can be fun and sometimes we come back with good stuff from the swap shop, the cost of a trip to the dump exceeds $6 in gas, wear n tear, & time.

Interpretation of cost depends upon the context from which the cost is being considered. $75 a quarter = $300 per year. A dump sticker is $40 per year (or $20 a year for seniors).

Hi Andrea, you've been quiet.  Glad to hear from you!

 

True, but the 40 dollar sticker doesn't take the trash away all by itself.
