Why do I have to purchase more bags/service?

Our team has done extensive research on the average amount of recycling a household generates. Based on this data, we provide a supply of 110 bags per year which allows for approximately 4-5 bags per pickup, per every other week subscription. For weekly customers, the allotment is increased to the equivalent of a 3-year supply. This allows us to keep our program affordable for everyone as well as better track how much recycling is being brought in. 

We understand that not everyone produces the same amount of recycling. To keep costs down for those that do not recycle more than the average amount and to account for the extra recycling being brought in, we provide the option to increase your service level to weekly and increase your number of allotted bags, or purchase more bags for an additional fee. 

For glass customers, we provide a supply of 26 bags per year. This equates to 1 bag per pickup for every other week customers or approximately 2 bags per month. Due to the nature of glass being more expensive to recycle, additional ordering of glass bags before your year's expiration will result in an additional fee. This is to account for the extra glass recycling being brought in.
