This is a great question. To keep our program affordable for everyone, our team has done extensive research on how much the average home recycles. Based on this data, we provide 8 bags per month, per every other week subscription. With that being said, we understand that not everyone produces the same amount of recycling. To keep costs down for those that do not recycle more than this allotted amount, we provide the option to increase your service level for an additional fee for those that need to recycle more.
