I'm in Newfoundland, and in my area we have trash pick up on friday, we can put anything out in trash no bill to pay for it.
As for Recycleing, we got 5 cents per beverage container, juice boxes, cola cans etc but we have to bring them to the recycleing place to get it. If we choose to do so. Which we do.
I honestly think recycleing should be mandatory, and be sorted and put to the curb for pick up. Which I think will be something that is going to happen here in the near future.

Ours seems to be a good system, but I have always questioned what happens to separated, recycled goods after we drop them off.
We have a mess-load of large bins where community folk can drop-off the likes of glass, plastic, paper, etc, for no charge, so that in itself is encouraging and I believe helps move recycling ahead.
However, with all of the stories I have heard related to separated goods being disposed of in the same fashion as regular ordinary household waste, I'm not entirely convinced that all of the effort we put into recycling and reducing is changing or altering the course of direction.
