Recology is ripping everyone off. Just after their contract was renewed, they raised rates. They force customers to use recycling bins but do not allow plastic bags clearly marked as recyclable, including kitchen garbage bags. Their website says that the type of recyclables allowed is based on "end market", which means if Recology can't make money on that recyclable item then it becomes garbage (landfill).
Recology also forces everyone to have a large recycle container and small garbage container, even though the list of recyclable (aka: profitable) items get smaller, which means you need a larger garbage can. That is not possible, unless you want to pay EXTRA for a larger garbage can.
Finally, Recology places radio ads that imply garbage along the roads near the dump are from people hauling their own garbage. But we have all witnessed Recology trucks with garbage flying out of the top, sometimes leaving a debris trail miles long. Come on Recology, stop lying and take responsibility.
If any of this bothers you, give them a call.
