I would personally like to give the City of Fitchbug a standing ovation! I was working on some research today about the waste management options in Fitchburg, and this is what I discovered:
First, a nifty little option called the Bagster. (http://www.thebagster.com) This item can be purchased at (according to their sales rep) Home Depot or Menards ($30.) It is a portable dumpster that comes folded up. You can fill it with up to 3300 pounds, call to pay for and schedule a pickup ($169), and in 2-3 days it will disappear from your driveway. This service is through Waste Management.
Next, I talked to the City of Fitchburg and discovered the really exciting part: UNLIMITED RECYCLING! Yup, as long as it is in clear plastic bags, there is no additional charge for recycling! I think this is a great way to get residents to be more conscious about what they purchase and discard.
The city does offer a solution to pick up additional refuse bags curb side. You can buy tags at $17.50 for five tags. That will allow you to fill five additional 32 gallon bags of garbage.
