What Is the Average Cost of Household Trash Pickup?

The average cost of household track pickup services is between $10 and $40 a month or $140 and $250 a year. This is for the trash pickup services provided by the city or town.

If an independent company is needed for trash pickup, it could cost more. This is often needed in rural areas where the city trash truck is not available. Some companies and cities also charge a setup fee when ordering pickup services. There might be an extra fee for picking up recycling cans. These prices do not reflect the price for hiring a hauling company to pick up waste such as yard waste, junk or larger recyclable items.
