We encourage you to visit with your new neighbor regarding which service they are using, and make similar arrangements. Tenants pay for their own service and buy garbage tags to put on the bags they set out weekly. We don’t include this in our rent as we have tenants who prefer to economize by taking their trash directly to the dump themselves, bypassing the carriers’ fees. Recycling is free, and you set it out to the curb every other week. All you need to know is here, at Tompkins County Recycles They also list garbage haulers and contact information.
