Sustainable Services with Summit Waste and Recycling

We have developed a program with a local waste hauler, Summit, to improve our access to waste management services in Applewood. By partnering with Summit, we will decrease trash truck traffic and improve our access to recycling and curbside compost services. We can also take advantage of group pricing and innovative “pay as you throw” approaches that help divert waste from landfills into more sustainable recycling and compost streams. Read on for more information!

Interested in learning more, or have questions before signing up? Keep reading for more details and contact Summit with any questions:

Our pricing packages are included below – “Green” packages have more frequent recycling pick up and “Standard” packages have more frequent trash pick up. “Pay as you throw” allows participants to only pay for trash when needed – the more you recycle or compost, the more you save money and our environment! To take advantage of best pricing, residents must sign up for both recycling and trash, and can add compost services if desired.

Keep in mind, these rates for compost include up to 64 gallons of compostable yard waste and food scraps weekly, with a share of compost for your yard or garden twice yearly! Compared to other services available in this area, these options are much higher volume – consider sharing a service between you and your neighbors!!
