Do you have to take it somewhere or do they come pick it up? Have to take it and can only take it on certain days at certain times. (You can probably guess how good that's been going lately.)

Is it mandatory? No, they make it so difficult these days it's almost like they DON'T want you to recycle.
Do you have to separate the recyclables? Yep

Is it free? Yes

Is it mandatory? it is mandatory to pay for it (if you're sign up for garage service) but not mandatory to participate. Although our city has a 2 garbage can per week limit to encourage recycling but we rarely fill even 1 can a week
Do you have to separate the recyclables? no just throw them on in a plastic bin
Is it free? no we pay for it our garbage service

We pay a local business to come pick up our recycling once a week. We don't have to separate it, they do that. Our city does recycle, but there's no free curbside pick up program. I wish there was.

We also have returnable soda and beer cans and bottles when you buy them you pay a $.05 deposit that you get back when you return them, there is a place in the next town over that will give you $.06 for them

We have three garbage bins, one for household rubbish, one for green waste (prunings, leaves in autumn, etc) and one for paper/plastic/cans.

The household rubbish goes out every week and the green waste and the recycling bin go out once a fortnight on a rotational basis, the council sends us a little calendar fridge magnet which tells us which week we need to put which bin out at the start of each year.

And yes its free.

Oh, also, our council is one of the very few in Victoria (that ive noticed) that has recycling bins on the street next to rubbish bins.
