Just cut garbage service to every other week
Our family recycles a huge amount of plastic containers, aluminum cans, steel cans, cardboard, paper, and glass. We use stackable plastic bins and a big cardboard box for all the stuff and store it in the garage. We take it to a collection center every 4 months or so while we are out. It's something we enjoy doing.
Because we recycle so much, there isn't a lot of trash in the bin every week. The private garbage hauling rates have been going up 10%-15% every year for the last 3 or 4. It was up to $15/month and so we cut it back to every other week at $11.25/month (80 gallons).
I would rather have gone halves with one of my neighbors, but no one else recycles and so they need all the bin space they can get.
When I use to work for the state, a co-worker and other state workers would sneak garbage into the state dumpster once a week to avoid the charge. To keep the harmony, I never turned anyone in. I don't think they ever got caught. I did give my co-worker some grief about it though.
