If you really want to help the effort - Start with reducing your waste to have the city haul away.   Then compost everything you can in our compost piles or your worm bin to use this waste in gardens is way better than hauling miles away to get burned in the incinerator.  

Talk with council about getting real garbage cans - the large ones that have lids and can take most of you waste for recycling rather than the silly little open containers they give now that are too small and paper gets wet in and renders it useless for recycling and blows away because there is no lid.
