I do but I don't generate a lot of trash since I live alone. I haven't put either bins out for a week or two sometimes.
Fort Worth has a great program.
You get two big wheeled containers -- all your trash goes in one and all the recycling goes in the other. You don't have to sort.
We just keep two containers in the kitchen. We put the recycling out at the street every week but usually only put the trash out every week or three (or earlier if it gets rank).
Improving the signal-to-noise ratio
most of the time. Especially when it comes to beer bottles, beer cans a and liquor bottles. Nice to go cash them in for a case.
we often have more recycling than garbage at my place with my roomates.

stay in drugs, eat school, and don't do vegetables
Beer & soda cans go back for deposit. Tough sometimes to time your visit to avoid the Mexicans or the homeless dudes with 3 black bags of cans . Oh well.
Always. One bin for trash, one for recyclables.
Except during undergrad, because the city didn't do it.

All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.
We're forced too...
They make the trash bin so small and only pick it up every two weeks you pretty much have to recycle.
Other stuff like plastics
I also take glass to a bin not to far from the house and return bottles (glass and plastic) for the deposit.
I recycle everything I can. I save non-twist off beer bottles for refilling with home brew. Unfortunately my room mate that has trash and recycle duty is lazy as **** and sometimes forgets to take both out for a week, sometimes more, at a time. He is also wasteful so the garbage fills up fast.
It is crazy what Waste Management has done to me!
I cringe when I see someone put a can into the garbage can!
We have 1 20 gallon can for garbage, 1 96 gallon cart for recyclables and 1 96 gallon cart for yard/food waste. With the yard/food waste cart we are able to chuck most of our kitchen waste into it so we barely have any garbage. I can go close to 2 months without putting the garbage can out!
Our WM drivers are awesome and even put my cans/carts back up next to the house after they empty them!
I really wish everyone would update their location in their profile!
Someone buy my car already!!
Always looking for free firewood to feed my hungry wood stove!
