One of the questions I'm asked as a Realtor in Williamson County, TN is "what about trash and recycling?"
Coming from California originally, where both trash AND recycling were picked up from my home, I sometimes forget we need to take an extra step here in TN if we want to recycle (and sometimes if you want someone to come get your trash for you!). After 8 years, I still can't bring myself to throw recycle away (oh, the guilt I feel when I do! *grin*) - nor can I get usedto hauling my trash to the dump. Fortunately, there's something called "convenience centers" in almost every neighborhood in Williamson County making it easy to get rid of everything in one fair swoop. The best part... it's free!
Other areas served by private pickup
My favorite trash company is Southall Sanitation. For $25/mo, they will pick up trash twice a week.
However, if you don't want to pay for trash pickup, regardless of how cheap, you can always take it to your local convenience center (which is where you can drop off your re-cycle too). All you need to do is sort your recycle into glass, cardboard, plastic, etc. Here's the addresses:
