Kiplinger: Your Guide to Holiday Tipping

5. Your Trash and Recycling Collectors

Suggested Tip:
$10 to $30 each

You might hear them coming and going every trash day. But instead of rolling over and hitting the snooze button, around this time of year, consider throwing on your fuzzy slippers and bathrobe and catching some face time with your trash collectors. You should hand them their tips in an envelope with a nice note or holiday card directly.

But check on the rules for your municipality. Some jurisdictions forbid workers from accepting cash, according to the Emily Post Institute.
