    Usually, one trash can is enough for my weekly garbage bags, but this week, I have extra.  Can I put the filled trash bags on the curb beside my trash can?

    Every service is different. Some are picked up by hand, other by apparatus on the truck.  Some services don't want their guys getting out of the truck (liability) so I would call your service and ask them.  You likely can make arrangements for a special pickup.

    In my experience if you put it out there then the trash service will pick it up. However, this may depend of the type of neighborhood you live in.
