I have been with the same garbage hauler for 14 years (my fault only renegotiated once). Got first bill this year price went from $95/month to $144/month i about fell over. Needles to say i was pissed called them, all they said is prices gone up. So i called the two other company's and got price of $103 and $77 from the other 2 haulers. Boy that 77 looked great so i called my original hauler and told them i was canceling their service and low and behold they said hold on let me see what kind of price we can get you, i said there is no way you can cut it in half. Well my new price with all fees and no surcharges is now $56 / month. so needless to say take the time and get pricing and renegotiate your garbage bill more money in my pocket.
