How Can My Business Save Money on Garbage in Maryland?
Do you own a business in Maryland or the surrounding area, and feel that you are being overcharged for trash and recycling service? Have you noticed that your costs have gradually escalated to an amount that is much more than what you ever expected to pay when you signed up for service? Have you had trouble reaching the representative who originally signed you up for trash service? Have you ever become so frustrated with your vendor that you attempted to cancel service, only to find that your hauling contract renewed for another three years about six months ago without any action by you or your hauler?
If you have experienced any of the above scenarios, then you are familiar with the policies of most of the hauling companies throughout Maryland. Although the waste and recycling industry is very competitive in Maryland, it is standard operating procedure for virtually every hauler in this market to implement strategic price increases and tack on surcharges which are difficult if not impossible to understand before their customers sign up. Some of the reps from these companies would make great magicians, because they disappear when you call to inquire about why your price has gone up. It has become general practice for waste hauling vendors to incorporate built-in price increases that can top 10-12% of the invoice amount annually, however they usually only increase your bills by small increments, sometimes even reducing the price temporarily to give the illusion that your price is actually dropping, so that your Accounts Payable Department does not notice the increase. It can become a real headache for Business Owners to keep their haulers from raising their prices, if they can accomplish this at all.
