Recycling fee too high


Have you noticed the increase in your Waste Management bill lately? If not, let me inform you that the recycling fee on that bill has increased by 600 percent over the last year.

On June. 30, 2012, my fee was $3.09 for three months, on June 1, 2013, the fee was $21.48 for three months. It seems that Waste Management has a contract that allows them to force us to pay the recycling fee if we want it or not.

I don’t know what government official gave them this right, but they should by fired immediately. Waste Management’s Motto is “Think Green.” The only green they care about is what goes in their pockets.

I have canceled my Waste Management services.
