We received a letter of  intent  to place a lien against our  retirement home at   Las Vegas , NV ***** .
We strongly disagree with the intention. We always have a perfect credit score and we always pay our bills on time. 
However,  Republic Services sent us a bill $157.32  in late May , 2010 for the solid wasted service that we never received. 
We contacted Mr. Raul Aguilar from  Republic Services right away and told him that the house is our retirement home ,it is vacant.  
Currently we live and work in Columbia, South Carolina. Therefore there is no trash from the  house for  Republic Services  to pick up . 
 We do not need the solid waste service.  We also ask him not to bill us for the service that we never received. Mr. Raul Aguilar  wanted  us 
to provide a closing electrical bill and water bill or a receipt from the trash transfer station. But  our Home Owner Association requires that 
we maintain the utility for the  safety of the community to ensure that the home does not appear abandoned.  We will receive fines from  the
 HOA if we  cut off our light or the water.  In addition, "Community Safety"  is  the interest of everyone.  Force us  to discontinue the utility should 
 not be the  intention of  the Republic Service company. 
 Since we work and live in South Carolina. There is no trash for us to dump to the transfer station nor there are trashes from the vacant house for  
Republic  company to pick up. 
The fact is that the company did not provide any service to us for the whole year ( July 2009--Sept. 2010 ) but hit us with one whole years' bill  $157.32. 
How could any company expect to get paid without providing service ?  It seems to me that  the company uses the  county ordinance  as an entitlement to 
 collect from all home owners. They focus on  getting dirty rich by unfair business practice ( Billing for Service never provided/ received ) !! 
"Republic Service"  forgets its' mission as a service company  and  ignores  the  county's emphases to  them as   franchisee   on  " Public Health" and 
" Customer Service" as well as the options that the county granted it's residents : choices of  not  using  "Republic Service" with  qualified evidences . 
*** We offered to provide the company  of our  evidences that  the house is vacant and we do not  need Solid Waste Service : 
1)  We live and work in South Carolina and
2)  We  have airfare and hotel bills to document our  short trips to Las Vegas in 2009 and 2010. 
Please help !  We do not need additional harassment from Republic Services.
Thank you.
