Last week a different garbage company came in and gave me a bid for $150.00 a month. I took their service at once. On Aug.12 2011 I had my husband call waste management to pick up their dumpsters. I didn't remember signing any contract of theirs but I was told in 2006 I signed a 3 year contract and that after 3 years it automaticlly renew for a year at a time and I would need to give a 90 day notice but my contract renewed on Aug. 1 2011 so I was past the time for a 90 day notice. We basically told them to pick up their dumpsters and they said see you in court. Today Aug. 18th. we recieved a copy of the contract stating that we would need to send them $958.00 plus $75.00 container refurbush. But I think it may be more now that were not in our 90 days. Also they want a writting notice thats certified. They recomended not making any changes yet, but I know they know we already have. Another thing I signed the contract in 2006 but the one they sent me had it marked for twice a week pick up and that never happened till 2008. Also, they have been sending me a new contract to sign offering me coupons if I sign it, but I never did. I do not have a copy of the original contract but I do have a copy of the one they keep sending me. A $328.00 savings would be great in these times. I am debating if I want to talk to my attorney or if I should borrow the $1000.00 or more and still save in the end. I know one thing will be warning people around town that still have waste management. Who really reads all the small print on the back of the contract for a garbage pick up and its a full page. They really cover themselves. I never heard of a 3 year contract that after 3 years it automatically renews for a year at a time.
