When you get your new bill for trash services and you ask your neighbor what he is paying for the same service. Pickup is a different day and the bill is basically the same price including fuel tax and other nondescript taxes.
There has to be a mutual agreement between the companies as to what they charge.
To me the fuel charges should be the price of doing business as a trash service company. I guess they believe that people have no choice but to include paying their stockholders and, oh yeah, maybe a golf tournament.
Maybe the U.S. attorneys across the United States should open an investigation into these companies for collusion or price fixing.
