DUNDEE SAVES $ 500,000 and MORE? By Waymon: WWW. Dundee WatchDog.COM I came away from our town council meeting on June 10, 2014 thrilled, but bewildered by some who wanted to stay with Republic Services Trash & Recycle when their price is so much higher? As Dundee’s Watchdog I wanted to find out why some people wanted to keep Republic and report this to Dundee citizens on my website: www.dundeewatchdog.com This is the report, facts, and my comments: Is Republic so good that making a statement: “People do not like change” will convince anyone to stay with them? I would say, “No, I would like to change when I am personally saving $ 300 on my trash bill. When it comes to saving money people change all the time. They are willing to pay a higher price for better service, but it is a “no brainer” when one can pay less and get the same or better service. Each trash company who presented a bid was qualified to pick up our trash. The company who will save our homeowners and the Town of Dundee$ 100,000 a year or $ 500,000 in 5 years is Trash Taxi ; in addition, the residents price will be permanent for a period of five (5) years! Republic has the option to increase their price each year; that is exactly what they were trying to do that impressed Commissioner Steve Glenn to call for other bids. Trash Taxi was the low bidder and it is my opinion from talking with the city of Ft. Meade Trash Taxi will have less complaints. Also, Saddlebag Lake Owner Association did not mention one complaint against Trash Taxi. No adverse reports from one and minimum complaints from the city of Fort Meade. Republic almost has a monopoly in Polk County in Trash business. It seems they felt they could raise their prices and Dundee Commission would go along with the increase without much opposition; however, that was not the case. Commissioner Steve Glenn asks some pointed questions that Republic did not give a satisfactory answer to; “people don’t like to change” did not go over well. Commissioner Glenn was also concerned that the Town of Dundee was not getting any funds for recycling and Republic was keeping all the money; the citizens of Dundee were being used but not compensated by Republic. Consumer Complaints & Reviews Here is a complaint against Republic Trash Susan of Shelbyville, MI on June 3, 2014 Satisfaction Rating1/5 I have experienced multiple problems with this company over the years but remained loyal thinking they would work out their issues. This month was the last straw. They stopped picking up my yard waste bin without warning, no courtesy pick up with a note for me to call their office to remind them to send me my bill. (something they should KNOW TO DO) My yard bin in the meantime got full as one would expect. I called them again and confirmed there was nothing owed on my account and to ask why they still were not picking up my trash. They said they had truck problems and that they were running behind, then when they finally got here a couple days later they still didn't pick up my yard trash bin because they said it was too heavy now and that I need to go out and empty it into bags. Well, I am an older person, I explained that the reason it is heavy is because they do not pick it up each week like they are supposed to because that is what I pay them to do. Their customer service rep was so rude and expected me to shore up for their short fall. I dropped them today, told them to get their containers off my property and after over 25 years of being a loyal customer I have to ask myself why? They DO NOT DESERVE TO HAVE ANY CUSTOMERS! I will be going down my street and get the rest of my neighbors to switch trash providers if I can because REPUBLIC WASTE SERVICES/ALLIED WASTE SERVICES YOU STINK AND YOU PUT OUR FINE NEIGHBORHOOD INTO A HEALTH HAZARD CONDITION!!!!!!!!!!! I am thrilled and like to change trash venders. It is my sincere belief that Trash Taxi is the better choice and I enjoy saving money; $500,000 savings on our trash bill during the next 5 years for the people of Dundee is great. With this policy of bidding for jobs no vender will be complacent that his contract will be automatically approved by Dundee Town Council. Is the “good ole boy” policy dead in Dundee? Well, this is another subject that I will continue to explore on my website… I have questions for those who want to keep Republic: 1. Why do you want to spend an extra $ 100,000 annually or $500,000 during the next 5years to Republic? 2. Is this the reason the Town of Dundee is in such bad financial condition due to this kind of thinking? 3. Trash Taxi’s fees to homeowners are set with no increase for 5 years; why do you want to give Republic the option to increase your price every year?
