now not only have the bills tripled but they are charging to open a gate, and charging over $380 a month for distance charges. I just don't get it. We have given these companies a monopoly to do whatever they want.

I have no recourse regarding poor service.

I own a building 3 buildings on Saticoy Street. My trash bill before the monopoly was $1,253 and after the implementation, my trash bill is $1903. 50% INCREASE!

The service has been so sporadic since it changed to a different company

Streets not getting cleaned, trash bins stay out all the time, CHAOS reigns. Why are these monopolies allowed to add fees upon fees. I had mountains of trash piled up even though I had contracted services.

I had ..._____________ I called ____________ yearly for a quote to make sure my bill was competitive. I'm now forced to go with _________ 77% increase. I will have to raise rents to pay for this.

This has lead us to serious consider withdrawing from providing multifamily housing as we are being sqeezed out of the market and unable to pass costs onto the tenants.

I was paying for four days a week of pickup with ___________ in Sylmar, but they were not picking up the fourth day and I had been paying for that fourth day of pickup for the past 4 months before I called __________ and adjusted the pickups to 3 times.

__________ Trash reps lied to us and said the 300% increase in our bill was the lowest possible option. After weeks of calling my city council and Bureau of Sanitation I was told that we should have never been charged "access" fees and others.

The new charge to OPEN the gate to get the trash bin is downright ridiculous. On one small property with a $400 trash bill that turned into an $800 trash bill we are paying an additional $150 just to have them open the gate.

my favorite. at our echo park apt, six units, the bill went from under $100 a month to the standard 233. when i called to ask about this i was told we would alos have to pay a distance charge though the can was 65 feet from the street. oops. their bad

Absolutely terrible, people need to lose their jobs over this. double billed us after giant price hikes. didn't pick up trash, lost tenants, had to dispose of trash ourselves. could not talk to customer service they would hang up on us and ignore contact

They never come as often as we pay for. They over charge and they charge for access fees and distance when they shouldn’t!

Our bill has increased from $92/mo to over $220/mo. Service is horrible, many no pick-ups, impossible to get through by phone. Totally unfair and unbelievably stressful experience. We are small business owners and can't afford to pay these outrageous fees

The trash was not collected at several of the apartment buildings I manage. The bill keeps getting sent to the wrong address. The service has been discontinued because the bill was sent to the wrong address. I don’t understand how I have all these problem

Missed trash pick ups on multiple occasions.

Delays for weeks, tripled charges... leaving a mess...

How this project got the greenlight without any public vote is not the way an American city should run. Giving building owners no alternatives with regard to trash collection is tantamount to, yes, I'll say it, 'collusion' with the unions.

At apartment building, our trash pick up costs have doubled since __________ took over - and our services has been much more unreliable than with our former disposal company.

In additioin the recycling penalty fees are $50-$100.. if my tenants don't follow the recycling rules, the landlord pays the penalty fees. I have no control of my tenants trash habits, the neighborhood and homeless people use my trash/recycling bins

We have 8 unit building, and three containers, 2yrd and two recycles. We had to install metal gate as homeless encampment was nearby. Suddently the City started charging us $12 per each container for using the keys. Our bill increased by 30%.

In addition to the increase in service costs. Our pest control bills have gone up because of missed service dates resulting in waste piling up for nearly 2 weeks at a time.

Our small business is being forced to use __________Services. No pickups for months but the bills (3 times higher than the previous vendor) keep coming in. Sent multiple emails, letters and calls including City of LA to no avail. So frustrating!

Astronomical price increases with ridiculous charges. We dont even get our trash picked up regularly. We have to call multiple times to get them to come out. They leave our trash bins out on the street and we need to call them to bring it back garage.

I have owned my 18 unit apartment building in the WEHO area of LA since 1973. __________ has been providing the refuse pick-up at my building for several years.  My monthly bill has gone form $165/month in January 2017 to $493/month in December 2017.
I live in a 6 unit building and our bill tripled with the change over!

I manage multiple properties - approx 15 - and am frustrated by the crazy increased costs, plus the minimal service compared to what I used to have.

I own an 8 unit rent controlled apartment complex and do not have much cushioning as it is. My trash bill has tripled and service has been spotty since the ordinance came into effect.

I'm a current building owner of 6 units in North Hollywood. I can't believe when __________ told me they are raising my trash bill by double and nothing is really changing besides them placing a recycle bin which most tenants don't even use. ridiculous monopoly!!
MIssed pickups for several months in 2017.

My bill has TRIPLED.  And I run a small ranch, utilizing 1 3-yard dumpster emptied 1 time per week.  The price hike is outrageous.  And they're charing me more than 50/wk to press a code to open my gate.  I cannot afford this increase.  We need relief.

My bill is 3x what it was with cordova construction services , I already received a bill for feb and haven't even received trash container

My trash bill has almost doubled from $126 to $207... this increase is ridiculous. I can barely afford to pay. I'm in rent control and my tenants are paying less than half the market rent. In addition the recylcling penalty fees are $50-$100..
My trash bill went way up and quality of service went way down. Why is waste disposal suddenly socialized? How did the trash companies get the city to give them an oligopoly?

No increase in rent control rent to cover increase. I am paying the extra cost.

Only that the bills have almost doubled and now being charged for roll out of bins, it's disgraceful. Prices have escalated yet we are only allowed to increase rents by 3%, which barely covers the costs

Our HOA fees went up for the first time by $30 simply because our trash expenses have more than doubled for poorer service. Our HOA manager spends a lot of her time trying to dispute billing errors for service not provided. More than 2x price for bad work

Our HOA's went up over $30 per month because of the increased trash fees. i am also a business owner and the trash bill at that location more than doubled. This is bad for business!

Our trash bill increased by 30-40%.  All of a sudden we have to pay $12 per click for each container because our containers are in the garage.

Fee per click is nothing but racketeering as we had to keep containers locked to prevent vandalism.

Our trash bills are up 400% and our pick-ups are down 30%.  We have piles of trash and angry tenants.  THANKS L.A. CITY COUNCIL!!!

Our trash service bill went up by 400%

Overflowing dumpsters everywhere!!

Prices have gone up and service is poor.  No one to deal with who really cares.

The bill went from $200, to $270.

The city has created and protects a monopoly so it can collect higher fees that don't appear as taxes.  These monopolistic companies have removed the free market, supply and demand benefits to the public.  All taxpayers are affected.


We are being charged a high "extra" fee just to unlock a gate.

We manage multiple properties and have experienced increases of up to 400% at most. This is for a reduction in service from our previous provider. All of our accounts have experienced missed service dates, and incorrect billing.

We were billed $366/mo. Our charges went up to $614/mo for the exact service when the contract took effect in Feb of 2018.

__________ offered to lower bill by doing a waste assessment. They came in and did their assessment and now they are charging us $900/mo
yes, we have 2 rental buildings where our trash bill went up over $200 a month on each. The bill almost tripled
