Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Republic stated that the Quarter 4 invoice was incorrect due to charging their open market price on a bulky item pick up for two mattress ($51.75 per item) and two box springs instead of the agreed upon price for the coordinated collection program ($35.00 per item). They recommend reducing the assessment by $41.65 to $602.30. This would include a reduced invoice of $467.66 for two 64-gal carts and bulky items, as well as a back bill of $134.64.

This would include $82.85 for the pick up of three bulky items at $20 each (plus tax), $192.85 for two mattresses and two bulky items at $35 each (plus tax), and $192.16 for two 64-gal carts.
