Garbage Hauler: Advanced Disposal Services

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I moved in to this home last October and have been paying every garbage bill. The issue is that the garbage bill comes in a different name instead of my name and it continues to come in a different name even though I have contacted my garbage pickup service provider to change the name on the bill. There seems to be garbage two accounts for this home and I have consistently been paying to one of them. This is not the first time I got a hearing notice. The previous one couldn't be resolved due to Covid-19 and courthouse being closed

Staff Comments: Hauler confirmed that there is only one account for this property. Staff records show that the hauler update sent on 12/26/2019 has a work order to change the name on the account to the current property owner. Therefore staff recommends removing the late fees and reducing the assessment to $99.43. Staff has also requested that the hauler credit the account for any late fees generated in Q1 2020 & Q2 2020.
