Garbage Hauler: Waste Management
Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they have always paid their garbage bill on time. Their Quarter 3 2022 invoice was paid with a check for $62.26 that was cashed on 8/26/2022 by Waste Management. Therefore they believe that they should not have received an assessment for Quarter 3 2022.
Staff Comments: Hauler records show that there was a payment for $62.26 that was cashed on 8/26/2022 but was not applied to the account until 10/14/2022. This was due to the fact that the payment was hung up in unidentified cash because Waste Management was not sure where to apply the payment. It appears as though the property owner sent their payment to the P.O Box 42390, Phoenix, AZ 85080 instead of the correct mailing address listed on the invoice as P.O. Box 4647, Carol Stream, IL 60197-4647. Since the payment was applied to the account in 10/14/2022, it would have used to pay the October - December 2022 garbage invoice. There was also a payment applied to the account on 10/18/2022 for $62.26, which was added as a credit to the account. Therefore, we cannot remove the assessment in full. However, since there was a delay in applying the payment to the account, we do recommend removing all three late fees of $2.96. This would reduce the assessment to $59.30.
