“Hidden Fees” on Dumpster Rentals in Jacksonville

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book when it comes to showing you a “low price” for a dumpster rental. Remember knowledge is power and saving money is just like making money. That’s the reason for this report.

Franchise Fees: In some areas of town there is a mandatory franchise fee that goes to the local government. Franchise fees are how the local government makes up for the loss of “city revenue” by letting the private sector handle the commercial waste removal. You can read about this fee in more detail here. http://www.hinkleycenter.com/publications/franchise_fees_00-06.pdf.

Since this isn’t “profit” for the hauler, some “less than forthcoming” sales reps will conveniently leave this “fee” out of their low ball offer just to get your business and you don’t see it until you get the final bill. They’d rather “beg for forgiveness than ask for permission” if you know what I mean.

 

Fuel and Environmental Fees: Most all haulers will be charging a fuel and environmental fee to your final bill to offset the continued increase in non-controllable changing environmental regulations costs like landfill cover material, engineering, environmental testing and maintenance of environmental systems. The Fuel Fee element may vary as the indexed price of fuel varies.  Once again, since these fees are not “profit”, but fees, some hauler’s sales reps will “conveniently” forget to mention them.  But just because they are not profit to the company doesn’t mean they’re not an expense to you and should be factored in when you’re figuring your budget for your dumpster rental project.

Make sure to ask what these are and if they apply to you. Don’t be a victim, be victorious and get a great deal on your next dumpster rental in Jacksonville Fl and the surrounding area.
