Fuel & Environmental Fees

Fuel Surcharges

Over the past few years, we have all experienced considerable fuel market instability. Most companies, especially those in the transportation industry, now charge a separate fee that adjusts with fluctuations in the fuel markets.

As a waste hauler, one of our largest costs is diesel fuel. Rather than continually modifying your monthly service rates, we have elected to use a fuel fee based on the fuel prices we pay. It is our intention to do our best to stabilize your service rates. For this reason, we are willing to set up contracted rates that only adjust on an annual basis or when there are large fluctuations in some of our major costs (e.g., landfill, fuel). By having the separate fuel fee, we are able to continue to provide contract service rates and still adjust only for changes to fuel markets that continue to fluctuate throughout the year.
