I have read recently about the new garbage rules regarding the new recycling bin and the rate increase but i would also like to alert you to the fact that at the same time the Pleasanton garbage increased the homeowners rates they DOUBLED contractors fees! DOUBLED for examble if it was $70.00 to dumb a Pleasanton customers demolition for a remodel project it is now $140.00! How can this be? I contacted the garbage company directly thinking it was a mistake during our economy's downturn and was informed that "no it was not a mistake and there was no way around it." I inquired that if the contractor was based in Pleasanton and was working in Pleasanton couldnt there be some kind of lower fee? I was told "no, creative thought, but no." I was told by Sandy the employee that answererd the phone, that she had spoke to Bob, the owner and "the price stays." Construction has been one of the hardest hit industries and the Pleasanton garbage company and it's owner does not care, this is extortion in Pleasanton. I also object to them slipping in this double higher price while everyone is focased on their residential price increase. For anyone remodeling we will also take a hit but so will the homeowner. Unbelievable!!!
