You're welcome to come to town and see for yourself. The big company owns the landfill. You're welcome to go out there and ask the employees that are left.

It's not low balling, when your rates nearly double in 3 years and someone comes in under that with a reasonable rate, that's just under your inflated rate. The rates were artificially inflated because they thought they had a monopoly with owning the pickup service and the landfill.

You absolutely will not ever see anything any other way, than your own.
