Sorry about the hassle. But I've heard some bad things about that company. I believe it is a lot of independent franchise owners, so there is no real consistency on the way they do business. When I need stuff picked up, I usually get a neighborhood kid with a truck to come by and take it all. He'll do it for a few bucks. If its stuff that people could use, I list it free on Craigslist and a lot of it will get picked up that way.

around here you would be paying like $40 a load at the dump so that's $200 right there so $500 might be high but I'd do It all day for $300.

Corporate franchises fall back on the company line that they "have to maintain their parent company's pricing structure" but independent operations can adjust price on load type which is flexible depending on the type of materials you are off loading.

I still find it odd, as diyers we have one thing in common. Once in a while we have to hire a pro because we might be over our head with a project. There is one job that every one is qualified to do, no permit required, no failing grade. We should be able to get the junk out or are we just interested in showing off all the pritty new things we have.
