Ongoing Monitoring Success Story
After we assisted in formulating a cost effective waste services agreement for a long standing food services client, we discovered that they were being overcharged by their waste supplier shortly afterwards.
Utility Advocates Inc. recovered approximately $4,000 in overcharges over a 3 month period for the client.
Our recommendations to improve specific service rates with the client’s waste supplier yielded $16,000 per year in projected ongoing savings. In addition, we identified areas of improvements in the terms and conditions of the client’s waste service agreement. After implementation of our recommendations, we discovered that the waste supplier’s billed charges did not correspond with the agreed upon contracted rates. We informed our client of the overcharges and requested a refund from the waste supplier due to the billing errors we discovered.
