    I had waste management for years but I change because they were ripping me off and many times passed right by my full trash can. I don’t think I have any receipts because it was 4 years ago. But I’m sure waste management has them on record. Can I still enter the lawsuit?

  19. Peggy Cameron says:

    This energy recovery fee just showed up on my bill again, hasn’t been on there for months. Was this fee supposed to cease as a result of the lawsuit?

    ADMIN – Hi Peggy,

    I believe the fees were deemed excessive and unlawful. If they revised the amount to be aligned with what the law requires they should be able to charge it.

  20. Bobby says:

    We are trying to get away from them and we still have 1 year and 5 months and we have been with them sense 2006. We just found out they are ripping us off. They have a contract that automatic re ups to three years. We are paying $1150 a month and because they are going up $190,thats the reason we stared looking. We found we can get it for $190 a month for the same service, so my question is if i have these charges can i get out of my contract??

    ADMIN – Hi Bobby,

    I don’t think you can but you can always consult with a lawyer. Just because there is a cheaper service it does not mean a vendor is violating contractual terms.

  21. Joan Blatt says:

    I have not heard from anyone about this & want to know if it is time to file it under closed. Has the WCA Class Action Settlement been resolved or is still continuing?

    ADMIN – Hi Joan,

    You may no longer file. The settlement has not been completed.

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi, Bruce. Sorry to hear that. However, since we are only a newspaper of class action settlements, we have no direct connection to the cases we report about. It’s up to our subscribers to follow up directly with their respective claims/settlement administrators. Hope you eventually got in touch with the settlement admin.
