**Revealing Real Costs**

An easy example to understand your REAL cost.

For this example, we’ll use the national average cost per month, $525.00, and assume a 6 cubic yard dumpster is picked up 3 times each week.

1) FIRST – LOCATE YOUR COST PER MONTH

Locate your dumpster’s PRICE per month on your bill. The “COST PER CUBIC YARD” is calculated from this cost. It’s usually described like this: “1 – 6 x 3”, meaning one, six-cubic-yard dumpster, picked up three times each week.

2) SECOND – LOCATE NUMBER OF PICKUPS PER WEEK

Next locate how many times __per week__ your
dumpster is supposed to be picked up.

Multiply the number of times per week by the number of weeks per month (in the example, it’s picked up 3 times per week X 4.333 weeks in a month = 13 pickups per month).

3) THIRD – CALCULATE COST PER PICK UP

Now divide the monthly price in Step 1 by the number of pickups per month from Step 2 (Ex.: $525.00 cost per month divided by 13 pick-ups per month = $40.38 per pick up).

4) LAST – CALCULATE COST PER YARD

Divide the cost per pick up (example: $40.38) by the SIZE of your dumpster (example: 6 cubic yards), this gives you the cost per cubic yard ($40.38 / 6 = $6.73) the REAL comparison number.

Now that you know your __cost per cubic yard__, you can
compare REAL pricing with WasteWiser^{TM}’s service information, to be
sure you’re getting a fair market rate.

**Real Cost vs. Real PRICE**

Now, think about this. The example above ASSUMES your FULL dumpster is really picked up 13 times a month.

But what if it’s usually 75% full and only picked up 9 times a month?

You’re still pay $525.00 a month but your cost per dump
jumps from __$40.38 to $77.78__, a ** 92%** increase.

At 75% fullness with 9 pickups, 58.5 cubic yards are REALLY collected instead of the 78 cubic yards you contracted to have picked up.

__YOUR REAL COST PER YARD goes from $6.73 to $12.96__.

That works out to about $3,000.00 a year.

EVERY TIME THEY DON’T PICK UP THEIR MARGINS EXPAND AND YOU GET A PRICE INCREASE.

Remember, these figures are for just your monthly __BASE
COST__. They don’t include: overflow fees ($150.00 each), franchise fees
(10%+), taxes (5%+), junk fees, fuel fees, recycling fees, administrative fees
($5 per invoice), etc.

If you’re not monitoring your dumpster 24/7/365 HOW WILL YOU KNOW what you REALLY pay?
