The Consequences of Not Knowing a Waste Disposal Contract Renewal Date
The waste disposal contract renewal date is crucial if you’ve signed a waste disposal contract, and you should always know exactly what that date is. If you don’t, and if your waste disposal contract automatically renews, it could end up costing you and your team a great deal of time and money. Whichever way you look at it, losing track of the waste disposal renewal date is never a positive thing, especially if you are tied to a bad service. We don’t recommend you to sign a long-term contract that may include hidden fees as well.
Renewal terms are common in waste disposal contracts, and the industry strives to ensure that customers receive fair treatment. You have to be aware of your contract renewal rights when you have a waste disposal contract. The contract has terms and conditions on how services will be provided under a certain period of time. A waste disposal contract offers services over a specified term, such as years. In some cases, the service provider may try to change your contractual term or even increase prices after the time period has lapsed. This is where knowledge about renewal terms comes into play.
Many companies do not understand the importance of reading their contracts. If you are paying by the month, knowing when your contract expires and whether you wish to renew with the same company or find a new one is essential. The cancellation window is usually between 90-120 days before a contract renews. The customer must cancel by a registered letter within those days. But it is not necessarily the date the contract is signed. It is based on the date the service began. This makes canceling confusing and complicated. In this case, the waste disposal company will automatically renew for up to five-year increments unless we notify them with written notice 90-120 days before the anniversary of the service commencement. Failure to do so will create a situation where we will be automatically bound to a contract term of years longer than we want.
Additionally, suppose you do not feel that you will utilize the service for an entire year. In that case, this may be an excellent opportunity to negotiate a better price or, best case scenario, switch to renting dumpsters on an as agreement basis.
There are numerous reasons why it is so crucial that you know and remember your waste disposal contract renewal date. If you don’t, and your contract automatically renews, too many things can go wrong, and they could cost you service, money, and time. Let us walk you through some of these reasons for you to understand why it is more essential than ever to make sure that you know your contract renewal date (and, more importantly – when it occurs).
Numerous legal issues arise when trying to terminate a contract. The most important thing to remember is that if you’re party to an automatic renewal, this means that the current contract automatically renews upon expiration for another term based on the same terms and conditions unless otherwise agreed upon by both parties. We suggest reading the terms of the contract carefully to determine your rights and obligations regarding your right to terminate the contract and get out of it before its renewal date.
A “Contract” is a set of obligations and terms defined by a legal document. It is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties, defining what is expected from each party. This is usually present before any business transaction takes place. For example, with waste disposal companies, clients sign contracts stating the terms and conditions of the waste disposal services. These contracts are often long, complicated, confusing, and vague.
