Hazardious wastes, costly debris

I'm a FNG. I've been a sub for a FAS vendor since feb 2010 (untill Aug last summer when they lost the fannie contract). After a few months in the end there they changed the rules on thier pay rates as far as "hazards" IE paints, electronics, tires, ect....
I'm now a P&P vendor for Safeguard and don't get alot of "trash outs". I just did a convey condition order and have to remove debris along with about 50 gals of paint, electronics (tvs) and some tires. In the old days (a year ago) we billed for each of these hazards, now I don't know how this works. Yes I'm very new to invoicing and only just got over the hump of "credentialing" How do you invoice these items?

1st of all make sure you have all the lic to carry all the items. In state of CA you are only permitted to haul 9 tires at a time. Any more you have to have a TPID number and paper trail. Hazard hauling = alot of paper work for not enough pay imo

Gary,

Last I heard SG bills it by the CYD on the hazards. I know a couple of our companies started this just before we quit. They were saying 27 gallon cans of paints per cyd, oils were the same. Tires were 3 per cyd.

I have a "landfill breakdown" line item sheet that was printed from Waste Management for MN that shows disposal costs....Car tire $5, Car tire w/rim $6, Truck tire $7, Truck w/rim $8, Farm tire $25, Appliances $23 per item, copy machine and electronics $30, Couch $21 per item AND UNACCEPTABLE ITEMS;;;;;::::: used oils, paints, flourescent bulbs, yard waste, batteries, fridges etc etc.

We submitted this list and they would allow us to charge "per item". If you need just shoot an p.m. and I'll email it to you.

Also if anyone in the Twin Cities area needs a list, with phone numbers (names on some), to all the utility providers just let me know and I'll shoot that to you too.

I have gotten them to pay for hazards on the REO side above the typical per CYD, if the hazards are excessive(ex, we did 100 tires from a property).

Haven't had much luck on the P&P side, but we haven't run across any with an excessive amount of hazards either. But they are at HUD rates here, which is higher than their REO pricing.

In some areas of the country, landfills are no longer accepting items such as tvs, electronics. Paint or hazard waste recyclers may be few and far between. Companies like Safeguard tend to give the new guy the bs line of "Sorry, it is considered debris and it pays by the cyd". Yes, bid it, provide copies of county or city regs, the dump fees from your landfill, tire recycler rates, etc. Unless you are willing to do all the legwork and then to stand your ground on it, you'll be eating some high end disposal rates.

For anyone who doesn't know, Best Buy will recycle a lot of electronics for you for free. For larger items they require a purchase, but smaller items, including computers, monitors, and TVs under 32", they take for free. Here's a list: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Global-P...at149900050025

Even systems for breaking down hazards and ping ponging accross town to each drop off site are man hours and overhead that the Regional or National isn't covering the cost of, you are.

I'm not sure if they are national, or not, but Goodwill takes electronics for free for recycling. Around here, they will even give you a receipt for the "donation" for income tax purposes. Best thing is they don't require any purchase and will take any size item working or not. I dropped off a 60" projection tv that was broken while donating some other items. No questions asked and I get the receipts for my accountant.
