Advanced Disposal is deeply committed to ensuring a clean and safe environment for our employees, our customers, and our communities. We consider environmental stewardship of utmost importance and believe that our true business is making the world a cleaner, more beautiful place to live, work and play.
Advanced Disposal is committed to controlling costs and expenses so we can continue to provide you with the best overall value in environmental services. Unfortunately, we cannot fully control fuel and environmental costs. Our fees are not represented to be a direct offset or pass through of Advanced Disposal’s actual costs to service any individual account, but rather, are intended to address Advanced Disposal overall costs.
The fuel and environmental fees are two separate line items on customer invoices.
Unless otherwise provided in your contract, our fuel fee calculation is generally based upon the national weekly average price of diesel fuel as reported by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy ("EIA/DOE") in its Weekly Retail On-Highway Diesel Prices Index. This index is objective, publicly available, and widely recognized in the trucking and transportation industries. Basing our fuel fee upon this index ensures you, our valued customer, will pay a fuel fee that is currently adjusted and easy to calculate.
Unless otherwise provided in your contract, the fuel fee is based on the weekly average diesel prices of the month immediately prior to your invoice date. The Fuel Fee Table cross-references the average diesel price with a corresponding fuel fee percentage. Your fuel fee is calculated by multiplying the appropriate percentage to your total invoice charges, not including other fees and taxes.
The amount of the fuel fee is not represented to be a direct offset or pass through of Advanced Disposal's actual fuel costs to service any individual account, but is intended to address Advanced Disposal's overall costs.
Unless otherwise provided in your contract, the environmental fee is 15.75% of your total invoice charges, not including other fees and taxes, as shown on the invoice, which may change from time-to-time. Contact your local Advanced Disposal service location for further details.
The amount of the environmental fee is not represented to be a direct offset or pass through of Advanced Disposal’s actual environmental costs to service any individual account, but is intended to address Advanced Disposal's overall costs, which may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Tire disposal

NOT A GOVERNMENTAL TAX; FUTURE CHANGES
The fuel and environmental fees are our charges; they are not a tax or surcharge imposed by or remitted to any governmental or regulatory agency. The fuel and environmental fees may be changed at the sole discretion of Advanced Disposal.
