Explanation of Charges

Advanced Disposal’s invoices include various charges and fees (“Charges”). These Charges are the result of various internal and external factors that impact our business and are not represented to be an offset or pass through of Contractor’s actual costs whether taken collectively or with respect to each category, nor are they representative of actual taxes and surcharges imposed by or remitted to a governmental agency. Rather, they are intended to address a portion of Advanced Disposal’s costs on a companywide basis. Such Charges, including the examples below, also reflect the need to achieve an operating margin acceptable to Advanced Disposal.

Environmental Charge.

Advanced Disposal is committed to ensuring a clean and safe environment for our team members, 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. In furtherance of these commitments Advanced Disposal assesses an Environmental Charge as a means to address impacts of various environmental factors associated with such things as site development, construction and maintenance, engineering, permitting and licensing and costs associated with managing and disposing of wastes in an environmentally sound manner. 

Energy Charge.

The Energy Charge is assessed as a percentage of a Customer’s total invoice amount (exclusive of taxes and other Charges) to address direct and indirect energy costs which are subject to volatile and unpredictable fluctuations in market conditions for the energy consumed by our business and operations. The Energy Charge is calculated based on the peak price of diesel fuel during the thirty day period preceding the 15th day of the month of the Customer’s invoice as published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy (EIA/DOE) in its Weekly Retail On-Highway Diesel Price Index. This index is objective, publicly available and widely recognized in the trucking and transportation industries. The Energy Charge Table cross-references the peak diesel price with a corresponding energy charge percentage. The Energy Charge is calculated by multiplying this percentage with the total amount invoiced (not including taxes and other Charges).

Compliance and Business Impact Charge.

Advanced Disposal’s operating locations are faced with extensive oversight and compliance demands along with internal and external initiatives or requirements designed to improve the safety, efficiency, and management of our sites and team members. Advanced Disposal’s operating locations have and will continue to incur rising business impacts that exceed commonly used inflation indices. These factors make typical rate structures less reflective of the financial demands required to provide service at the highest levels of responsibility and stewardship our customers expect. The Compliance and Business Impact Charge is assessed as a percentage of the invoiced amount (exclusive of taxes and other Charges) to help address companywide impacts associated with oversight and compliance as well as internal and external initiatives designed to anticipate and enhance the safety, efficiency and management of Advanced Disposal’s operations.  

Administrative Charge.

The Administrative Charge is assessed to address companywide impacts associated with, by way of example and not limited to, customer billing, collection functions, print mail, lock box services, bank charges, and bad debt. A discounted charge may be applied in some instances for paperless billing and automatic payments.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Energy Charge is assessed as a percentage of a Customer’s total invoice amount (exclusive of taxes and other Charges) to address direct and indirect energy costs which are subject to volatile and unpredictable fluctuations in market conditions for the various ways energy is consumed by our business and operations. The energy charge may vary by customer and location based on negotiated contract terms. The energy charge is not designed nor intended to correlate specifically to the direct costs and expenses of servicing an individual customer’s account, but rather, is intended to address overall direct and indirect energy costs incurred companywide in providing waste management and environmental services to all of Advanced Disposal’s customers while ensuring an operating margin acceptable to Advanced Disposal.

 

Unless otherwise negotiated, the Energy Charge is calculated based on the peak price of diesel fuel during the thirty day period preceding the 15th day of the month of the Customer’s invoice as published by the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy (EIA/DOE) in its Weekly Retail On-Highway Diesel Price Index.  This index is objective, publicly available and widely recognized in the trucking and transportation industries. The Energy Charge Table cross-references the peak diesel price with a corresponding energy charge percentage. The Energy Charge is calculated by multiplying this percentage with the total amount invoiced (not including taxes and other Charges). If Advanced Disposal adjusts the formula, it will update the Energy Charge Table accordingly.  

 

If your energy charge in calculated using the Energy Charge Table, it will vary as the peak price of diesel varies. As a result, your energy charge may increase or decrease on a monthly basis. Advanced Disposal may also adjust the formula for calculating the energy charge from time to time to address energy cost impacts to its business and to maintain or recognize an operating margin acceptable to Advanced Disposal. If this is done, Advanced Disposal will update its Energy Charge Table to reflect the adjustments.

 

The Energy Charge Table includes diesel prices and corresponding percentages at which the energy charge will be determined. So for instance, under the current Energy Charge Table, if the peak price of diesel fuel over the thirty day period preceding the 15th day of the month of your invoice as reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration/Department of Energy (EIA/DOE) Retail On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price Index is $2.35, then your energy charge will be 9.26% of your invoice charges, not including other fees and taxes.

 

Currently, for every penny that the average price of diesel increases above $1.45 as reported on the applicable EIA/DOE Retail On-Highway Diesel Fuel Price Index, the corresponding energy charge on the Energy Charge Table increases by 0.074% above an initial rate of 2.60%.

 

Yes, your energy charge may vary over time. If your energy charge is calculated using the Energy Charge Table, then you should expect to see your energy charge rise and fall as the published diesel prices rise and fall. Advanced Disposal may also adjust the formula for calculating the energy charge from time to time to address energy cost impacts to its business and to maintain or recognize an operating margin acceptable to Advanced Disposal. This can be done by adjusting the percentages reflected on the Energy Charge Table, or in other cases, by adjusting the invoice amounts.
