But WM has such great commercials! I guess I'll fork over the 140 something bucks I owe them and make the switch to Tiger. You guys twisted my arm!

Yes, we pay in advance for Tiger. If you're gonna make the switch, don't pay the WM bill.

Ahhh...good to know. I don't want to have garbage men fighting over the privilege to dispose of my discarded materials.

Wanted to, and talked with my friend with the property out west of here; but he felt it would make too much of a mess and I wanted to get that piece of crap out of my garage! Wish I could've, would've worked out some of the anger I have towards Best Buy because of that lousy TV they sold me!

At least I know it was crushed inside a Tiger trash truck!

Cheers! M2

Thanks everyone, we're definitely going to switch.

What was wrong with the TV? It was out of warranty?

Happy New Year everyone!

OK, if everyone wants to talk trash, here goes. I started out with BFI and then switched due to being late many times and price increases. Went to WM as they were cheaper, but they too raised their prices. Finally, I went with Tiger earlier this year with no complaints. When I switched, if you do the math, you're paying more for Tiger, but as everyone says, you can put out all the trash you need. As they say, put a Tiger in your tank, and on your sidewalk!

How do you figure it's more for Tiger? The above poster is reporting invoices of $147 quarterly now. Even if you doubled Tiger's invoice and doubled pickups to "twice a week" to match WM...it would still be only $126. I did the math...

Seems $21/quarter cheaper to me. Like you said...put all the trash out once per week and save even more.

I love trash talking.
