Billing and Service Audits:

We audit residential and commercial customer bills to ensure they reflect approved collection rates and match the level of services provided, including the collection frequency and the size and number of containers serviced. There are many times jurisdictions are just one jurisdiction of many in a hauler’s billing database. We also review the customer’s jurisdiction coding to ensure it is correctly coded.

Contract Compliance Audits:

We evaluate hauler performance records to ensure they provide services to meet your recycling and solid waste service contracts and diversion requirements. If hauler performance does not comply, HF&H offers proven solutions.

Hauler Fee Payment and Tonnage Audits:

We determine the accuracy of franchise fees, AB 939 fees and other solid waste disposal fees based on assessment and hauler information records. We also analyze hauler reports and supporting records to verify the amount of tonnage collected and establish correct diversion rates.

Is Your Hauler’s Non-Compliance Costing Your Agency Money?

A recent HF&H contract compliance audit revealed that the agency’s hauler had misclassified multiple high-volume commercial accounts, leading to consistent underpayment of fees for at least five years. HF&H helped the agency recover the unpaid fee amounts.
