Milton terminates Allegiance waste hauler permit

The Milton City Council has terminated the permit of Allegiance Sanitation as a city waste hauler, and its customers in the North Fulton municipality will have to find a new trash company by Jan. 1, officials announced.

Allegiance’s permit was pulled due to three areas of noncompliance with city ordinances: nonpayment of fees, failure to submit the required proof of insurance, and failure to submit the required provider affidavit, according to Milton Finance Director Bernadette Harvill.

Allegiance is six quarters behind on its fee payments to the city; it last made a payment in June 2017 for collections through March of that year, and the company has a history of late payments, Harvill said.

She also cited customer complaints received by the city since June 2017, alleging “unpredictable pick up; cancellation fees not previously disclosed to the customer; failure to complete final service dates; and refusal to pick up trash bins upon cancellation by the customer.”
