Well, let's see here..the father was forced to step down because of all the fraud and trouble he got in to...who knows what other sorts of things they were doing. And now they have that idiot of a son running the company. He is too busy dealing with 3 different baby mamas and is juggling 3 kids, of who were all born the same year. If he would stop pimpen himself out and focus on running a business things might be better. It's NO WONDER that company is a mess.

First my photo is how they left my trash can. The mat supposedly got hung up on the dumpster.I called the California City and Tehachapi office to see what the deal is. Cal City said that they spoke to the driver and the driver said it got hung up so he left it like that. That I should cut it up so it doesnt get "hung up" on the dumpster. The mat folds up and was put in the dumpster folded up. Tehachapi office said if thats what Cal City said that is what needs to be done. The "Corporate" office apparently doesnt care. Are the dumpster made so things get hung up on them? I did not over fill my dumpster I do not put objects in the dumpster that are higher than the sides. All I wanted was for them to come back and dump my trash. This dumpster is located at a business and trash hanging out of the side of the dumpster is a disgrace. In fact, the only reason I knew it was hanging out was because as one of my clients came into my office they informed me there was trash hanging out. If this was a city dumpster I doubt they would have left it like that. I know why nobody cares and that is because benz is the only trash service in the area. I would pay five times the price if Waste Management was avaliable.The guy could have atleast put it back in the dumpster.

I came home from my holiday excursion to find that I no longer have a trash can!!! Someone actually took it from my front porch. My neighbor's cans are gone too. Don't know what happened. Tried to call Benz but I get an "error" message. I guess it's disconnected. Bummer... Got a lot of trash..... Preparing to move... couldn't have come at a worse time!!!

I have been a customer of Benz in Ridgecrest for at least 20 years. For the first many years, we could put out up to 6 receptacles--any kind--every week for about $9/month. Then they got automated, and we could only put out the one small can they provided, which we had to 'rent' from them, for about $11/month. Last year, they made a bizarre pact with the city, and delivered a HUGE black can for recyclables, to EVERY property in the city regardless of whether or not anyone lived there, and the price became $30/month.
#1 - there's no excuse for it to cost so much. Benz makes a fortune selling the recyclables; they have a captive audience--every single property in town, not just the homes and businesses who volunteered to use their services before--so they have 1000s more customers than before, paying more than twice as much as before.
#2 - for a year, they charged the city for people THEY claimed hadn't paid their bills, and the city paid them! Twice, they made the city pay my bill, when I had absolute proof I had already paid it.
#3 - I pay my bill automatically, from my checking account, using the local credit union's BillPayer system. So I have absolute proof the checks were sent, in the correct amount, well before each due date. Two months ago, they claimed they didn't get the payment. But the city was tired of their shenanigans, and refused to pay the bill. So last week, Benz came and took my two trash cans away.
#4 - I've called and left several messages, but 'Susan', who is supposedly the only one who can respond to complaints, is never in.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has experienced this frustration. Sign me: disgusted in Ridgecrest.

I have been with Benz for many years and have always had good service. I have had to watch the billing closely. For instance if you live in Tehachapi check your billing for it being included for California City. The price was 50 cents higher. I wondered how many others have had this experience and never took notice. Then when the driver comes back he thinks I am one who does not watch what is going on. I remember being billed in AUGUST for over ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS. This was accumulated usage charges over time. Two months of billing. It is just my wife and I so I made a call and they did investigate. Thankfully they again found a clerical error and also realized it was JULY & AUGUST. So every time I have had a problem with billing they have resolved the issue. They are always courteous and respectful. DO YOU CHECK YOUR BILLING? I will stay with Benz, since they do provide a service, I have used their septic pumping also and the guys were great, they even worked harder than needed.

I have not been a customer of benz sanitation for nearly a year and I get a bill in the mail for $60, because somehow I owe them a trash can. I tried to call and they wont answer the phone. I am going to take this matter to the legal office on Edwards and hopefully they can solve the issue. I will keep you posted.

My regular day is Friday. Saw the truck drive by the opposite side of the street. Never came and picked up our trash on my side. Missed at least 5 homes in a row, of which I was right in the middle. I've lived in, and had relatives in Tehachapi nearly my entire life, and everyone has had problems with Benz.

I've been calling them over and over with no answer. This company has terrible customer service, always has. Now my trash can is overflowing. What now BENZ?

Unfortunately we have no other trash service company so we are stuck with this crappy service.

I have lived in Tehachapi for nearly twenty years. I moved my family here because of my work. I have used Benz for over 13 years now. Recently someone very close to me fell extremely ill while I was building a new home here in Tehachapi. I was on the verge of losing my dream home due to medical bills.
Benz Sanitation treated my ordeal on a personal level and while I am not one to accept charity, I am ever greatful for the service and understanding Benz staff gave to me. Never once have I had an issue that this company has not attended to, and I cant say that about most others I have to deal with.

Thank you for not treating me like a number, and thank you for your contributions to this great community.

I had service with Benz Propane for over a year. The tank had been sitting empty for close to 2 years but they never checked to make sure it was going to hold pressure. I called every month asking them to check to see why I was using so much gas and all I got in return was "we don't do that". When I finally changed to another company, they found a large hole in the lines going to the house.

Now Benz is charging me $250 to remove a tank that was already there when I moved in. Why? And if they had provided service when I asked for it I would not have replaced it.

The girls I have spoke to over the phone in Tehachapi and Cal City have been extremely rude and say the same thing, ??Its company policy?. What??s happen to ??Customer Service?? Shame on you Benz, shame on you.

And when this valley gets another company in here to take care of trash removable, it will put your sorry a$$ out of business.

They are the worse company I have ever dealt with. They continuely raise the price. I requested the delivery for butane on a specified day as i had people at the house. Originally they said they would lite the pilot for free. Then when requestd. they said it would cost $85. I had to pay more to have them come out, before there regular day, but when requested a day they wouldn't comply. I have requested a copy of an invoice & can not get that from them!
Thhe worse company i have ever dealt with. They are crooks!

In 2007 we changed services to Suburban Propane because of the poor services of Benz which we had put up with for 5 yrs. They are suppose to PICK-UP the trash, NOT drop trash bins and leave it there for the wind to blow trash everywhere! Also, when they fill propane in tanks, they need to tell their drivers to be courteous of the owner's property. We have had a driver smash our flowers with his propane hose and walked all over our newly planted sod. Then, they told us that we needed a new regulator for an extra $85 when it was not necessary! We were DONE. Thank goodness there are other choices out there.

Wednesday, January 13th, 11am. Just realized our trash can blew over this morning in the wind and rain. Not typically home, but just happened to be today. Ran out to upright it and saw the trash truck turning out of our neighborhood. Tried waving them down without success. Immediately called Benz. Was told that if the driver was no longer in my neighborhood that I would have to pay $10 to have them come back. The truck is in Tehachapi already. We religiously pay our bill on time every month. Is that any way to treat a good customer?!
Just last week our can didn't empty completely. I called Benz and left a message. A woman called me back and politely scheduled a Friday pick up for me, NO CHARGE!! But because my can tipped over I get charged $10 if I want my trash picked up - a service I really already payed for. There's something wrong here.

If you cry babies think Benz is bad you need to do business with WASTE MANAGEMENT! they are the biggest crooks you have ever seen, Benz has not been any problem at all! All their billing is right on the money, Wm billing is so jacked up their is no way to keep it straight! miss a pick up day with WM and you don't get a credit or the trash picked up without paying 25 bucks! Benz is the last hold not to sell to Waste Management! if they sell out then you will see what real crappy billing and service is!! so quit crying and count your blessings you don't have WASTE MANAGEMENT!!

Benz, what a joke of a company.

We (unfortunately) use Benz Sanitation for the removal of our garbage. I too have had issues with them not re-scheduling their pick up after a missed trash day pickup. In fact, one time we did not get serviced for 4 weeks! We called them and they said it was to be picked up on our next route, but nothing...so we asked for a credit for those missed pickups. They refused. We began to explain to them that our monthly fee was for an average of 4 pickups per month. If we dont receive those pickups, then why should we pay? No service no money. We had to go back and forth for several months and they FINALLY gave us a credit. But come on people, lets get real here. In these times of our economy, we are forced to deal with these idiots. Its a waste of our money because we are not maximizing cost with service.

The worst part of it all is the fact that for SOME odd reason, Benz was awarded a 25 year contract to service the Tehachapi area by the County. Talk about nepatism at play. Who's uncle or cousin works for the County? There are honest hard working sanitation companies who would love to have a shot at servicing our city, but cant because someone is in bed with Benz. How can the County award such a long contract? You know Benz is not the cheapest, and they dont give good service, so how can they get the contract? Usual bidding protocol calls for the award to go to the company who provides the BEST service with an economical price. I say we sign a petition to oust these idiots from Tehachapi and award the service contract to a company like Sim Sanitation, or ever Waste Management out of LA County.

Benz is a joke of a company, all around a joke!

Kristen B --- How dare you tell customers how to respond to poor service!

I don't appreciate business people only "trying" to do their best. Would you say the same of your doctor? children's teacher? school bus driver? How about your mechanic? How about the checker at the grocery store.... well she "tried" to not continually overcharge. How about a restaurant cook... well he "tried" to get that meat up to temperature, but sadly failed and now you have diarrhea all night.

We live in a world where business people need to SATISFY their customers, not just try. They should take these reviews to heart and "try" to fix it. That is how businesses get BETTER and get GREAT reputations. Many, many businesses actually WANT the customer's input so they can improve. It is a business and they should be giving our community GREAT service..

They should be addressing their customer's concerns. I don't believe they are "trying" to do their best, I think they know we have no choice and they take advantage of that by doing as they please. When trash is sitting out at the curb for days with crows picking it up and carrying it to neighboring houses and winds blowing it all over leaving our streets looking like a ghetto - and our neighborhoods VERY UNSANITARY - well, "trying" to do their best seems a little empty.

Maybe Benz should actually NOTIFY their customers when they are diverting service, not just leave us guessing. How about they IMPROVE SERVICE instead of whining that they get a bad review by people who don't appreciate their idea of "trying." Good luck to anyone whose idea of business is they're "trying"... lol..

***Original review***

I get Friday p/u too. We always lose out on service because of all the holidays and sometimes our trash sits out at the road for days. I think Benz costs too much and the service/communications from them is horrid.... but what choice is there?

btw, I like the lady trash truck driver. she is so friendly and seems to really like her job... it's the office and business that needs to work on their service.

I live in Rosamond and Benz does the trash pick-up here. Ordinarily, everything goes smoothly, except for last week. Our regular pick-up day each week is Friday, which was a holiday last week. Many residents in the mobile home park where I live (including me) put out the trash receptacles "just in case" pick-up still occurred even though it was the Fourth of July. As expected though, no pick-up occurred. It is now Sunday, and the trash barrels are still full. No notice was sent out from Benz saying when the alternate pick-up day would be and of course nobody can get in touch with Benz until tomorrow. I simply CANNOT wait until the next regularly scheduled day and I don't expect to HAVE to. I pay for a service and I expect that service to occur. My trash barrel is FULL every single week. I now have a full trash barrel and three full bags of trash sitting around my house waiting for my barrel to be emptied.

Benz Sanitation basically extorted money from me using my credit rating as ransom!
Since I no longer live in Ridgecrest Ca, it made it pretty easy for this unsavory company to take advantage of me.
Here is the short version of events.
My Uncle passed two years ago. I had to come to town to take care of his home and possessions. I needed to do clean up at his residence.
I personally went to Benz Sanitation and made arrangements for a dumpster. I told them that I lived in CT and would be in town for 9 days only. They said I could have a dumpster for 30 days for a set price. I again told them I would only be in town 9 days.
I said I wanted to pay up-front. I did just that and told them I would call when I was leaving town. I did that as well.
Several months go by and out of the blue I receive a bill from Benz Sanitation tells me I owe an additional $100.00. I immediately called from my home in Connecticut and was told that this was an error.
Now, fast-forward 14 months. Now I receive a collection notice threatening that this was my ??final? notice and that my credit would ??seriously? compromised if I didn??t pay. They have now added all kinds of billing charges. Of course, I immediately called and was referred to collections. The woman I spoke with was basically unconcerned with the facts and my plight. She basically told me to pay up ??or else? She had formulated some story of why I owed this money. I told her to run a credit report on me as a character witness and then she would know that I have never been late on any account. She didn??t care; just ??pay up? or basically we will ruin your credit rating. I asked, ??how could this be a final notice when I had never received anything previously.? She replied, ??oh you have been billed every month.? And again did not seem to care to hear the truth. I had her speak with my partner you receives all the mail in my home and handles the actual bill paying. My partner supported everything I had been telling her and still?. Nothing but ??pay up?
I finally said, fine you and I both know that this is blackmail and this is not my bill but in ??good faith? I will pay it just to protect my perfect credit rating. In the meantime, I would like copies of all these supposed transactions: she agreed that she would send them to me. Now a month later, you guessed it, nothing. How does this company get away with this kind of extortion?
So, BEWARE!

A few years ago my husband and I built a home. Benz Sanitation not only took care of the trash at our construction site, but also provided our workers with a portable toilet. Their service was outstanding. Their employees were professional and friendly. They made the construction of our home a little bit easier.

Each week Benz Sanitation and the Benz group travel throughout the community of Tehachapi to pickup the many cans of waste and I must say they do a superb job.

Can't say I have any problems with this company. Keep up the awesome work!
