Below is a letter from my dad regarding his experience with PHS Wastetech:
I have been running a small newsagent in Harlow, Essex for the last 20 years, times are tough and I just about put food on the table for my family working 12 hours a day 7 days a week with one day off a year for Christmas.
In all my years in business I have never dealt with a company like PHS wastetech. I signed a 3 year contract with this company in July 2009 i was paying £35.58 a month which I thought was very reasonable. Within a few months the monthly costs start rising to where It went up to £167.24 a month I was really struggling to pay this. Not to mention the yearly landfill charges of nearly £300!!
2 months before the end of my contract after nearly 3 years of hell, I called them to say I no longer want to continue and wish to leave after the term of my contract was up. This is where the harassment started I was told aggressively that I can't leave that it was a rolling contract. I kept getting calls offering reduction in price and to sign up to another 3 years. I sent the countless emails and letters to ask them that I did not want to renew the contract.
They just would not listen, after my contract expired I signed a 1 year contract with another waste collection agency, but the harassment did not stop from PHS wastech, they sent me another letter stating that they have received my letter and my contract will expire in 2015!! They said they will take me to court if I leave before then.
This issue has really got me depressed I work on my own in the shop and just about make ends meet.
Please if you are thinking about using this company stay clear I wish I only read these reviews and did a bit of research before I went with these crooks. Really 1 star is too much there needs to be a lower rating just for them.
I'm not sure what will happen now but will see, "what goes around comes around" I guess.
