The floating fuel recovery fee is calculated by cross-referencing Taylor Garbage’s FFRF Table with the average monthly diesel price per gallon, as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy Information Administration “Weekly Central Atlantic (PADD 1B) No 2 Diesel Retail Prices
” index. If fuel prices increase, you will see a small percentage adjustment. On the other hand, when fuel prices decrease, you will see a decrease in the fuel recovery fee. The fee is not a tax, surcharge or fee mandated by or remitted to any governmental or regulatory agency. The FFRF is intended to help Taylor Garbage recover both direct and indirect fuel costs associated with the operation of its roll off service, and it includes an amount designed to achieve an acceptable operating margin.
