A** hole! How can they do this??? *EDIT*

I will try to keep this short. So we moved into our house last month and we just got our first garbage bill. There is an "extra" charge for $40 and the reason is listed as "Chair" Uh, we did not throw out a chair! The only thing we can think of is our ex landlord threw out the chair that was his, that HE left in his house when we rented it.  I cannot for the life of me understand why the garbage company would charge US since the garbage bill was always in HIS name and we just paid it. (the garbage company told us that they couldnt change the name on the bill or the owner of the houses name)  My ex landlord had to have given the garbage company our new address and name...which wouldnt surprise me with the other stuff that we are dealing with (another story). But I dont see how a garbage company can charge someone else for a house that they were not being billed for! 

Just for clarification we started up garbage service with the same company at our new address. They added the chair to our new bill!This would be the first time we have been this garbage companies customers since the bill was always in our LL name.  So our LL must have given them the info on where we were living and who to bill. I dont see how they can bill us when it wasnt in our name and we werent living there at the time. It was dated 11/10. Our last day was 10/31

Call the company and ask them what the charge is for.

Is the bill in your name or his name? If its in your name then I would contact the company and tell them you never opened an account in your name. Ask how the person how someone can open an account in your name without you being there. My husband and I have always had to go in person to open a waterbill/garbage bill.
