How many of you guys are charging an environmental fee. It's basically a charge(5-10%) that you add on the the job to insure you sure you using safe chemicals ?

Dudes will come up with all kids of "fees" to justify the service in their own mind... Sanitation fee, deodorizer fee, 3rd floor fee, fuel sur charge fee, and so on... Pretty soon the customer is gonna want to kick you in the nuts....

Pig fee... that's one I'd love to use sometime on some of my customers who live like their pink brethren.

Don't listen to them.... I think it's not a bad idea... The name of the surcharge needs work .....maybe.....I know!...call it , "I'm too stupid to think of a way to build value in my service fee...." ;)
