Our client who operates in the environmental and industrial waste sector had completed a job where they were instructed to remove waste from a building site comprising of heavy mixed waste. The waste was collected and removed, being signed off by the site manager. The MD of the construction company later refused to pay for the waste removal invoice on the grounds that he was ‘surprised about the cost’ – the cost of the waste removal was in-line with the pricing structure of our client and relative to the amount of waste collected, removed and signed off by the site manager. Communications between the two sides broke down and Sterling were asked to collect.
Sterling have collected the full invoice value, late fees and interest within 4 weeks without the need for legal action.
