A family-owned waste management company in Las Vegas is taking on the powerful Republic Services in court.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Simple Environmental Services Group filed a lawsuit against Republic Services, alleging that the trash pickup service has been trying to push them out of business by charging a premium to use the only landfill in the Las Vegas area – which Republic happens to own.

Republic Services has an exclusive franchise agreement with all municipalities in Southern Nevada.

Simple ESG manages commercial clients – but has to use Republic to collect their trash. Republic Services filed a complaint against Simple ESG in February, alleging that Simple ESG owes Republic money.
