Rhonda gave me a refund after I had to go somewhere to have them correct her hair cut. Very disappointed and she tried telling me about charging me for an extra conditioner which she never mentioned it being an extra before putting it in. Not cool.
Went in with long dark hair about half way down my back. Asked about going blonde for the summer and assured them ESP. The owner and she told me how they were the place. Well an entire day open till after close they over bleached and made me look like a Pomeranian. I had white roots and oarnge hair. They had me come back few days later to work on more and again over bleached and my hair was ruined and falling out. Had to get it cut about an inch short , they ruined a shirt I was wearing and it took me weeks of begging and complaining to be refunded. PLESE BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's funny what the other review says about Rhonda being so accomplished, she fed me that line and it got me in a terrible spot trusting her and her trophies.
This place offer body massaging and many types of pedicures. They are very clean, friendly and offer student, senior, and military discount. I always get some kind of discount and the service was top notch. Love getting my nails done. Also they have some much colors to choose from. Really digging this nail place!Thanks for making my nails Fabulous! Love Kimberly
My Husband and I have been here twice and they have done an outstanding job. We were glad that they autoclave their tools. It was a very relaxing experience. I think we found out new place! Also they had a lot of gel polish selection. Ray &amp;amp;amp; Barbra Cook
I stop by Lee's nails on saturday and I had a very good experience. They have to be the salon with most shellac colors I have ever seen. My pedicure and manicure was very relaxing and nice. They took their time and the price was very reasonable. I will definitely be back. The staffs also spoke very well english and the place was very clean. Most important it did not smell bad. Would definitely recommend trying!
Best Nail Salon In Town! Lee's is clean and the staff are super friendly. They did an amazing job on my shellac gel manicure. My manicure lasted over two weeks. My pumpkin spa pedicure was the bomb! It was such a wonderful experience. I am so glad I decided to try this place out! The salon also smells very fresh and odor free which is definitely a plus in my book. They are busy so I would recommend making and appointment before coming in on the weekend. Incrediblly happy to found my new nail spot! Give them a try you won't be disappointed!!
The location is great! Located on 29 in front of Keglers. There is no odor when I first walk in and the staff was great. The work also last as well.
My Shellac turn out great! I got it done before the snow blizzard and they still look really good! I believe the owner did my nails and she was very good! Everyone there is really good! I love Lorena for my pedicure. She is so sweet and very attentive to details. Try this place out if you are looking for a clean and friendly enviroment. The salon also doesn't have any of that chemical smell to it either. Which was very nice when I was pregnant and wanted my nails done. Would highly recommend to all my friends and family!
This is one of my favorite places to get my nails done! They all speak English and they are super friendly. The place is clean and odor free. Give them a try!
Four trips and four substandard experiences. The biggest problems seem to be that the details we gave the customer service rep didn't get passed on to the service techs, and the service techs don't take time to actually troubleshoot the problems. This means I have picked up both my vehicles with the issues unresolved.Once I told them of a common problem with the seats thunking on the Ram when I go around curves and hit bumps. First time, the paperwork said only "seat is fine." Then I returned for a ridealong with a service tech and he immediately heard the problem....but didn't try to fix it. They called back and said it was a common problem, though. After this, I talked to the manager and he promised me he'd fix it so I said I'd give them another chance to keep my business. This third time, they said there's a TSB coming out next month and I'd have to bring it back to them a fourth time then.Over a seat. My driver's seat is too complicated to fix in three trips, so it'll take four...and it's not even powered.Same trip yesterday, the "check gas cap" light was on. I wrote down on the key drop envelope that I had replaced the gas cap and it didn't fix the problem...so they tightened the cap, reset the code, and gave me a lesson on how to operate a gas cap...because even after putting on a new gas cap, the most likely problem is that a grown man doesn't know how to operate a gas cap. (I know some customers are idiots, but assuming every customer is one seems like a bad business philosophy.) I said that I had written down for them that this wasn't the problem, and when the light came back on I would take it somewhere that would actually listen to the customer and take the time to actually figure out what the problem is before dismissing it. Today the light came back on, and I'll take it somewhere else.On a different vehicle, I told them the A/C blew hot air intermittently while driving on the interstate. When I picked it up, they had done nothing to resolve the problem, telling me it was because of the auto-shutoff on the new model Cherokee...which only happens when the vehicle is stopped. There were several other issues left unresolved on this trip, too...even though I printed out the problems and left the paper on the seat, because I watched the customer service rep condense a 15 minutes conversation about several issues onto one yellow sticky. Not surprisingly, the summary on the paperwork I got back from the service techs didn't match what we told her...which is probably why the techs didn't fix some of the problems.I currently own four Chrysler vehicles, and this dealership will not see any of them again. I wonder how many hours Chrysler has paid them for warranty work where they didn't even diagnose the problem.
Waste management is more than just a smelly chore. Depending on where you live, it can be complicated and subject to a variety of local laws.
People produce a lot of waste, and proper disposal of that waste is essential for maintaining healthy living environments. Not only is garbage unpleasant to be around, but it also breeds bacteria, attracts pests, and takes up more space than you might imagine. So, governments create rules to properly dispose of it.
There are four main ways the trash gets taken out:
Landfills are by far the most common form of waste disposal. In the year 2013 alone, the U.S. sent 294 million tons of trash to landfills. While many people might think of landfills as simply a hole in the ground filled with trash, they are carefully planned out and expertly constructed structures. They have bottom liners made of either clay or plastic and are covered with soil daily. Landfills are designed to prevent the trash inside from coming in contact with environmental factors, including water and air.
Landfills are different than dumps, which don't attempt to separate the garbage from the surrounding environment. Typically, landfills also have runoff collection ponds, drop-off stations, and a buffer area around the premises. This keeps everything contained and reduces the effects on the environment and community.
Recycling means using existing material to create new products. The goal is to reduce pollution associated with creating new materials and decrease waste going to landfills. A wide range of commonly used products can be recycled, including:
While the U.S. has no national recycling laws, some state and local governments have implemented their own requirements.
Incineration, also called waste-to-energy, involves burning trash, usually to produce electricity for homes or businesses. Though this practice is common in Europe, the U.S. has been hesitant to adopt this method of waste disposal. However, some cities are beginning to embrace the technology. As recycling costs have gone up and participation in recycling efforts have gone down, some cities are turning to incineration for their garbage removal.
Composting refers only to organic substances, like food and paper waste. Composting quickly breaks down matter, and the resulting material can be used for agricultural or landscaping purposes, as it is filled with nutrients that are great for plants.
Garbage is something most people don't want to handle more than they have to. Thankfully, cities arrange for workers to take your trash away for you. But, did you know that there are different types of trash that require different people to handle?
Trash removal refers to the waste collectors who come to your curb or building's dumpster on a weekly basis to remove the trash. This expense might be included in your utility bill, rent payment or another bill every month. However, you might have other options, depending on where you live. If you decide to hire an independent company instead of relying on the city-provided services, you might be able to save a little bit of money. Most trash removal companies charge between $10 and $40 per month, or $140 to $250 per year.
Junk removal handles items you don't want in your home anymore but can't easily dispose of yourself or in your regular trash. These items might include old furniture, tires, or appliances. Pricing generally depends on the scope of the task. For example, hauling away a hot tub will probably be more difficult than doing so for a couch. Therefore, hot tub removal will be more expensive - generally around $130 - than taking away the couch, which might fall closer to $80. However, some cities may have options to have your large items picked up for free. Check with your local waste management department to find out if this is available in your city and how you can arrange it.
If you separate your compostable garbage from your regular trash, you can pay for a company to come around to pick up your yard and food waste. This generally costs around $100.
Some states and cities have specific recycling rules, like Connecticut and San Francisco. If you live in one of these areas, your city might arrange for workers to pick up your recycling in the same way they pick up your garbage. You'll still have to separate everything out, though. Most companies ask you to put paper recycling in one bin, and plastic and glass in another. Some will also give the option to pick up unsorted recycling for a fee. Some recycling may get sticky, but unless there's solid food or debris stuck on, you probably don't have to worry much about residue.
When recycling pizza boxes and other similar items, rules may vary between cities. Find out from your city's recycling or waste management department to find out the rules about pizza boxes. If they do accept them, it's a good idea to scrape all the cheese and fallen toppings away before recycling the box.
Usually, regular recycling removal costs between $5 and $25 per month if you have one paper bin and one plastic and glass bin. If you have more than this, a fee of $2.50 to $7.50 per bin might be tacked on.
Like junk, waste is comprised of items or substances that you can't easily get rid of yourself. However, it's not always the size that makes removal more difficult. Rather, it's the composition. Waste generally refers to items or substances that could be dangerous to people and the environment, like chemicals, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, old latex paint or debris from a construction project. Solid waste removal generally costs around $160; hazardous waste will cost anywhere between $50 and $100, depending on how much it weighs. Construction waste can usually be taken away for about $200.
Before tossing hazardous waste items in the trash, it's best to look into local rules. Some governments have laws about throwing away batteries, latex paint and other potentially toxic substances. Call your city's waste management department to find out what rules apply to you.
When handling waste, it's important to know how to keep yourself and anyone around you safe. Certain materials can be potential safety hazards. For example, improper handling of chemicals can harm your health, and construction debris haphazardly left around can lead to an injury.
Safety Tips for Handling Hazardous Waste:
Some common examples of hazardous waste you might encounter include:
The average U.S. household generates more than 20 pounds of hazardous waste every year. However, not everyone knows how to dispose of it. Often, these potentially harmful substances get stowed away until the family moves or does a major cleaning overhaul.
Safety Tips for Handling Construction Waste:
When performing do-it-yourself home upgrades, you may encounter dangerous materials on your own. For example, asbestos, a harmful substance that was previously a popular insulative material, may be found in older homes. If you're handling asbestos on your own:
Other materials, like broken pieces of wood or boards with nails sticking out, should be directly disposed of into your rented dumpster or a designated waste pile. Be sure everyone working with you knows where this is. Also, see that everyone is wearing protective clothing, close-toed shoes, and work gloves. Safety goggles are never a bad idea, either.
If you're new to your area or have questions about trash, recycling, or compost removal options, contact your city's waste management department. Additionally, if you are working on something new that will require additional trash, waste, or junk removal, it's always a good idea to get more information about this prior to beginning your project. If you aren't sure about how to dispose of something, like an old car battery or asbestos you found in your home, contact your local waste management department to find out what they suggest.
If you're putting on a big event or working on a large construction project, your kitchen trash can might not be big enough to hold all of your refuse. Dumpsters can usually be rented from your local waste management department or a close-by dumpster rental company. They are typically rented out on a per-week basis, so they are great for multi-day jobs. But if your project or event will be completed in one day, it might be more cost effective to pay for a junk removal service.
Dumpster-rental costs vary widely, depending on how long you'll need the dumpster and what size you choose. Common sizes include:
The most popular size is the 20-yard dumpster, which is commonly used for outdoor projects or home remodels. Bigger options, like the 30- and 40-yard dumpster, are generally used for major home renovations. They are also ideal for community cleanup events. The smallest sizes can be great for major home clean-outs in the spring or small do-it-yourself remodeling jobs.
