I looked around the country for the car I wanted in the color I wanted. White Bear was able to divert a shipment from the port to make it happen when my local dealers were only interested in selling me a car they had. I flew from Texas to Minneapolis and my salesperson picked me up at the airport in the same type of car I was buying - she owned one as well! Their 'fair pricing' roots from Saturn, that their folks aren't paid on commission, and the family attitude made for a very smooth and low-stress (well, no-stress!) experience. This was the first time I'd ever visited a dealer wanting to ask more questions so I didn't have to leave so soon. Ann, Cartrice, Tom, and Nancy are professionals! Need a car? Hope on an airplane - it'll be worth the trip!
I recently purchased a 2007 Harley Davidson from your company. It was the Saturday before the large hail storm in our area. I believe the purchase date was 6/10/17. I was promised by my salesperson and I have it in writing that I would be given a second motorcycle key since there was only one and a owner’s manual. I never received any responses once I drove away from the shop. I called the last week of June and the salesman again stated he was going to get me the 2nd key promised and told me he would send me a link to a web site that I could buy my own owner’s manual. Now 7/29 and no reply’s no keys. Nice way to treat a customer that purchased a $9000 used bike and gave you a great deal on my trade in. I choose to finance with one of your credit unions. On June 30 I had not received any info so I called and let a message with your finance department. Then on July 6 , still no response from either the sale person or the finance department. I then drove back to you shop on Friday 7/7 and tried to talk with your finance department. I was never given a chance; all the gal at the main counter could do was take my name and email address and stated they would get back to me that day. On Monday 7/10 I was given the name of the credit union my loan was through. After several calls was notified my 1st payment was due on 7/12/17. I was forced to scramble and open an account with them so I could wire the money from my bank to them. My credit score is over 800 because of the way I mange my finances!! I plan on posting this story on every motorcycle site that will let me. Complete horrible customer service, customer relations and a lost customer for life along with a few biker buddies friend of my friend!! Jim L
When buying a new vehicle, the last thing anyone imagines is that contacting a dealership is going to be an experience that affirms the good that exists in humanity. However, for me, that's exactly the kind of experience I had at White Bear. Before committing to come in, I spent several hours calling every Mitsubishi dealership within a day’s travel of me. The professionalism and helpfulness of White Bear staff immediately made them stand out from the rest and the commitment and integrity that they followed through with places them in a class second to none. I worked with Ed by phone, Rob as my primary salesperson, and with Tom on completing the financing. Every single person that I met was as remarkably professional as they were knowledgeable on the cars I had questions about. At no point did I ever feel pressured into something I didn't want or see a need for. I was further impressed that White Bear not only lived up to the expectations we built while talking on the phone, but exceeded them on every front when it came to closing the deal.Perhaps equally impressive is our new Outlander SLE Touring, to which all other vehicles we looked at pale in price, quality, features, and technology. Trading in my deeply loved Toyota Corolla S Plus seemed difficult when looking at other models, but when we test drove the Mitsubishi Outlander, it clearly outperformed in every way. With the comfort of an industry leading 100,000 mile, 10 year warranty, complimentary road side assistance, White Bear’s Extended life-time power-train warranty, the optional life-time electronic component warranty we took advantage of, and the legendary reliability of Mitsubishi’s MIVEC 2.4 liter engine, upgrading seemed as effortless as it was obvious.In a world full of deals too good to be true, shady salespeople, and false promises, White Bear Mitsubishi is a bedrock of honesty and integrity. I have never been to a dealership more friendly, fair, helpful, honest, or full of brilliant individuals who live and breathe their industry. The pure unadulterated excellence they exhibited has earned them my customer loyalty for many years to come.
Jennifer was great to work with helped make the process as smooth as possible even when I came back to the dealership with my decision and my 2 and 5 yr old with me. I would definitely go back when purchasing another vehicle in the future as well!
Best place to go if you are looking for a car and want to deal with professional who are helpful and friendly expecially chelsie Beebe she was awesome and did everything she could to help me get the car I needed
Great place to do service work. Troy and Brett in the service department are amazing. Quick and easy lol changes too.
My experience was awesome! I worked with Nancy Miller in sales, Richard Herod III (the GM), and Kim Berbaum in finance - from start to finish my experience buying my Evo was top notch! Nancy was incredibly helpful in finding the right car with the right equipment and was eager to show me all of the cool features my car has (besides the fact that it's fast)! Richard was instrumental in making sure I was completely welcome and at home while I was there, and Kim went the extra mile in making sure I had the best experience in protecting my car and my lease. After I bought my car, I noticed it pulled to the left a little, so I took it into service. Troy, the service manager, was super eager to assist and had the alignment taken care of right away. While they were doing that, one of the technicians noticed that a trim piece was not properly installed from the factory and they fixed that for me, too! A+++++++++++++!!!!!!!!
I was very pleased with my overall experience with Apple Valley Ford in Burnsville. I will just give the good instead of knitpicking like I do about nonsequil matters. I wanted a cheap car and that location deals with primarily new from what I saw, but they have two used car locations specifically for used. They showed me the cheapest car they had and it was a really nice inside and out metallic green Grand Am Gt with high miles but pristine condition. Drove well, had a few glitches one they fixed next business day and other they said buy the part and they would do a free install for the hour labor it would take. So fair in my standards considering they weren't going to do anything for the second glitch till I spoke to a manager and he authorised the labor for the fogged headlights. Overall there wasn't any haggling, price is the price. I wanted to buy from them rather than a little rinky dink dealer because I think they are just better quality in all ways. So far very pleased and glad I went there for my used car.
Customer service is great, sales people don't follow up after a sale, bought a $25,000 Spyder never received a call to see how it was going, plus already in for service, it's been in for two weeks now figured out what was wrong after five days or the part came in today a week after they ordered. Called to see how it was going but they were working on a snowmobile because it was for a new customer and they need to get it out to make him happy. I'm also a new customer just purchased my spider in July. I told him that it was still motorcycle season not snowmobile season that my spider should been done before The snowmobile. I guess first-in last out is there Moto .
I've never been more satisfied in my life purchasing a used car~truck~van than from this family here. Iv bought 5 used vehicles in great condition and now that I'm in MI now, I'll go back to MN and purchase another. All vehicles are pre-inspected ready to go.Just ask for Nicole!
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.
