Our next topic involves a fee added on by a service center for the recycling of auto oil, which is not legal in the state.
In May 17, 2016 article by Eric Reinhardt composed an article on the Business Journal News Network titled ‘Kost Tire to pay nearly $300,000 to settle state AG accusations over customer oil-change fees’ with the following news: “Kost Tire will pay NY almost $300,000 in a settlement of accusations for collecting a fee from consumers that the state’s law has prohibited specifically. NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman had charged Kost Tire of adding customer extra fees of $2 fee for oil changes which they performed for several years in violation of the law. They had levied an “oil & filter recycling fee” beyond the quoted price for the work.
NY Environmental Conservation Laws prohibit such service providers from charging fees for accepting & disposal of used oil. The Binghamton–based owner & operator of twenty-five service stations throughout NY. Kost Tire & Auto Service stores are a division of Mr. Tire Auto Centers per their website. The Munro Muffler & Brake organization owns the Mr. Tire brand.
Schneiderman says these stations are required to collect & dispose of used oil without additional charges. By adding on a $2 fee, customers were being charged a higher price for oil changes under false pretenses that the fee was a gov’t requirement. The agreement will continue to protect the environment and also protect consumers. The investigation discovered that Kost collected over $180K in improper fees since 2012.
Also, the settlement acknowledged that Kost’s separate oil & filter-recycling fee on its invoices is misleading, since it implies that the charges are required by law. As a part of the settlement, Kost Tire has agreed to pay the state of NY more than $181,000 or the amount of the “illegally” obtained oil & filter recycling fees, along with a civil penalty of more than $93K.” The full article is available at this link: http://www.cnybj.com/News/Articles/TabId/102/ArticleId/43389/language/en-US/kost-tire-to-pay-nearly-300000-to-settle-state-ag-accusations-over-customer-oil-change-fees.aspx#.VztaKmf2bq4
