Sunnyvale, CA asked in Consumer Law and Small Claims for California

Q: Is this False Advertising?

I requested dirt dumpsters from Republic Service. It is ~$500 per bin. The contract also mentioned the limit is 2 tons. Extra tonnage is $130/ton. I did not pay attention to the limit because I thought if this dumpster was for dirt, if I filled up, it should be around 2 tons. But when I received the statement, I was surprised that the weight is 7-8 tons. I requested 5 bins so I was charged $6k+. Do you think it looks like False Advertising? Thanks
