Trash Removal reviews in Chicago

My organization contracted with Allied (now called Republic) in 1995. We signed an 3-year auto-renewing contract in which rates were to be indexed to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
The monthly rate on the 1995 contract was $64. In Sept 2010 we switched from weekly to bi-weekly pickup, which dropped our rate from $204 to $106. From then to now, the rate has increased by an average of 24%/year:
Allied, bi-weekly, 1 yard:
Sept 2010: $106
Sept 2014: $250
We obtained these other quotes, which come with fixed rates for a time and then increase at a capped rate of 4-5%/year:
Waste Management, weekly, 1 yard: $65
Flood Brothers, weekly, 1 yard: $60
Allied's counteroffer: $180! I have written to cancel service, and they claim they are "not able" to terminate service at this time. I believe they are going to claim we are bound by contract until some future year. At a minimum I believe they have violated the contract by increasing prices faster than the CPI.
I fear I may need legal advice to deal with this. They are already an F, and things may still get worse.

Provider name locked. did not pay their bills. This company called all the time in a very rude and angry way. I understand the payments were late. But calling up and accusing me of being on drugs. Very nasty and sarcastic. There is no excuse for that.

It went well. Provider name locked. kept in touch with me up until they arrived at the location. They worked pretty fast in removing the junk way. Hated that it was a limit on how much they could take away, though. If they weren't so far away, I would use them again.
