  1. Customer agrees to extend to Lifecycle all reasonably necessary cooperation to achieve successful service, including access to the service area(s).

  2. Customer acknowledges that: Lifecycle may provide Equipment to the Customer as a part of (or to perform) service; all Equipment shall remain Lifecycle’s property and for its exclusive use; Customer grants Lifecycle access to its location(s) for the purpose of removal of its Equipment; and that Equipment removal may first require Lifecycle to perform service, and fees may apply. This provision shall survive termination of any Customer agreement.
  3. Lifecycle services commonly involve the removal of food waste materials. Customer agrees that such waste material is in its immediate control, and that such material will only contain organic food waste, and that such waste will not contain hazardous, toxic, noxious or polluting substances. Customer agrees that non-organic food waste materials, excessive amounts of food waste solids, excessive water, and/or other refuse may cause fees to be charged to the Customer. Lifecycle also reserves the right to grade waste vegetable oil for the useable portions and may deduct any unusable volumes.

  7. No delay on the part of Lifecycle or Customer in exercising any of its rights under any Customer agreement shall prevent the exercise of such rights at a later date, and any waiver or any breach by either party shall not be deemed a waiver of any other subsequent breach.
  8. Lifecycle shall not be liable for failure to perform its obligations if such failure is a result of Acts of God, or other factors beyond its reasonable control, and Customer shall not be entitled to terminate its Customer agreement in such circumstances.
