Opportunities to Reduce Waste Removal Costs
You may not think it but there’s a wide range of waste removal service providers and plenty of competition to keep prices reasonable. The trouble is, many of these companies don’t provide a great deal of flexibility in their contracts, allowing only a short window of time to renew or cancel their services at the end of your term. If you miss this window, you’re locked in for another period of time with no guarantee that they won’t raise their rates during the course of your agreement. Additionally, you could be paying for a level of service you’re not actually using. Costfixed can help you better understand your usage patterns and find opportunities for savings that most companies would over look on your waste removal contracts.
Having a solid understanding of your waste stream profile can help you understand your consumption patterns and identify ways to reduce waste, increase recycling and save money. Commercial waste streams can vary greatly depending on the industry, business type, office/facility space, business size, and services/products provided. Waste reduction and cost reduction strategies can vary just as much from simple onsite minimization to operational changes, recycling initiatives, and procurement practices. Before we negotiate with your current waste removal provider we follow a simple three step approach:
Step 1: Take stock of your waste
Step 2: Assess the volume of garbage and recycled materials.
Step 3: Perform audit and create plan of action
Waste removal service providers take advantage of the fact that most companies have limited knowledge of their industry standards and therefore have little bargaining power against their pricing models. CostFixed has the experience and data to identify these inequalities and level the playing field, providing you with measurable fixed cost reduction and uncovering hidden fees that will immediately impact your bottom line.
