Are you the owner of a home, business, or multifamily property that is in need of commercial trash service? If so, you are not alone. Thousands of people just like you are looking to make a decision around the trash and recycling services at the properties that they own. The good news for decision makers like you is that there are typically quite a few options to choose from. The below list will hopefully provide you with some information that you need before you start your search:
1. Services Offered – Depending on where you live and the commercial trash service you contact, there will be number of services that are offered. Besides basic trash pickup, recent studies show that nearly 90% of Americans also have access recycling services. In addition to trash and recycling, some companies offer to pick up items like yard waste, restaurant specific waste, and more. If you own a multifamily property or business, contact a commercial trash service in your area and ask what options they have for you!
2. Pricing – Whether you are searching for a new car, new home, or a new trash removal service, you will at some point be thinking about price. Getting price quotes from several trash companies in your area is always a good option, but you should also prepare yourself for the averages. Typically it costs a company around $30 per ton to recycle trash, whereas if they send it to a landfill the price jumps to $50 per ton. When you are calling around for quotes, ask the companies you speak to whether they sort and recycle the trash they pick up or if they send the majority of it to a landfill. That may be the answer you need to determine the best company for your budget.
3. Environmental Impact – Did you know that nearly $12 billion is spent every single year to clean up litter? That litter can be found in cities, lakes, streams, oceans, parks, and more. If you are a business or property owner who is committed to making a positive environmental impact on our world, then the commercial trash service you choose should also be committed to that cause. Efforts that reduce the amount of litter in our world will not only save billions of dollars, but will benefit generations to come.
Whether you own a small business, a multilevel property, or a residential home there will be some point in time when you have to consider your trash removal service. When you do, remember to consider the variety of services offered, the pricing you should expect, and the environmental impact. With these items in mind as well as the other questions you will likely ask, you?ll be more prepared than most!
