Your business may generate a lot of waste on a daily basis. Each day, you may fill up dozens of trash bins, dumpsters, and other receptacles. You may be embarrassed at having to hire the local trash collection company to come and empty them out each day.
Rather than pay for the expense of daily trash collection, you might be interested in coming up with strategies to reduce your waste and its related expenses. You can consult with a business that specializes in these strategies to come up with an effective waste management plan.
An effective waste management plan may include recycling as much of your waste as possible. Paper, for example, can be recycled instead of thrown away. You can reduce the amount of trash that goes in your bins by placing paper in the recycling container instead and having a service haul it away at the end of the week.
You can also reduce the amount of waste you put in your bins by shredding materials as often as possible. Instead of crumpling up paper, plastic, and other materials, you can shred them into tinier bits that take up less space in your trash bins. Again, the recycling company can pick up these materials at the end of the week.
Finally, the company can help you come up with new ways to use materials that you would otherwise throw away. For example, Styrofoam cups can double as planters for seeds that you can plant in a corporate garden. Milk containers can also double as planters or containers for seeds or new plants that need some time to take root.
These options allow you to save money on trash hauling services as well as space in your trash bins. You can find out more about your company’s options online.
