For better or worse, waste is a side product of business, and every company wants to reduce waste disposal costs. With ever-tightening environmental regulations, it becomes increasingly expensive to responsibly remove your company’s garbage without blowing your budget. Depending on your business type, your waste expense management may include:

  • Trash and solid waste
  • Medical waste
  • Pharma waste
  • Hazardous waste
  • Organic waste
  • Grease and oil waste
  • E-waste waste
  • Shredding waste
  • Recycling waste

Do your costs just keep going up?

Even as you struggle to reduce waste management expenses, hauling companies make a practice of increasing their fees every year. When you pay invoices for multiple locations, it’s easy to miss an increase. But over time, those increases will do real damage to your bottom line.

When your shop for service vendors, it can be hard to know if you are getting the best prices.

Read these real-life client stories.

  • This furniture store chain didn’t produce a lot of trash, but their waste removal contract called for a minimum load of 2 tons for every pick-up, even though most of their loads were less than half a ton. We also discovered the waste hauler was billing for twice the tonnage the contract specified!
  • A donut store chain owner knew prices were rising but didn’t realize he was getting hit with a 30% annual price hike across many of his store locations. The SIB team dug deeper and found that more than half of the stores were paying for trash pick-ups they didn’t need.
  • A hotel owner was under contract with a national waste hauler who managed the account through a local hauler that performed the service. Though the contract stated that the client was exempt from fuel and environmental fees, SIB cost experts found the local hauler was adding them to the invoice that went to the national hauler. Not only did the national hauler miss the oversight, but it added a billing charge of its own: A 4-ton minimum tonnage per haul!
