As we all know, saving money and maximising your profit are hugely significant factors in business, particularly after the past year. Waste management is an essential part of many businesses’ operations and we want to help you get the most of out of your money by putting together our top tips to keep waste and recycling collection costs down.
Recycle, recycle, recycle
Recycling bins are cheaper than general waste bins, so ensure you segregate your recyclable materials. This will free up space in your general waste bins and means that you can have smaller bins or fewer collections.
To maximise the space in your recycling bins to further reduce the amount of collections, ensure you’re as economic as you can be with the space by flat packing cardboard and squashing cans/plastic bottles, etc.
A waste audit is a great place to start identifying troublesome materials and how to increase your recycling. We offer free waste audits to all our customers, so please get in touch if you would like a waste audit and are already a customer. If you’re not yet a customer and would like to discuss your waste needs, please give one of our waste experts a call on 03330 433 033 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using one supplier
Using one supplier for all your waste needs gives you greater ‘buying power’ and can lead to larger discounts.
We can arrange for all types of waste to be collected and recycled where possible, this included, general waste, mixed recycling, food and glass recycling, hazardous waste, confidential waste, sanitary waste and much more.
If your business creates a lot of waste, using a compactor or baler might be beneficial to you. These machines can be bought outright or rented with competitive prices, including service plans. By condensing waste and recycling, it enables you to reduce the amount of space needed for waste and should reduce the amount of collection visits, improving your carbon footprint as well as saving money.
Does your current waste supplier provide you with a waste report? Waste reports are useful if you want to track how much your business is recycling or if you have several sites and would like to see which ones could do with a little more training.
We can provide our customers with an online report which clearly shows how much waste/recycling we have collected and if that amount is increasing or decreasing. This is useful for when you need a detailed overview of your business waste or also if you want to openly disclose the amount that you recycle as a business.
