Helping you with your wastage

Firstly we identify the costly mistakes that big corporate and medium sized companies might be making.

You should be benchmarking pricing and services regularly, assuming your provider is looking after you can be a major cost over time.

Thinking it’s all about beating up your supplier on rates, there are so many other angles. Putting your recycling such as cardboard in general waste bin will cost you up to 7 times the cost of recycling.

• Using the wrong service, font lift bins, skip bins, bins being picked up ½ empty.
• Don’t fall for the honeymoon rate.
• Beware contracts have an automatic roll over clause, so if you miss the window to question or review you are locked in for another term usually 3 years.
