Taking Recycling Seriously

When I started paying more attention to the environment, I realized that it might be smart to see about enrolling in my city's recycling program. It seemed a little overwhelming, but I knew that I would be able to get the hang of it and make a big difference. I called the city, and sure enough, there was a recycling program that would fit my budget. This blog is all about taking recycling seriously, and how to take your first initial steps towards becoming more green. You never know, after trying it for a few weeks, it might become a normal part of your everyday life.

Need Consistent Commercial Trash Removal? Ask Removal Companies These Important Questions

If you are looking for a commercial trash service provider to take care of the needs for the waste you have on your different job sites, find a company that will offer a competitive rate. You will want to find out how large the waste bins are, or if you can get a dumpster to keep on the property.

Ask for details about the contract before choosing a company. Some of the things to ask about their service include:

  • What are acceptable forms of payment?
  • Does the contract automatically renew or can you negotiate annually?
  • How often can you move pickup locations?
  • Is there a multi-bin discount?

These are just some of the questions you want to know. If you are concerned about the costs, also ask about the following things.

Can You Save by Recycling?

An important question to ask right away is if you can save money by having recycling bins as well. Not only does this help protect the environment by providing reusable materials for future goods and needs, and keeping the debris out of landfills, but it could also earn you a discount on your trash bill. Ask what types of containers and pickup services are required.

Does Collection Frequency Matter?

You may be able to save money if you only have your waste bin or dumpster picked up bi-monthly, depending on the commercial trash pickup service provider you choose. If they will give you a reduced rate for only needing service every other week. Test it out and see if you can wait that long between pickups.

Does It Have to Be a Set Rate?

If the amount of waste you'll have from job to job is going to vary and the size of the bin you will need also changes, ask if you get a different rate. This means you could save money if you have a small roll-off dumpster dropped off one week, as opposed to needing two units a month later for one job.

You can also try to save money by telling the commercial trash pickup company that you would be willing to sign a long-term contract if there is an incentive like a lowered rate or priority pickup. There are a lot of different types of waste, so go through the contract details before dumping in any of the waste bins, and make sure that you're not throwing out things that can't be hauled away.
