Do you ever feel like you’re serving your commercial waste management company instead of it serving you?
Most waste hauling providers have rules and preferences they require their customers to follow for their own convenience. If they meet any obstacle during a haul, the service might not be completed.
And what’s more, they enforce those preferences with hidden fees! Instead of doing what it takes to get the job done, they look for every possible way you make their job harder, and they add an item to your bill.
Many businesses feel like they’re held hostage by their waste hauling service. They need the service, but spend too much time managing their waste themselves for the company they pay to manage it for them. If they don’t jump through the hoops these companies have created, they’ll be penalized in fees or incomplete service.
Some businesses try to simplify waste hauling by hiring a provider who charges by weight. They pay a flat fee for every ton of waste that gets hauled. Easy, right? Except those providers find plenty of extra costs to tack on too.
Is there any way to dispose of commercial trash without paying exorbitant waste haul charges?
Smash My Trash has the solution.
Manage Waste Haul Charges Instead of Dumpster Weight Charges
If you’re paying by the ton for waste hauling, you might think the solution to cut costs is to decrease how much garbage you produce.
Sure, you can try this, but how realistic is it? Every business has trash. Are you going to ask your busy employees to take extra steps to reduce the amount of waste your business makes? And is it even possible to reduce your waste enough that it would reduce your dumpster weight charges significantly? Probably not.
You have to think outside the box—or dumpster—in this case. If you can’t reduce your waste, then you can’t reduce your dumpster weight charges. But you can reduce the extraneous prices that get added to your bill each month with waste haul reduction.
Smash My Trash provides businesses with costs-saving trash compacting services. Our Smash Trucks compact the garbage in your dumpster and reduce the number of hauling trips your provider makes to your site. The fewer times it comes out for pick-ups, the fewer chances it has to stick you with nitpicky waste haul charges.
To explain it further, if you produce 10 tons of waste each month and your dumpster only holds one ton of loose trash, your waste management company visits 10 times. That’s 10 times that it can charge you for little things like having to open a gate to access your garbage or hauling an overflowing dumpster. By the end of the month, those fees really add up!
Now imagine if Smash My Trash is compacting that trash and you can fit twice as much garbage in your dumpster. You now only need your waste hauling provider to come five times a month. That’s a waste haul reduction of 50%. You still have the same dumpster weight charges because 10 tons of trash are still being hauled, but those extra waste haul charges have been cut in half.
Trash compacting saves you the hassle of managing your trash for the convenience of your commercial waste hauler and saves you from the unnecessary fees it likes to charge. So go ahead and keep making trash. You no longer have to worry about how it will fit in the budget!
What If Compacting Complicates My Trash Hauling?
If you’re concerned that adding another service to your commercial waste management might complicate things, we don’t blame you. After all, those hauling companies always are finding new ways to add extra charges when a pick-up isn’t as straightforward as they would like.
We’ve been asked what happens if compacted trash gets wedged in too tightly and won’t fall out at the landfill. Presumably, the hauler would charge you for the inconvenience of dislodging the trash, or it would return the dumpster and charge you for that weight every time it hauled your dumpster until it fell out.
We’re happy to say that this virtually never happens.
Our Smash Trucks don’t work like typical trash compactors. Our machines spin and rotate to break up all kinds of commercial waste so that there are never pieces large enough to get stuck. With smaller pieces of debris, it’s not only easier to fit more waste in your containers but also to haul and dump it.
Smash My Trash’s goal is to simplify commercial waste management. By compacting your trash, we remove the worry that your waste hauling service will refuse to haul overflowing containers or charge you for having too much trash. We save you time and money. And while they probably won’t admit it, we make your waste management company’s job easier too.
Reduce Your Waste Haul Charges When You’re Overpaying for Dumpster Weight Charges
No business should break the bank paying for garbage. You have more important things to spend your funds on.
When you can’t cut your dumpster weight charges, cut your waste haul charges instead. Smash My Trash can’t reduce the weight of your garbage, but we can reduce its volume and minimize the number of times it needs to be hauled. We don’t think you should have to pay extra fees for a service you’re already paying for, and we bet you agree.
