All business owners and facility managers look for ways to save their company’s hard-earned profits. Maybe you’re researching money-saving tips to conserve valuable resources.
Sure, you could do things like streamline your products, reduce employee hours, or cut your marketing budget, but instead, why not keep all your goods and services as is, lose nothing, and save time and money too?
It might sound impossible, but at Smash My Trash, we make that happen for businesses just like yours every day.
Running a business or facility takes a considerable amount of time. You shouldn’t have to spend it managing your commercial waste. At Smash My Trash, we believe in saving business owners money and time without asking them to sacrifice anything in the process.
How do we do it? By reducing your waste volume by up to 70 percent.
Here’s how we make it happen.
Smashing Trash and Reducing Waste Haul Charges
How is it that our services cut down on your waste haul charges? You still have the same amount of waste, right?
When you work with Smash My Trash, we bring our powerful Smash Trucks to you. These trucks are equipped with a long arm and a heavy, toothy roller that breaks the trash in your commercial dumpsters up into much smaller pieces, effectively reducing the amount of space your waste takes up.
When you have more room in your commercial dumpsters, you can fit more waste. This means you don’t have to pay for as many haul offs, reducing the amount you pay each month for waste removal.
Companies have to pay all kinds of unfair prices to have their trash hauled off. We’ve seen haul offs cost between $350 and $800 per haul! If you’re stuck in an unfair waste management contract, that means you’re paying between $1,400 and $3,200 each month just to have your trash hauled away, regardless of how full your dumpsters are.
We think this is unfair. And as a result, we’re here to shake up the waste management industry and save you money.
Addressing the Problem of Weight
There are two ways that contracts with waste management companies work. The first way is that you pay a flat rate each time you have your waste hauled off no matter the weight. Whether your dumpster is half full of feathers and crumpled up newspaper pages or filled to the max fill line with heavy building materials, you pay the same amount.
With a contract like this, it’s easy to see how waste haul reduction services like Smash My Trash can save you money: You pay for fewer haul offs. But there’s also a second kind of waste management contract where your waste is weighed and you also pay a fee based on the weight of your waste.
If your commercial waste contract means that you pay for waste removal by the total weight, how does this save you money? You’re still paying your waste removal company to haul off the same amount of waste, right?
Yes, you pay for the total weight of your waste. But you also pay a fee multiple times for the truck driver to come to your location and carry off your waste. You’re probably also paying unfair fees for things like landfill tipping charges or gate fees. These can add an unnecessary extra 22 to 25 percent to your waste haul charges each time you need a haul off.
So how does Smash My Trash save you money? By cutting down on the number of times you have to pay for haul offs. If you are going to throw away 10 tons of commercial waste, you’re still going to pay for 10 tons of waste. But the difference with Smash My Trash is that instead of paying to haul it off 10 times at one ton per haul, you might pay for five hauls at two tons apiece.
The less time a waste management service truck has to come to your facility and pick up your waste, the more money you’ll save. We can’t cut down on the tonnage of your commercial dumpster, but we’ll reduce the number of times you have to pay to haul it off—which is how waste haul reduction works.
One company we serve was able to cut their weekly fee for two dumpsters down to just once per month. As a result? We’ve saved them tens of thousands of dollars each year.
Save Money, Save Time
Time is in short supply. If you’re spending too much time calling waste management companies to schedule waste haul offs or you’re tired of calling at the wrong time and being without your dumpster on days you need it most, you know how inconvenient waste management can be.
And if your dumpster is overflowing, sometimes waste management companies won’t even haul it off! They’ll charge you for a “dry run” and then take off, leaving you stuck with an overflowing dumpster. You miss days of productivity because you have to call and schedule a new trash pickup. We’ve even had clients who lose valuable time because they spend time trying to mash down their trash by hand so their dumpsters aren’t overflowing.
Smash My Trash makes it easier for you. Our Smash Trucks break your trash into smaller pieces on a regular schedule, and we’ll let you know when it’s time to call your waste management company. You never have to run out and check the status of your commercial dumpster or try and compress trash on your own. We handle it all for you to save your valuable time.
Smash My Trash’s services sound great on paper—and their real-life application is just as great. We’d love to show you the power of our Smash Trucks in action. Request a free demo today, and we’ll come out and show you exactly how we’ll reduce your waste haul charges.
