Smash My Trash reduces waste hauls by maximizing your dumpster space.
We Notify You When It’s Time to Haul.
Once your commercial dumpster is fully compacted several different times, and there’s no more room in it, our Smash Truck driver will notify you it’s time to schedule a haul with your regular waste removal company.
You Only Have Your Trash Hauled When You Need To
There’s no longer a need to worry about your warehouse staff monitoring your dumpster and calling to have it hauled. You no longer have to be concerned about the costly expense of having trash hauled when there is still lots of room in your dumpster.
The Problem with Traditional Waste Removal
Too many companies get frustrated because they call to have their trash picked up, and it takes several days to get results. As a “solution,” traditional waste removal may be scheduled once a week, and companies agree to it because they need space in their commercial dumpster for their continued operations. The problem is that trash gets picked up whether it’s needed or not, and companies pay top dollar for hauls that aren’t even full.
Additional problems with traditional waste removal include:
One-Sided Long-Term Contracts
Most companies who haul trash set up one-sided contracts that cause businesses to lose out. These unfriendly 3-7 year contracts are restrictive and binding, and often contain a clause that the waste removal company can raise their price whenever they want. Price increases happen almost annually, and businesses are tied to the contract, so there’s nothing they can do about it.
Variables in Turnaround Times
When a business notifies a waste management company that they need their trash picked up, the company may not show up for 1-4 days. This inconsistency in turnaround times can create other problems. If a business knows their dumpster will be full by Thursday, but the waste management company doesn’t show up until 4 business days later, the dumpster may be overflowing by then because of how long it took the waste removal company to arrive.
Costly Overflowing Trash
When dumpsters are overflowing, sometimes waste removal companies refuse to haul your trash because the dumpster is too full, yet you still get charged a “dry run” fee because they made the trip to your business.
Inability to Get to the Dumpster
If a waste management company can’t get to the commercial dumpster, they still charge you. If they see your dumpster is blocked, they simply drive past your business. You’ll be left with your trash, and charged for their attempt to pick it up.
With traditional waste management companies, in addition to the typical charge to pick up your dumpster and return it, there can be up to 35% in additional random fees and taxes. For example, the charge to pick up a dumpster may be $250, yet a $75 city fee and $42 franchise area fee may be applied, creating a total bill of $367.
Depending on how far your business is from the landfill, the waste management company may pick up your dumpster and bring it back, leaving you with a period of time with no dumpster at all. Other times, they may bring an empty dumpster, and leave it with you, and simply pick up your full one. This inconsistency in service can hinder your operations. There can be underlying expenses if you don’t have a dumpster for a period of time.
Operations can be interrupted and workspace blocked by trash building up, causing unsafe and unsightly conditions at your business.
