If you’ve ever dealt with waste management companies and their steep charges, you know that many of these companies are out to overcharge you for the essential services your business needs for its day-to-day functions. At Smash My Trash, we are here to help limit the impact these services can have on your bottom line.
Dealing with a commercial waste management company can be a source of major frustration. You have to endure inconsistent pickups and paying full fees only to have the truck drive off without picking up your dumpsters, claiming the bins are too full and charging you anyway.
Signing a contract doesn’t usually seem to be a much better deal. It means you have to pay for pickups whether or not you need them, you’re locked into a contract for as long as seven years at a time and rates climb year after year.
No matter the way you look at it, you are probably overpaying for your waste management services.
If you’ve become frustrated with your waste management company, you may have heard about the work that some lawyers are doing to protect people from overpaying on their waste management contracts. We’ve heard about it all:
- A waste management company overcharging a retirement community by $100,000 per year for a single dumpster
- A commercial waste management service charging a charter school $48,000 more than they should have paid each year
- A waste management company overbilling nonprofit organizations as much as $20,000 per year
At Smash My Trash, we know that this is a complete waste of your business’ budget.
Ditch Your Waste Management Contract
We hear it from our clients all the time. Businesses hire waste management services on a need-only basis, but they receive poor service or inconsistent service. They call to request a pickup but have to wait several days before their dumpster is emptied or hauled off. When they call to complain, the waste management company offers a contract with ongoing service—usually weekly haul offs—and the business owner accepts. They may not need such frequent pickups, but they need the consistency a contract provides.
What happens once these business owners sign a contract? Things certainly don’t improve. They’re locked into a multi-year contract with prices that can contractually increase year after year with no change or improvement in services. And these business owners have to pay for trash haul offs even when their dumpsters are half empty, per their contract.
This is clearly a one-sided scenario that only benefits the waste management companies. And it’s incredibly frustrating.
Our teams at Smash My Trash are committed to helping business owners like you eliminate the need for price-gouging contracts like these. With our on-site waste reduction services, you can pay for far fewer pickups and deal with fewer hidden fees. Our services can reduce hauls by up to 70 percent.
Don’t let your waste management contract drag on for years and pay for services you don’t need. We’ll reduce the volume of the trash piling up in your dumpster so you save money by paying fewer collection costs and eliminating or cutting your service contract altogether.
Reduce Your Total Number of Haul Offs
You may have been lucky enough to avoid a contract with your local waste management up to this point, but you’re probably still overpaying them for less-than-stellar service. Contract or no, you still have to pay for haul offs, and you most likely have to deal with overflowing dumpsters while you wait for the waste management trucks to arrive.
Our trash-compacting Smash trucks are equipped with cameras to ensure we never damage a dumpster bin–and to this point, it’s never happened. But what we are able to do with these trucks is reduce the volume of the waste in your dumpster bins so you don’t have to pay for service quite so often. You can pay less to commercial waste services.
Waste removal is expensive. You’ve worked too hard to spend your business’ profits on waste removal fees. Why not save money and let our Smash My Trash teams compact your trash instead? Our goal always is to support businesses like yours by saving you some of the costs and hassle of waste management services.
Pay Less in Unfair Waste Removal Hidden Fees
When it comes to price gouging and unfair waste removal fees, we’ve heard it all from our clients. If you work with a commercial waste service, you’ve probably seen more than one of the following added or hidden fees on your waste haul bill:
- Key charges if the truck driver needs a key to access your dumpster
- Enclosure charges if your dumpsters are located in a fenced-in location
- Gate service charges if drivers must pass through a closed or locked gate
- Regulatory charges for things like fuel, landfill fees and transporting waste long distances
- Blockage charges if there are items near and around the dumpster—you’re charged a blockage fee, and you’re also denied a haul off
- Dry run charges if a driver claims they can’t successfully complete a pickup
At Smash My Trash, we think that business owners shouldn’t be treated to these unfair, unnecessary fees. You should be in control, not your waste management company. Our services reduce the volume of your dumpster load so you not only have to pay fewer haul-off fees, but you pay less in hidden fees too.
You can forget about blocked dumpsters or other commercial dumpster costs. We compact your trash so you don’t have to sacrifice so much of your hard-earned profits to these unfair fees.
Don’t settle for steep contracts or hidden fees. Smash My Trash can reduce the exorbitant costs you pay to waste management companies and protect your business’ interests all at once.
