Five ways to reduce waste management costs in condos and apartment buildings:
- Step 1 – Compile Waste Analytics
Determine where you have recycling that is less cost per unit than the waste cost per unit and divert to those streams of recycling.
- Step 2 – Perform Right Sizing
Right-size your waste service by putting on the correct schedule and using the right size bin.
- Step 3 – Move bins with V-move dumpster mover
Consider purchasing, leasing, or renting a V-move dumpster mover to bring your bin and tote movement in-house, from the waste room to the curb for service. This will reduce or eliminate 3rd-party pull-out costs to save money, reduce damages, decrease noise, reduce pollution, and increase resident satisfaction. If you are in BC, Canada you can get a rebate of up to $2,000 back on the purchase of certain V-move dumpster movers.
- Step 4 – Education
Provide education to change behavior, reduce costs and improve resident satisfaction.
- Step 5 – Monitor
Monitor your waste room to ensure there is no dumping of commercial waste or banned materials that impacts your waste costs.
