When you run an apartment complex, a big part of your job is providing a smooth residential experience for your tenants. One major component of that is making it easy for your residents to dispose of their garbage, recyclables, and waste.
The single best thing you can do to provide your residents with easy waste management options is to choose the right vendor. Not all waste management services are created equal, so it’s worth taking some time to do your due diligence, vet different companies, and compare various options.
First and foremost, it’s important to have a clear understanding of what waste management companies can do, and how they can improve the quality of life for your residents.
Waste management providers do a lot more than just haul away garbage and refuse. They can also provide services like on-site sorting, waste audits, odor and pest prevention, and more.
Ultimately, your waste management company should help you improve the residential experience, minimize waste, and improve your bottom line. Accept nothing less as you compare different providers.
Something else to keep in mind is that there are different kinds of waste. For example, there’s industrial waste, construction waste, and the waste produced by residential communities. There are also key distinctions between solid and liquid wastes, and a special category for hazardous materials.
Why does all this matter? Because some waste management companies may be uniquely experienced in addressing municipal waste, or construction waste, but less qualified to deal with apartment complexes. To provide the best experience for your tenants, a company that focuses on residential needs is probably going to be your best bet.
In choosing a waste management provider, you’ll naturally need to keep your budgetary limitations in mind. With that said, it’s also important to remember that a good waste management partner can help you save money in a number of ways. For example, your waste company can:
● Help you promote recycling, reducing the total amount of waste you have to dispose of.
● Allow you to avoid any compliance issues, or fines that can result from improper waste handling.
● Develop waste and recycling management processes that are more efficient, allowing you to reduce some of your overhead.
● Improve the waste management experience for residents, potentially helping you to increase your tenant retention and thus bolster your bottom line.
Before hiring any waste or recycling management company, always ask how they will help you save money.
When it comes to waste management services, you have plenty of options… but not all of those options are equal in quality or in value. It pays to do your homework, and to find the company that’s best suited to help you minimize waste and save money.
