Waste management Canberra: as it is Federal Election campaign in Australia, Mr Waster thought it would be an opportune time to publish a blog post on our beautiful national capital. After all, given that they have to put up with pollies all the time, the least Canberra businesses deserve is low cost and reliable waste collection services. In this blog we will highlight three quick methods that businesses and organisations who need to arrange their own garbage and recycling providers can easily put in place to save money and increase flexibility. Also check out our step by step guide to Sydney waste management.

 

We will try to not be like a politicians election promises and get straight to the point. You can insert your own joke for the picture above – something to do with hot air and politicians should be fine! Here are those three easy to implement tips:.

 

Tip 1: Get a flexible contract to decrease your business risk

 

There really is not reason for Canberra based businesses to be signing up to long term waste management contracts in 2016 – unless off course the perceived stability such a contract offers them is seen as valuable. All Waster Canberra waste management and recycling agreements are flexible 30 day contracts. That means that you can exit a contract at any time by providing us with 30 days written notice (and yes an email will suffice).

 

Waster commits to only increasing prices once a year (as a maximum) unlike some suppliers who may increase them twice or more. After all, if our customers can leave us at 30 days notice, it is best not to treat them badly!

 

Tip 2: Compare your waste management Canberra rates online – get competitive rates

 

The Australian Capital Territory does not currently impose a waste levy on waste disposal Canberra at landfill. This means that waste prices are notably lower than in New South Wales, particularly than Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong. That being said, it is only sensible for smart businesses to check the market as to competitive pricing for services.

 

You can access up to date information from the ACT EPA through our waste resources page. This page provides useful links to relevant information and helpful resources for boosting your recycling and minimising your waste services costs. For example, the Actsmart website is a very useful website providing sustainability tips and assistance for businesses and organisations in the Canberra region.

 

On waster.com.au – you can check all your service pricing in real time through our waste services online shop. You can compare the prices and also book online in a secure online transaction.

 

Your second option to compare rates and work out how much you could save is to request a free 24 hour free cost comparison for waste management Canberra services. Waster will reply to you in a guaranteed 24 hours detailing exactly how much you can save by moving to our flexible, customer focused model.

 

Tip 3: stop paying rental fees, hidden fees and add ons

 

The third step is make sure you are not subject to any hidden fees or costs you did not expect. For example, numerous waste collection services companies in Canberra charge additional fees on top of the collection fee. Charges could be described as site fees, bin rentals, environmental fees, admin fees or anything else really.

 

If your current invoice includes charges like this, you really should consider finding a way to avoid them. After all, the waste collection charges can be expensive by themselves!

 

It is good to know that the Waster model does not have any additional charges. You can find a full listing of what is included in our collection charges on our waste pricing page but we can summarise by saying that you will pay exactly what you have signed up for and not a dollar more.
