5 questions to ask to obtain cheap waste collection!
QUESTION #1: Can you provide pricing now?
•A reputable company should be able to provide pretty accurate pricing on the phone or in person –i.e. based on number of bins, access and frequency. They should not really need to do a site inspection or come to visit you to provide a “free quote”. There will be some caveats such as access and height restrictions.
QUESTION #2: Do I need to to sign a long term contract?
•Many companies will want you to sign a long term – and sometimes multi year contract for them to start providing bin services. Think – is there any real benefit to you; the customer in this context. As a bin company does not have to provide any expensive equipment etc to you – there should really be no need for a long term contract.
QUESTION #3: Do I get charged by weight in the bin?
•General waste is usually disposed of at landfill based on weight – thus the heavier your bins – the more you will usually pay. You should know what weight (or average weight) the price you have been quoted is based on – and if you will be charged more if your bins are heavier. You could be quoted an artificially low price based on a very low weight – then get hit by excess charges. Note: Waster does not charge excess charges in 99% of cases.
QUESTION #4: Are you properly licensed?
•This is vital – if the supplier is not licensed, then you really are risking your business. The company should be able
to describe their operations and facilities – and provide evidence of certification etc.
QUESTION #5: Can I get a discount if I book other services?
•Yes. Of course you should ask for a better price and also a discount if you book other services such as recycling
bins or grease trap cleaning.
It does not have to be super difficult – but asking a few simple questions will help you organise the cheap waste collection you need for your business.
