Reliable Waste Management πŸ—‘οΈ: When it comes to organising reliable waste management, it can sometimes feel like hitting your head against a brick wall! On paper it sounds so simple – you leave your bins out on a set day each week and the garbage or recycling truck comes round and collects them. What you need to understand is everything should be carefully considered before choosing the best of the best.

However, as with all systems and processes, sooner or later, something will go wrong and your bins will not be collected! You will experience this no matter who your waste management provider is as no one can really control certain circumstances that may happen at any given time.

Choosing the most reliable waste management for your business

Never assume picking the right waste management company for you as easy. You should consider a few things first to ensure your waste’s collection and disposal on the right basis. Waster, the “Uber of Waste”, has quickly gained its reputation as one of the most reliable waste management companies in Australia since its founding in 2015. We know a thing or two on what it takes to be a reliable waste management company. So, here are some tips you can consider when choosing:


1. Research the waste management company of your choice

There are a few things you should find out before booking a product or service. How sure are you that they can be trusted with your waste and recycling needs? You can research this by finding out their company website, first and foremost. Waste management companies should put out everything you need to know about them on their respective websites.

Second, you can find any ratings or reviews on their waste and recycling services. You can search for their Google Reviews and Trustpilot profile, for example.


2. Make sure they put recycling as one of their top priorities

If you have read our blog on the circular economy, you should know that we cannot stress giving new life to waste enough because it is just that important for us!

Of course, waste management does not only involve collecting, transporting, and landfilling rubbish. Reliable waste management companies will steer their clients in the right direction and emphasise the importance of recycling. Rightfully so, they have various recycling services they can offer potential clients to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill for the Earth’s benefit.

Waster, for instance, has a wide range of recycling services they offer to businesses – TerraCycle boxes included for the harder-to-recycle items.


3. You will not have a hard time in everything pricing-related

Every business will consider price as one of the top priorities in booking waste collection and recycling services. Always remember that cheap does not mean quality. If you are looking for cheaper prices, then you should also consider high-quality along with it. Waster, as stated above, provides waste and recycling services to small and medium Australian businesses. Moreover, Waster offers 30-day contracts instead of the dreaded long-term ones.


4. You can rely on them when it comes to waste management, of course

Last, but certainly not least, you can/should be able to rely on your waste and recycling provider to get your money’s worth. The booked services should mesh well with your business’s work lifestyle and not become a hindrance. Remember that you control what you want to happen. Schedules should be conceived at your comfort and services agreed upon fulfilled.


Reliable waste management: are there any good reasons why bins do not get collected as scheduled?

In all honesty, even with the best and most reliable waste management company, you will have a missed bin service, sooner or later. Below, some potential reasons for missed bins include the following:


Heavy traffic or building work

If you drive for even one day in a major Australian city, you will realise that traffic can be a nightmare, particularly if or when combined with bad weather.

Reliable waste management

Most garbage and recycling trucks drive at night. But still, traffic can sometimes prevent a collection if there is roadwork, etc. even in the middle of the night.


Cars blocking access

In a similar way, reliable rubbish removal services require the truck driver getting access to your garbage bin. If access is blocked by a parked vehicle, there is few that he can do.


A new driver on the run

Even the most reliable waste management company you might know may experience drivers getting sick or having a holiday break with their family and friends. Moreover, they might employ a new driver with little experience on the road. The new driver in question might have a hard time locating the bin because of unfamiliarity.

This normally gets rectified after the first collection or two.


Human error preventing reliable waste management

You can never discount good old human error.

Someone might forget to change details, enter the service on the run sheet, or run into any other types of issues that can hinder a scheduled bin collection. Reliable waste management depends on a whole chain of communication before any bin ever gets emptied at all!


Mechanical problems with the truck

As you can see in the video above, a garbage truck is a very complex and expensive piece of equipment. It certainly requires constant maintenance. Even then, it can break down which will require repairs to happen on an unexpected basis.


IT issues

Of course, IT issues can also play a part in any company. We see this when there is a glitch in the software or a refresh over a weekend. Thankfully, these issues are rare.


Bin not out!

Even though the truck is responsible for a missed bin most of the time, it is sometimes the site’s mistake for not putting their bins out for collection on the right day or time! So, make sure you take out the bin and place it at the agreed-upon location. It is also important to ensure it has a lock the driver has a key to so that they can easily open and collect the rubbish.


Conclusion on reliable waste management

Reliable waste management and recycling services from the providers is something that should be a given. Businesses should be careful and consider everything when picking who to book, etc. As such, ensuring reliable waste management is not an easy process. When you consider all the issues listed above, it takes just one of them to go wrong to lead to a missed bin collection.


In the defence of truck drivers, it is a very difficult and underappreciated job even at the best of times. Basically, our society depends on them working hard every night!
