Whether you are starting out as a business owner or have been running a business for a long time, waste management is crucial. The importance of routinely assessing and comprehending your company’s waste and how to keep and dispose of it is something that could be ignored over time. Underutilized dumpsters cost you money where easy savings could be made, and frequently overfilled bins can result in additional fees from your waste management company or even penalties from your council.
So, if you are looking for an effective way to manage your business waste, it is time to invest in quality bins for hire. While you are guaranteed to find an extensive range of waste containers on our website, how do you know which size is right for your business?
The answer to that question depends on the four following questions.
How Much Waste Is Your Business Creating?
No one is more aware of your business’s ongoings than you are as a business owner. However, it is easy to overlook waste and its effective management. So, if you haven’t assessed your business’s waste in a long time, all you need to do is conduct a simple audit. You will know the amount of waste produced daily or even weekly by your business. This way, you will learn how big a bin requires to manage it effectively.
What Type Of Waste Is Produced?
Along with the quantity of waste, it’s critical to consider the kind of waste your business generates. Glass, plastic, and food are recycled substantially more in restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality-related companies than in retail businesses. So, to efficiently manage all of that waste, they need a larger skip bin. On the other hand, a business office may need one small recycling bin for various recyclable goods and a small general waste bin.
How Frequently Are Collections Scheduled?
It seems like a smaller waste bin would be more cost-effective, but that is not usually the case. If your waste bin is quickly filling up and needs to be picked up more frequently, it can be worthwhile to buy a larger container, especially if the waste can be kept for a long time, like dry recycling. Although to avoid overpowering odours or pesky pests, you must schedule your food waste to be collected more frequently. So, if you discover that you are not using the complete volume of the bin, there are smaller solutions available.
Ensure There Is Enough Space For Storage
A final and equally important consideration is where you plan on storing the bin.
● Is the area you plan on storing the bin large enough to accommodate the bin?
● Does your waste collector have easy access to the main road’s bin so they can quickly offload the rubbish?
● Is the location where you plan to keep your outdoor trash container close to your place of business so that you can quickly move your indoor trash?
● Will the trash bin block traffic or put your crew in harm’s way?
