If you're looking to set up a new contract with a commercial trash collection service, then you have to choose a company that can collect your business's waste on a schedule that suits you. If you can use one service to take all your types of trash, then that is a bonus.
However, before you sign a contract, it's a good idea to look at additional collection services that you might find useful. For example, some commercial trash companies offer on-demand as well as recurring collections.
How do these collections work and why are they useful?
What Are On-Demand Trash Collections?
Your trash collection company will typically set up a rolling contract for recurring pick-ups with you. So, they come to collect your waste at a set time, often on the same day every week.
However, some commercial waste companies also offer an additional on-demand service. You can use this service to book a special one-off collection at any time. This collection is separate to your regular trash pick-up.
So, you tell the company that you need an ad hoc collection. You also tell them what needs to be picked up. In some cases, they might ask you to send them a photo of the waste so they can bill you correctly for the collection.
Once you accept a quote, you book a collection slot. The company then comes on that day and removes the waste.
Why Should You Use an On-Demand Trash Collection Service?
Your recurring collections deal with your regular business trash. However, there may be times when you have more trash than you can get rid of in one collection.
For example, you might have more waste than you can fit in your bins or you might not have room to put it out on the street. Sometimes, you might collect a lot of items that can't go in your regular collection.
So, if you've recently renovated your offices and replaced all your furniture, then you might have a lot of packaging to dispose of. You also need to get rid of your old furniture. You can't necessarily throw this stuff out with the rest of your garbage, and you might not have space to store it until you find a way to dispose of it.
Here, you simply book an extra on-demand collection and make sure that your waste is accessible on the day. Your trash collection service does the rest.
