WASTE AUDITS

WASTE REMOVAL & PROCUREMENT

 

Service contracts present with waste removal, like utility bills, can contain costly errors.  While refunds are less common, monthly cost reductions can be much more substantial than with an energy audit. In fact, in some instances our auditors have been able to create more than a 60% reduction in monthly costs.

 

There are innovative, new ways and programs in specialty waste and recycling that create cost efficiency which most businesses never take advantage of. In waste removal there are options such as volume vs. weight based pricing, frequency of pick-up and container types, sizes, etc. Usually, the options that would make the most amount of sense are relatively unfamiliar territory to facility managers. If your current provider made these recommendations for you then how can you be sure they are not maximizing their profits and not your efficiency?

CASE STUDY

WASTE AUDIT

COMMERCIAL OFFICE / INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

Overview: A commercial property owner, frustrated by dealing with a city-mandated monopoly waste hauler, hired Util’s professionals to look for alternatives. The property had been paying for needless, expensive city service for years and neither the city nor their monopoly hauler offered alternatives or suggestions. In fact, both the city and their monopoly hauler actively discouraged any changes. This large location was zoned as office/industrial and had a number of small businesses, warehouses and light manufacturing on site.

The company’s owner appointed our team as the property’s exclusive waste management agent. Our professionals reviewed applicable state, county and city ordinances to determine what could be done to improve the situation. As part of the process, we performed a month-long waste characterization study at the property. It was determined that a significant amount of waste could be diverted to collection for recycling. Further research revealed state law specifically permitted the collection of materials for recycling—even though both the city and its monopoly hauler had failed to notify the owner of this option despite repeated requests.

Results: Based on state law and the findings in the waste characterization, our team reduced solid waste service levels and instituted recycling at the property. Both the city and their monopoly waste hauler complained about the change and challenged its legitimacy. We produced the waste characterization, related documentation from state law and rulings from the Department of Environmental Protection supporting the change. The city and their waste hauler then accepted the change and made the alterations as requested by our experts.
