Are My McDonald’s Restaurants Paying the Same Rates for Trash and Recycling Service?

by Global Trash Solutions

Do you own one or more McDonald’s restaurants? Have you made every effort to lower your bill by haggling with your vendors, separating recyclables from your trash containers, and taking measures to reduce the volume of McDonald’s garbage your restaurants produce, but you still feel that your trash costs are higher than they should be?

If you have been part of the McDonald’s family long enough, you are familiar with the McDonald’s green initiatives, including their 30-year partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund. This partnership led to such green initiatives as the elimination of styrofoam food packaging in favor of recyclable materials and the implementation of reusable condiment pumps inside the restaurant lobbies.

These steps all save franchise owners money on their McDonald’s waste management because they divert from landfills “would-be waste” such as styrofoam and ketchup packets. As McDonald’s and other restaurant chains set higher goals for reducing their environmental impact, franchise owners will rely on new solutions to reduce their footprint.

Reducing the Amount and Volume of McDonald’s Trash

Global Trash Solutions (GTS) has realized through our experience that much can be done to help McDonald’s Operators reduce their trash and recycling expenses outside the scope of what was implemented by McDonald’s Partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund. With over 2,500 franchisee-owned McDonald’s restaurants in our portfolio, we have created comprehensive solutions for McDonald’s food waste management.

We have also created new opportunities for recycling by connecting the dots between supply and demand for the recyclable items that make up the majority of McDonald’s garbage.

We recognize the importance of cost reduction for the disposal of items that cannot be recycled and leveraged out market presence to get McDonald’s better pricing for recycling and garbage collection as a whole. For example, some of our clients were not aware that there were low-cost organic recycling or food waste programs available in their communities, but with our help, they are now diverting items that would have otherwise been sent to the landfill.
