ID-100166768-300x300In today’s tough economic climate, businesses everywhere are trying to do more with less. Many companies are hiring internal or external auditing teams to turn their business upside down and look for any way possible to cut operating costs. One area that is often overlooked on the P & L statement is that of trash service. Business owners do not typically look at their waste management dumpster and see dollar signs, even though they may see green.

ID-10066154-300x199Different businesses have different needs, and determining the best trash compactor to fit those needs is how Global Trash Solutions got our start. Before moving on to consulting for over 1,400 locations, we were the reseller of an indoor trash compactor called the GTS 1000. This compactor was perfect for quick service restaurants. It was about the size of a standard refrigerator – the right size to fit into the back a restaurant with very limited space. We helped our clients find room for them in over 150 restaurants. This model was great because the type of waste these restaurants produce is extremely light and easy to compact. Our clients started saving upwards of 60% on their trash bills, and today our clients save a total of over $2,145,000.00 annually! (more…)

ID-100184116-199x300Do you own a grocery store, retail chain, furniture warehouse, manufacturing facility, or stockroom that produces enough cardboard to fill more than one dumpster per week? Are you overwhelmed by the amount of cardboard packaging material that lines the floor of your facility's offloading area after you receive a large shipment? Do you pay over $130.00 per month to have cardboard dumped? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, you should probably consider purchasing a cardboard baler for your business. Balers are the most environmentally responsible solution for large volume cardboard-producers. It is estimated that for every loose cardboard dumpster emptied, 2.5 pounds of diesel air pollution are generated. Also, most haulers will not reveal this, but much of what they pick up is considered "contaminated" by the time it reaches their sort facilities, and is dumped in landfills even if it is labeled as "recycling."

ID-10066142-300x199Waste management consultants are businesses and individuals that help companies develop the best possible solutions for trash disposal and recycling processes. Business owners have so many responsibilities that finding the most economical and environmentally-sound way of disposing of their businesses waste products does not always make it to the top of their list. Many companies hire waste management consultants as a resource to help with ISO or LEED certification, or simply to help them save time. Professional waste consultants exist in a variety of forms; some function as brokers, while others may have worked for hauling companies in the past and have developed enough expertise to function as an independent waste consultant.

ID-100224091Waste brokers are companies that take on the responsibilities of a company’s waste collection and disposal processes. Brokers do not actually pick up the trash themselves, but instead become a middle-man between the waste hauler and the customer. They handle the collection of all types of materials including municipal solid waste (MSW), medical waste, and recyclables such as cardboard, plastic, glass, organics, and aluminum.  Some waste brokers also offer other services such as property maintenance, snow plowing, plumbing, power washing, and grease trap pick-up.
