Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH OF MY TIME WILL BE REQUIRED?
We require very little of your time in order to engage our service and there will be very little time required moving forward once the savings opportunities are in place. Most of our clients have less than 2-3 hours invested with us, including our initial meeting, gathering the data, and the recommendations meeting.
WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM US IN ORDER TO BEGIN YOUR ANALYSIS?
Very little: current waste and recycling info, a list of your locations, and permission to speak with your vendors should the need arise.
WE REVIEW OUR BILLS AND CONTRACTS ON A REGULAR BASIS. CAN YOU STILL HELP US?
Definitely. Many of our clients have already been proactive and diligent in researching ways to reduce their waste and recycling costs. We have identified savings for over 90% of our clients. Even if you are skeptical of our ability to reduce your waste expenses due to your current, in-house efforts, it does not cost you anything to have Waste Consultants review these ever-increasing expenses.
HOW LONG DOES THE INITIAL REVIEW PROCESS TYPICALLY TAKE?
Our initial review process typically takes anywhere between 30-90 days. The time frame will vary based on your number of locations and the complexity of the waste streams being reviewed.
HOW MUCH IN SAVINGS DO YOU TYPICALLY FIND?
We have reduced our clients waste expenses by as little as 0% and as much as 70%, but our historical average has been in the 20-30% range.
WHAT IF I’M ALREADY UNDER CONTRACT WITH MY WASTE HAULER
That's not a problem. Almost all of our clients' locations are typically under contract with a waste hauler. There are numerous ways to reduce waste expenses while working within the constraints of your current hauler's service agreement.
