Have you ever looked at your waste invoices and thought: This is way too complicated!
Maybe you have dozens, even hundreds, of locations. Maybe you have stacks of hauler contracts, all with different service providers and terms. It can be near-impossible to monitor invoices - much less review service efficiency!
Jeff Holoman was well aware of this. As president of Partnership Property Management, he had multiple waste vendors and different contracts for all 250 of his company’s properties.
He wanted to find a way to streamline his disposal process. He was spending over $800,000 on waste disposal per year, and Jeff knew he could do better.
We helped Jeff fix his waste worries - permanently. Our exhaustive analysis showed exactly where the gaps were in Jeff’s current waste management model. We presented resolutions to every problem we found.
After we got Jeff’s go-ahead, we renegotiated hauler contracts for many of the properties, and made sure that pricing was regulated. We also ensured that PPM was getting ideal contract terms that were actually in their favor - not their haulers’.
As a result, PPM saved over $100,000 each year on their waste expenses.
Jeff no longer overpays on waste expenses, and he can rest easy knowing that current and future problems have been eradicated. Our on-going billing audit services ensure that their invoices are accurate, so their savings are secure.
Jeff was thrilled - he wrote us,
“I would like to thank you for your continued service and vigilance on our behalf. It is comforting to know that we have a trustworthy company monitoring the complicated nuisances of our waste contracts.”
No matter how complicated you think your waste situation may be, there is absolutely recourse for you.
You don’t have to be held hostage by confusing contracts and an onslaught of invoices. Investing just a little time in learning the ins and outs of your contracts (or how to renegotiate your contract!) will help you pinpoint exactly where there are shortcomings in your current waste management process.
Knowing the problem is the first step to solving it - and in this case, it’s also the first way to find savings you’re currently sitting on!
