Apartment Waste Management: Picking a Better Vendor

As any property management company knows, the key to happy tenants is for everything to happen on time. And one of the most obvious and important services is apartment waste management. Like all good services, it’s nearly invisible to residents when it’s working properly. But when it fails, you’re going to hear about it. If this has happened to you, it’s time to change. Learn more about what you’ll need to consider when picking a better waste management vendor for your complex.

What to Look for in a Waste Management Vendor

While price may be foremost in your mind, looking at other factors—namely experience—is important to get the best service. Here are three things to keep in mind when considering quotes.

  • An Established Business: This one is more significant of a factor than people think. You want a company that has seen everything and has the institutional knowledge and experience to deal with your specific circumstances and needs.
  • Large with a Truck Fleet: Size is also important. You need to make sure that if you suddenly need more service, they have the capacity to match. It is also important if you need mixed curbside and dumpster hauling, as each needs different trucks.
  • A Local Company: Much like capacity, you’ll need a quick response if you suddenly need more removal or an emergency strikes. Dealing with a company based across the state means they will be unable to respond quickly since their trucks are already miles away.

Other Considerations: Recycling and Compactors

Of course, garbage pickup services aren’t the only thing to consider. You’ve also got recycling to deal with, and, at large complexes, one or more trash compactors might be needed to be serviced and maintained.

Taking a Look at Recycling

How does your apartment complex handle recycling? From curbside bins to dumpsters to compactors (see below), make sure your single-stream recycling is being handled as well as your garbage service. This includes having signage of what can and cannot go in recycling available for your tenants.

Do You Need to Use a Compactor?

Compactors are useful for large volumes of trash. One compactor replaces the need for several dumpsters, saving space and improving the aesthetics of your apartment complex. Compactors can also be used for single-stream recycling, which is perfect if you’re generating more of that than your dumpster can hold.
