How to Choose the Best Garbage Disposal Provider

At First Class Waste, we know that some businesses and homeowners find it difficult to distinguish between the good and the bad when it comes to choosing a garbage disposal company. That is why we have put together some simple tips on how to choose the best garbage disposal provider.

4 Things to Consider When Choosing a Garbage Disposal Provider

If your business is looking for an efficient waste removal provider, you need to find a company that is going to look after your needs, keep your practices within government regulations, and provide services at a cost-effective price. Here are 4 questions to ask any potential waste removal provider before you sign up for their waste management services:

1. Where and How Will the Waste be Disposed of?

Asking this question will help ensure that you are being accountable for the responsible, ethical, and regulation-compliant disposal of the waste generated by your business or household. If waste is found to be disposed of in an illegal or unethical way and traced back to you, claiming ignorance of how your garbage disposal provider works will not save your reputation, or save you from penalties.

2. How Will the Provider Deal with Different Types of Waste?

Most businesses and households generate a wide variety of different waste types, and each of these needs to be disposed of in a different way in order to remain compliant with regulations and reduce landfill waste fees. Before hiring a waste management company, it is important to know how they will deal with these different types of waste. Some garbage disposal companies might provide you with a range of bins for different types of waste, while others might offer a comingled waste bin or front load split bins where almost any waste can be added.

3. How is the Provider’s Customer Service?

Finding a company with friendly and helpful customer service can be a struggle, but it is important to make sure that you look into several options such as referrals and online directories to choose the best waste management company for your specific needs. A few things to look for when choosing a garbage disposal provider include:

  • Positive customer service reviews online
  • An informative website with regular updates
  • Proper insurance

4. What Tools and Equipment Does the Provider Have?

The sizes and number of trucks that a waste management provider has will help you identify whether or not they are capable of performing professional garbage removal services for your company. When choosing a garbage disposal provider, you can enquire and confirm the type of tools and equipment they use to collect garbage, and the number of trips they make to complete the task.
