For property managers, one of the great benefits to conducting a comprehensive waste audit, benchmarking the various types of waste produced, is that it can take away the guesswork when dealing with waste haulers and processors.

Typically, they will ballpark the amount of waste you will process or haul, and then report back on actuals. Having your own benchmarking program allows you to cross-check their data for accuracy. It also enables you to pinpoint the precise level of service you need – so that you aren’t paying for more than is necessary.

Knowing the precise composition of your waste allows you to get more granular with your requirements – and invariably results in hauling and processing savings. The fact that you know what leaves your building makes the other parties more attentive – and they will act as an alert mechanism to advise you when things change beyond normal tolerance.
