4. More Personalized Approach to Service

 

When working with a large company, it is more likely that you will receive generic information if you call for assistance. Rather than trying to solve a problem specific to your industry, you could just receive surface-level advise.

 

However, if you approach, you Total Waste Management company, that knows your business and has developed your Waste Management System, you will receive more individualized attention. It is the more interactive experience that gives you real insight into your industries Waste Requirements and Proper

Practices.

 

Regardless of what waste company you decide to work with, the liability and responsibility for any waste always lies with the generator. Even if the waste is out of your hands (being transported by a waste management company or awaiting treatment or having been disposed to landfill), your company is still singularly responsible for that waste.

 

That is why choosing the right waste management company is so important. If the company you choose does not abide by current legislation or regulations and mishandles your waste, that transporter can be held responsible–but so can you.

 

A Full-service company is more likely to be properly insured and permitted and make smart, legal decisions with your waste.
