It is clear that the amount of waste we generate is among the biggest problems currently being faced by humanity. Despite the fact that about one-third of our waste is being recycled, our landfills are still piling up at an alarming rate, and we will soon run out of places to keep our waste—not forgetting the soil and water pollution caused by these landfills.
The biggest problem is that many of us just throw away the garbage and let the trash collectors take it to be buried. Even the municipal waste management companies only pick the trash up and dump it, when there is so much they could do with it. However, private waste management companies are now taking the initiative to help households and businesses reduce waste. These companies are slowly gaining popularity because of the following reasons.
More Customized Waste Collection Options
Private waste management companies have a complex network of recycling facilities, waste disposal bins, landfills and transfer stations to adapt to the needs of every individual customer—from construction waste to metal to mere yard waste or even that extra waste that you need picking up after cleaning your house.
Environmentally Friendly Waste Management
With a private waste management company, you will never have to take your metals, paper, and plastics to a recycling center. Unlike the municipal waste collectors who simply deposit the waste in a landfill, private waste collectors take some extra steps. After collecting the waste, they sort it out so that they can compost the compostable items and recycle the recyclables. The remaining waste, which is just a small portion of what was initially collected, is then taken to the landfill.
So, a private waste management company is your simple road to achieving a zero waste home or business and help preserve the environment for future generations.
Despite taking the extra steps and being more environmentally friendly, many private waste collectors still offer competitive prices so that you don’t feel like you are being penalized for wanting to take part in the waste management issue.
Hazardous Waste Disposal
Private waste management companies have smart and cost-effective ways to safely discard all kinds of waste materials, including hazardous waste. They also offer bin rental services to their clients to enable them to dispose of this waste as they await collection.
Private waste management companies provide a holistic, accountable and integrated waste management system that meets the needs of individual customers. Their services include the management of waste from the point of generation to its final disposal, and they have a waste hierarchy that guides the ways in which waste should be disposed of. This hierarchy is the basis for all their operations, and it ensures a reduction in environmental impact, cost savings, and sustainable operations.
