Our experts know your challenges
90% of businesses overpay for waste and most struggle with issues of unreliable service and illegal dumping, but our experts know the education industry has its own unique challenges. Here are just a few.
The sheer number of students, faculty and staff at some educational institutions can make campus seem like a dense city environment while at other times it can feel like a ghost town. Large events, such as moving day, field days, sporting events, concerts and homecoming festivities also generate large volumes of waste. End-to-end waste providers for educational institutions need to understand how to handle these fluctuating volumes of waste safely, efficiently and affordably.
Educational facilities can serve tens of thousands of people in a given day, generating incredible volumes of food waste. If not dealt with properly, it can cause bad odors, attract pests, create health hazards and result in fines or penalties for failing to comply with regulations. Wasted food sent to landfills also creates more greenhouse gas emissions which can impact your carbon footprint.
COMPLEXITY OF WASTE STREAMS
Areas like labs & art studios as well as general maintenance activities at educational institutions can produce difficult-to-handle waste. This requires specialized handling, storage, and disposal to comply with health and safety regulations. The resources involved to properly deal with this type of waste can be massive in terms of time and cost. A third-party specialist can simplify this process.
