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 grocery industry has its own unique challenges. Here are just a few.
Grocery stores and supermarkets deal with substantial amounts of food waste due to perishable goods, expiration dates and damaged goods. Proper systems and practices need to be in place and strictly followed to reduce spoilage, avoid odors and keep pests away. Otherwise, facilities could face ballooning waste costs, regulatory fines or closure.
Grocers can generate consistently high volumes of cardboard packaging, glass, plastics and metals. This can cause higher waste management costs with overfilled containers, cluttered storage areas and potential safety hazards. Keeping streams separate and contaminant free can be a logistical hurdle with high volumes of varied waste.
