A Waste Audit Can Save you Money

On average, we can capture 20% or more in sustainable savings, rebates, and credits at most trash hauling service locations.
Why Isn’t My Bill Consistent with the Original Contract I Signed?
Here are some of the most common reasons your hauling bill may not be consistent with the contract you signed:
Seasonal or Other Service Increases
Property managers are often unable to judge or calculate their volume requirements and how many days of service are needed. Oftentimes, your needs may change. For example, you may need more service during cherry blossom season for which you added more service days. Naturally, when you change your service frequency, your unit cost will change. This is a perfect example where your contract didn’t take into account that your service needs may increase short term but then your service levels are not restored to their prior levels. Tracking service level changes then becomes your responsibility and you may not have the time or resources to keep on top of it.
No matter how slight the overage is, if your container is overfull, you may pay an additional weekly fee of $150 or more. Neglecting to add another day of service or requesting another container can be very costly.
If none of these variables have changed, your bill shouldn’t result in higher overall costs.
How Much Does a Waste Audit Cost?
There is no cost for the initial assessment related to discovery and captured savings.
How Do I Begin?
All we need is a copy of your most recent hauling invoice. If our initial assessment confirms what we already know about your trash costs, we will prepare a savings agreement to secure the anticipated savings, credits, and refunds.
Should you decide to enter into a waste savings agreement with us, we will share quantifiable savings month-over-month 50/50 with you. Our aggregate buying power pairs our customers’ waste volume with the waste volume we collect on a national basis. Due to actual volume, density and the strong relationships we have built for over 60 years, TOG is afforded steeper discounts and is able to pass discounts onto its customers that they wouldn’t be able to achieve on their own.
