VenueSmart offers waste hauling management to all of their clients, which entails directly procuring the hauler if there is not one already in place, obtaining multiple quotes to ensure the best combination of quality and pricing for service, managing the waste hauler in order to free up the operations team, and ensuring maximum waste diversion efforts. VenueSmart also has national accounts with some of the nation’s largest haulers which allow us to obtain preferential pricing. VenueSmart will provide a waste diversion report including weigh tickets, diversion rates, and marketable statistics post event. As detailed further in our Sustainability section below, VenueSmart also utilized the EPA’s Waste Reduction Model (WARM) to calculate and report (if desired) additional Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reductions and achievements.
All too often the cleaning company is unaware of the waste hauling fee schedule. This disconnect can lead to costly overages via tonnage or extra hauls. By having first-hand knowledge of the hauling plan, VenueSmart can monitor dumpsters to ensure they aren’t being pulled to early, pack dumpsters full if not being charged for tonnage, and ensure the proper materials are being placed in the proper dumpster – landfill vs. recycle vs. compost, if applicable.
VenueSmart will work with the client on proper dumpster placement, create dumpster location maps, and provide a load-in schedule for the equipment to arrive on site. Together with the client, a plan will be created well before the event.
VenueSmart has a proven history of saving clients significant dollars all while freeing up valuable time during a busy event.
