What You Can Learn from Your Restaurant's Dumpster

Knowing what goes into your restaurant's dumpster can not only be enlightening, but can save you wasted money. But few owners and their staffs have the time or inclination for dumpster diving. A writer from the waste industry says here that waste analytics services is the solution.

Managing your waste services using data from your dumpsters provides needed reliability and accuracy to help restaurants achieve an average of 10 percent in waste management cost savings after implementing service.

On average, 9 percent of trash collections are missed, and 21 percent of current service levels need adjustment. Haulers use GPS geofencing to monitor when trucks enter into a service area to confirm pickups, but this doesn’t ensure that a pickup actually happened. — Geoff Aardsma, VP of client service, Enevo, via Fast Casual
