The Benefits of Choosing a Local Waste Service
Updated: Jun 26
Choosing a local waste management company is important for a number of reasons. At BVR Dumpsters, we work hard to provide a flawless waste management service with a familiar face. Although we service multiple areas of central Texas, we put a very high value on local trust. We know that there are several types of waste disposal services to choose from when you’re making a decision for your business or project. We strongly recommend choosing a community based service.
Better customer service: At BVR Dumpsters we often have a better understanding of who our customers are and can provide more personalized service and support.
Convenience: Our local waste service is typically more convenient for projects and businesses because they are located nearby and can provide regular pick-up times.
Cost-effective: Local waste services can be more cost-effective than larger, national companies because they don't have to cover as many overhead expenses. This is especially true for BVR!
Environmentally friendly: Our local waste service is typically more environmentally friendly because we use fewer resources and produce less pollution to dispose of your waste appropriately.
Support local economy: Using local waste services, like BVR, can help support the local economy by keeping jobs and money in the community. A total win-win!
Community awareness: At BVR, we have a vested interest in the communities that we serve and we can educate and raise awareness among our customers about environmental issues and waste reduction.
While the idea of a waste service broker might be appealing because of their loud marketing tactics, we want to bust the myth on the idea of this being a more convenient or economical option. Waste broker services are companies or individuals who act as intermediaries between waste service providers and businesses or municipalities that need waste management services. These brokers typically have relationships with a variety of waste service providers.
Here are five downfalls to using waste and recycling brokers:
There is typically no local person to deal with
They use a third party to provide the containers, dumpsters, and transportation
There is almost always a price markup to cover that third party/ middle-man instead of going direct to the local provider
Your service and communication will be much quicker if you don’t have to go through the broker
Using local providers supports local businesses that provide jobs in your communities
Again, choosing a local waste management company is important for a number of reasons. Using a local company can help support the local economy by keeping jobs and money within the community. They also tend to be more responsive to customer needs and concerns. Finally, local waste management companies are more likely to have a vested interest in the community and the environment, and may be more committed to sustainable practices and reducing their environmental impact.
