Landlords Are Responsible for Trash Management and Pick-Up Service

How to talk to skeptics about climate change

It’s tough being a landlord. You have a lot of responsibility to your tenants to provide a quality way of life in the building you’re managing. But, the responsibilities of a landlord isn’t just fixing the plumbing or letting people in who lost their keys. One responsibility that is rarely talked about, and that your tenants may not even be aware of, is that you have to provide proper waste management services for your tenants.

Waste management services for landlords

There are many things that you do as a landlord that go unnoticed and unappreciated by your tenants. One of those things is waste management and curbside trash removal. Even having the proper recycling bins is something that every tenant takes for granted. Tenants think that all they have to do is bag up their trash and take it down to the curb on trash day, and then the trash magically disappears. But, there’s a lot more to make sure that your building doesn’t turn into a dumb, and that’s to provide proper trash removal.

Type of trash removal

With every person producing roughly 4.4 lbs of trash per day, running an apartment building with many people will require a more advanced trash management service. You will need to make sure that you have the right number of trash receptacles, as well as recycling bins for every type of recycling. Part of responsible waste management is to help your tenants reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as possible. As a landlord, it’s your responsibility to try to minimize garbage. Not only will this cut back on trash management service costs, but being actively “green” in running your building will help the environment, and teach tenants how to throw out responsibly.

Construction and remodeling waste management

Every landlord is going to oversee renovation projects. Renovations create a lot of trash. Trash that is different from typical household trash. Make sure that you arrange for proper containers, construction waste disposal, and curbside pickup. This will not only keep your workers safe and your workspace clean and hazard free, but, your tenants will appreciate not living in a construction zone while parts of the building are being renovated.
