We’re all looking to save a buck or two, wherever we can. Saving money on your weekly curbside trash pick-up will double the reward. To reduce your trash bill, you need to reduce your waste. By reducing waste you are not only saving money, but you are also saving the planet.
Reducing your trash bill
Your monthly trash bill is something that we never think about until we become homeowners or business owners. All of a sudden there’s an extra expense that you’ve never had before. Instead of just transferring the trash services from the previous owner and accepting the bill as an unavoidable expense, do a bit of research. Waste management companies are competing against other companies just like in any other industry, so the first step to reducing your trash bill is to know your options for trash pick-up services.
Compare trash services
The waste management companies in your area are all going to have various services. Compare each waste management company and the services they provide to see where you get the most bang for your buck. At Sunrise Sanitation we offer the following services to our customers:
Residential Trash Services – On top of weekly curbside trash pick-up, our residential trash services includes two (2) bulky items to be disposed of and picked up each month. That is huge, as most households don’t think about how often they have something big and bulky they want to toss. With our services, you won’t have to pay extra for these pickups.
Business Trash Services – For our business accounts, we pick up your recycling and provide dumpsters in various sizes to meet your needs. We even have bear-proof dumpsters, which are essential in many West Virginia and Maryland neighborhoods.
Reduce your trash output
The next step to reducing your trash bill is to reduce your trash output. The less trash that needs to be picked up, the lower your monthly bill. Find ways to minimize waste by being a conscious consumer.
