3 Tips To Help You Improve The Performance Of Your Dumpster

Handling the removal of commercial waste can be a challenge for many companies. Since the volume of waste created by a commercial entity is typically greater than the volume of waste created in a residential setting, your company will need access to a dumpster to ensure you have enough space to discard your waste on a daily basis. Dumpsters can serve as a valuable asset when it comes to sanitation, but only when they are used correctly.

Here are three tips that you can utilize to help you improve the performance of your dumpster in the future:

1. Add a trash compactor to your dumpster.

If you are looking for a simple and effective way to increase the amount of space available for waste within your dumpster, then adding a trash compactor to your existing commercial waste receptacle can be beneficial.

Trash compactors work to compress large volumes of trash into small and manageable bales that take up minimal space. By adding a trash compactor to your company's sanitation plan, you will be able to properly dispose of large volumes of waste in your dumpster with ease.

2. Never place liquids in your dumpster.

If you are looking to preserve the performance of your company's dumpster, you should ensure that employees never place containers that have liquid inside of them into the dumpster. These containers can deteriorate over time, causing them to leak out into the dumpster. If these leaks occur during the winter, the liquids could freeze up- trapping trash items inside the resulting ice.

This ice makes it difficult for your sanitation company to properly empty your dumpster, and it could compromise the amount of space available within your dumpster for the disposal of additional trash items. Be sure that only empty containers find their way into your company's dumpster.

3. Invest in a separate dumpster for recycling.

When you want to maximize the amount of space available for the trash produced by your commercial activities, it can be beneficial to invest in a separate dumpster designed to collect recyclable items.

Making the separation of trash and recyclables a vital part of your company's sanitation management plan not only helps you to reduce your carbon footprint, but it can also free up space for more trash and allow you to save money on your dumpster emptying fees by reducing the frequency with which these trash receptacles need to be emptied.

Finding ways to maximize the use of your dumpster will help your company's industrial sanitation management plan be more effective in the future.
