Waste Management Services: 3 Reasons To Go Digital

Posted on

In 2012, Americans generated over 251 million tons of trash; of which, 87 million tons was recycled and composted by waste removal management companies. These companies are constantly offering new methods to reduce waste, to increase the amount of waste that is recycled and composted and to improve the quality of services that are provided to clients. In particular, most waste removal management companies are encouraging clients to go digital with online accounts. If you have been given this option, here's 3 reasons why you should jump on board now rather than wait.

Never Miss a Payment with Online Payments

Paying for garbage disposal is often the last thing that is on your mind, and if you're not careful, you may easily miss a payment or two and be charged hefty fees as a result. When you go digital, you can set up automatic payments. In short, you will never have to concern yourself with whether or not you have paid the bill for this month, and you will never have to worry about late fees again in your life. That's at least one thing off of your plate.

While most waste management removal companies offer several payment methods, the quickest and easiest way to pay your bills is through online payments, as it is basically instant. You can pay with either your credit card or by transferring money after you have linked your bank account, and you will no longer have to worry about delays. If you are accustomed to writing a cheque, you don't have to factor in the bank's processing times any longer. All online payments are secure.

Save Trees with Paperless Billing 

Each year, over 69 million tons of paper and paperboard are used by Americans. Be honest with yourself. How often do you actually open and read all of the bills that are mailed to you? Save the environment by going green with paperless billing. You will be able to access all of your account information online with a click of a button. For example, you can see the balance that you owe and the payments that you have previously made. Unlike with paper bills, you can access your account at any time.

In addition, although you may not have considered it, paperless billing is much more secure. Paper bills can be manipulated in many ways, and your information and identity can be easily stolen, especially if you don't shred your mail before you dump it. Among the 9.9 million identity theft incidents reported each year, most victims had their identity stolen right from their garage bin.

View and Modify Pickup Schedules

Do you ever forget which day is pickup day? Or, have you ever needed to make adjustments to the schedule to accommodate changes in your life? Fret no more. By going digital, you can view the pickup schedules for your residential area online, and you can also make modifications based on your needs and expectations. For example, if you're going on vacation for a month, you can halt the pickup services by simply making a note. In addition to halting services, you can also request for extra pickups if you have a lot of waste to get rid of.


Managing your account with waste management companies is much easier online since there is more transparency. You will enjoy higher quality services that are tailored to your every need, as you have more control over the services that you receive, and you can also reduce your carbon footprint at the same time. If you haven't thought about going digital yet, it is a good time to consider it now.
