Large Corporate vs. Local Waste Services

Local Waste Service - LePage & Sons - Choose Small Business

Trash pickup service is always going to be a crucial part of your home or business. Unfortunately, there isn’t an easy way to get around a large amount of waste produced each day. Even though you might think choosing waste management isn’t a big deal since every company does the exact service, you might want to reconsider.

When you are choosing a local waste service, you have a few different options. Waste management companies fall into two categories; local and corporate. This quick guide will help you consider the differences between these two options so that you can make the best possible choice for your home or business.

Trash Pickup Service Options

Corporate Waste Management

Corporate waste management services are not always available in every area. You may find that a larger business does not service your area. This can make it difficult to get a new service setup.

Local Waste Service

When you deal with a local waste service, you can rest assured that they know the area and are specifically servicing your area. This can really simplify the entire process of setting up a new service. If you are setting up a trash pickup service after moving, this can really simplify things for you.

Customer Service

Corporate Waste Management

Corporate or large-scale waste management companies will have a centralized office headquarters that could be very far from the area you are actually receiving services. This can make customer service a bit more complicated. This is especially true if you have a complicated or multi-layered problem that you need to be solved.

Local Waste Service

Dealing with a local garbage service gives you personal customer service with people who actually live in your community. These individuals will be personally familiar with the area that is being serviced and may have a personal understanding of the problems you could be facing with your waste service. This can make resolving service issues so much more simple and more straightforward.

Choose The Right Local Trash Pickup

Personal Touch

A good local waste service will not always refer you to online options or a prerecorded automated service. Many waste management issues need a human response. A good business will provide this for you.

Quick Responses

You know you chose the right company if they will provide feedback and responses quickly. This means you will not wait on hold for ridiculous amounts of time. When you have an issue, someone will discuss the issue with you quickly.

Knows the Area (Without GPS)

When you pick a small, local business you’re more than likely choosing people who live in your city or nearby. They understand the back roads as much as the major highways, making it an efficient work process that’s also on time regularly.

Large, corporate waste companies do not have this advantage. As a result, service routes can often get very confused. In return, the trash pickup process gets slowed down over frustration and miscommunication until they learn how to get around better.

Handle Workload

Local waste services tend to have a better understanding of how many addresses they can handle on a weekly and daily basis. Large corporate companies will sometimes focus too much on making huge goals and increasing their numbers instead of really knowing their clients, as well as how much they can handle. Often times this results in poor service.
