“The solid waste and recycling savings (> 40%) that we’re realizing for our Sonic Drive-In stores from the various changes HWS has made is very close to the projected savings from your initial audit. Your company obviously knows how to deal with the trash and recycling vendors, as you successfully replaced existing vendor contracts at the majority of our stores by negotiating new contracts. We at PVG also like having HWS monitor the trash/recycling invoices each month to ensure that we’re not paying even $1 more than we should.”

“I’m very pleased with how you’ve helped our 56 Arby’s stores in eight states. Your audit was very detailed and, as promised, unobtrusive. Your recommendations made sense and were implemented without any issues. From your detailed negotiation of our trash and recycling contracts we recognized that your company really understands the business. We of course like the savings to our monthly P&L, and we also appreciate the time and thus overhead that you’ve saved our management staff."

why your company likely throws away between 20-40% too much money for solid waste (trash) and recycling service:


  1. Trash and recycling vendors have an inherent conflict of interest, which contributes to businesses typically overpaying by 20-40%. Trash/recycling vendors want to make as much profit as possible, not provide their customers with the most efficient and least expensive service.

  2. Equipment, service, waste disposal, and recycling options exist which many trash and recycling vendors do not disclose to their customers.

  3. Businesses rarely have in-house staff with the expertise, resources, and time to identify, implement, and maintain trash and recycling cost savings.

  4. Trash and recycling service contracts are notoriously one-sided in favor of the vendors.

  5. A surprisingly high percentage of trash and recycling invoices have errors and overcharges which go unnoticed and uncorrected.

  • Restaurants

  • Food manufacturers/processors

  • Hotels

  • Supermarkets

  • Manufacturing/industrial facilities

  • Retail stores

Our compensation is risk-free and straightforward: we simply share in the savings that we create for your company, so we have every incentive to realize maximum cost savings for you.
