Juan Gutierrez is a Business Analyst for Ben E. Keith Company in Austin. He was given the task to research the company’s current waste and recycling programs. After looking into their existing service, he found that they were not compliant with Austin’s new Universal Recycling Ordinance requirements. This pushed Juan to start shopping around to find the best option for adding recycling services. After doing further research he realized they were significantly over-paying for their current service plan, which only included trash removal, not recycling.
WastePlace is the first automated online marketplace for the waste and recycling industry. We offer a national network of fully insured and vetted waste haulers. WastePlace allowed Ben E. Keith to request a quote for a new service, and receive bids back from local haulers who could service their Austin location. Ben E. Keith was able to compare rates, service ratings, and easily lock in their service with a new waste provider. WastePlace not only helped Juan save Ben E. Keith an astonishing $28,000.00 over the course of the 36 month contract, but also helped them become compliant with the Austin Universal Recycling Ordinance.
WastePlace Allowed us to see all of our options with a click of a button. They not only saved us a lot of time and money, but also helped guide us in the process of becoming compliant with Austin's URO.
