Vinfen offers a wide range of short and long term service-enriched housing to people with psychiatric conditions. The range covers varying levels of assistance from supported independent living to highly-comprehensive residential settings. They work with people to obtain housing that is integrated with other services through their Community Based Flexible Support and Clubhouses.
Vinfen’s tenants are often moving or vacating the properties, leaving a lot of old furniture and belongings behind. In the past, Vinfen’s Purchasing Manager, had to call around to local junk companies to see who was available to remove the discarded belongings and also to check who could offer the best price, as they aim to get 2-3 bids per project. This took a lot of time, and the purchasing department had to deal with multiple invoices from different companies.
WastePlace is the first on-demand platform for the waste and recycling industry. We offer a network of fully insured and vetted haulers across Massachusetts. Our partners prioritize re-using and recycling materials, which supports Vinfen’s sustainability efforts. WastePlace allows Vinfen to request what they need once, and then receive multiple bids from local haulers who are available to remove the discarded belongings on their requested day. WastePlace has reduced Vinfen’s spend by over 20%, while freeing up staff to focus on higher priority projects.
WastePlace has saved us so much time and money. We can’t imagine managing our waste and recycling without them!
