To ensure container volume, amount, and number of pick-ups for each material type is accurate and appropriate to the generation of materials.
Evaluate all containers to ensure appropriate size and schedules are in place. Implement a strategy for the periodic review of these containers and adjust container sizes and pick-up frequencies with service provider accordingly.
Physical observation of the container prior to hauling can be used for open containers. Review of certified weight tickets can also be used to compare the actual weight of containers to the potential volume. The evaluation should cover an appropriate period of time to adequately address temporal variations in material generation and pick-up schedules. Trash/landfill containers should be reallocated to storage areas or used for reusables, recyclables, or compostables.
