Waste Choices, Australia’s first waste management and recycling online marketplace where providers bid for posted projects has launched.
Through Waste Choices, businesses of any size can post a one-off project or an ongoing contract for the management of over 30 waste streams.
A range of reputable waste management providers across Australia including URM, 1300 Rubbish, Action Waste, Waste 2 Resources, State Waste Services, Bingo and smaller providers will bid for posted projects and businesses can select whom they wish to work with.
Joel Harrison, Co-Founder of Waste Choices said, “Waste Choices simplifies the management of waste by providing businesses the choice and flexibility of working with different service providers to manage various waste streams in a compliant manner. The cost of managing and disposing waste has increased over the years. Waste Choices offers businesses a better way to manage their waste streams by providing more options and access to a wider range of service providers.”
Businesses can post a waste project in three simple steps: entering the pick-up location, type of waste to be collected from general waste, liquid waste, recycling to hazardous materials and selecting a bin size to represent the volume of waste. They will be able to select from a range of competitive bids from 14 national and state-based waste management providers and can award a project based on price or reputation of the provider.
Waste Choices offers an automatic alert feature that notifies businesses that are on annual contracts with service providers when they are about to expire. This avoids businesses getting automatically rolled into new contracts with their existing providers which would generally attract price increases of between 10-25 percent on average annually.
Harrison added, “Many businesses get stuck with their existing service providers because their annual contracts are automatically rolled over. Australia has over 2 million business waste generators and Waste Choices will free them from long term fixed contracts, help drive down the cost of waste management and increase the transparency through a system of bidding.”
