If you are looking to manage cash flow and have an operation that has a moderate waste management needs, then you might look at using a dumpster rental company like this one in Toronto (there are many such companies in every city) and arrange a monthly program with them. For example you could have a dumpster delivered for the last week of each month and then load in the waste from your business or operation and have them come and pick up the full dumpster at the end of the week.
If you did this monthly and generally have dry waste, it can be an efficient way to manage waste removal costs. If you have a wet waste flow you might want to manage a weekly rental if your garbage contractor or city service cannot service the volume that you need.
A warehouse dumpster rental is also a good way to keep your aisles and work areas clear of debris and garbage accumulation and, as most people know, it can be part of a safety plan for your materials handling workforce.
Some smaller warehouses have a garbage store that can use a dumpster rental strategy effectively.
