Frequently Ask Questions

How are you going to save me money?

There are many different ways that we save our customers money. We have developed an algorithm that tells us exactly how much your trash weighs based on what your organization does. We use this information to calculate the charges for disposal at your local landfill, and then negotiate a fair profit margin for your hauler. In areas where we already have clients, we have already established market rates for the locations we manage and already have a relationship with most of the waste haulers, so it is really just a matter of getting your rates down to what our current clients are already paying.

Will I have to change my waste and recycling haulers if I enroll in your service?

Our experienced staff will investigate all the options in your area. Most often we are able to reduce your costs while continuing to use your current haulers. If we remain with your current hauler, we will negotiate your rate to match our group rates available to our network of clients.

Who are some of the other Gulf Coast Businesses that you have worked with?

We have worked with thousands of locations across the U.S., but previous Gulf Coast clients would be Wendy’s, Denny’s, IHOP, Applebee’s, Chili’s, Golden Corral, KFC, Popeye’s, Sonic, Village Inn, McGuire’s Irish Pub, Fudpuckers, Sacred Heart Hospital, West Florida Hospital, Life Care Nursing Home, Trademark Properties, Andrew’s Institute Research Foundation, and Gulf Eagle Building Supply.

Will I still be charged all those extra variable fees that my current vendor bills me each month?

Your new invoice will only have one service fee and that amount will remain the same as long as your trash service does not increase. No more fuel surcharges, environmental fees, regulatory costs, administrative fees, overage charges, etc (See example).

Will we have a single point of contact available 24/7?

Yes. You will no longer have to figure out who to call when a question or urgent need arises.

When I need to speak face to face with our representative, what is the typical turnaround time?

It is in both of our best interests to meet ASAP, so we will schedule a visit with you within 24 hours.

How long will it take for us to see at least a 10% savings?

Your savings will begin within 30 days and on average will increase to about 15% as we continue to learn more you and the opportunities that will best suit your needs

What do we need to do to take advantage of this opportunity ASAP?

All we need to get started is a copy of your most recent invoice and contract for each location, as well as a signed Letter of Authority to begin working with your current vendor on your behalf.

My waste hauling is handled by the city. Can you help me?

Yes! Areas where there is only one available waste hauler are referred to as franchised markets. Franchised markets offer a multitude of options for savings. Our staff will look through the franchise agreements between the city and the hauler to ensure that both parties are within the confines of that agreement. The research staff here can also determine if there are specific rebate options for recycling in the area that are specified in the franchise agreement. Our staff will also check into billing from the city to verify that all services invoiced were rendered properly. Using some of our waste flow algorithms, we can determine if the city is overcharging you for services you don’t need. While a franchised area does mean you need to use the contracted hauler, it does not mean that you have to overpay.

"EWS had the ability and expertise to execute 10% savings for our retail shopping center properties the minute that we signed our contract and within 90 days of completing we were saving over 15% per month! He visited our properties weekly and even notifies tenants himself if anything changes. I would recommend EWS to any company that produces waste!"

Small Business Owner

During our free waste evaluation Cary corrected an extra charge by our current vendor that would have more than doubled our normal monthly fee. As a busy business owner, it's nice to know someone is watching over this area for us and our invoice charges won't change each month anymore.
