Tip 1: Don’t try to handle it internally
While most teams realize right off the bat that they don’t want to try to undertake a hauling and recycling project themselves, there are always a few that consider tackling everything themselves.
Unfortunately, hauling and recycling is rarely the type of project that makes sense to handle internally for companies and other organizations.
The logistics, vehicles, and team members needed, combined with the need to try to figure out the process from scratch typically ends up costing too much time and effort for most teams.
Tip 2: Partner with a reputable team
Instead of handling hauling and recycling projects internally, it’s almost always more efficient to partner with a strong team, but it’s also important to make sure the team is trustworthy and dependable.
At Direct Resource Management, many teams in the area choose us for hauling and recycling project precisely because we’ve built up a strong reputation over the years with a strong overall rating on customer review websites like Yelp, so you know your project will be handled with the attention and care that it deserves. You can also rest assured that choosing a reputable team like ours can help ensure that the items you provide for hauling and recycling are processed in an environmentally friendly way, whereas teams without any reputation or a negative reputation may not follow such best practices.
Tip 3: Broaden your horizons as much as possible
While you probably have a set of items in mind already, make sure you try to maximize the efficiency of your project by thinking as broadly as possible. It’s much more efficient to process as much as you can in one project rather than need to repeat the process with several smaller projects.
To provide an example, many people we talk to know about what their own team needs to have hauled and recycled, but often don’t consider the needs of other teams at the company or other organization. You may need to partner with your IT or operations team to help get all teams on the same page at your company, but it will certainly help maximize the efficiency of your hauling and recycling efforts.
Tip 4: Consider intellectual property and data destruction
If you’re hauling and recycling office equipment, chances are intellectual property or sensitive data will be involved, or both.
When it comes to proprietary products, prototypes, designs, or data like employee data, customer data, or sensitive communications, it’s important to ensure all items and data are destroyed fully in a way that cannot be recovered by competitors or other parties in general.
The most convenient hauling and recycling solutions like ours at DRM will always help you ensure such intellectual property and private data are destroyed properly to minimize the chances of any unwanted exposures.
Tip 5: Don’t delay and anticipate the future
Don’t wait around, as old inventory can become a liability if left to sit around. Give us a call or send us an email and we can help you get started right away. We can even help your team plan for the future by scheduling recurring recycling health checkups, so get in touch with us today to see how our team can help you solve your hauling and recycling needs.
