Have Your Trash Bags Save Your Company Money

Have Your Trash Bags Save Your Company MoneyMost businesses think carefully about their inventory of janitorial supplies. They analyze every item that is purchased, think about the product’s usefulness and carefully plan an inventory of cleaning supplies for the business space. But trash bags are something you throw away. And what you throw away goes out of sight and out of mind. But the truth is that trash bags play a vital role in the maintenance facility management department. They also play a key role in the overall hygiene and health of the business.

There are a few ways that you can save money with the trash bags you buy. If you put a little thought and effort into your business’s trash bags, you’ll see the effect on the bottom line.

Set Up a Waste Policy

Most businesses pay for a trash bin. If you generate more trash than the bin can handle, then the business has to pay for the excess trash. So why not setup a recycle bin next to the trash. Then you can tell your employees that they are expected to adhere to a recycling program. This will put less trash into the bag and likely save you money.

In fact, you can even find the environmentally conscious employees in the office to setup a comprehensive recycling effort. You may have a worker or two volunteer for the responsibility.

Buy Strong Trash Bags for Compaction

Space inside the trash bin is limited. You want to have the strongest trash bags possible so that your janitors can compact the trash. Once a trash bag is closed up, your staff can manually crush the bags to better fit in the bin. If the bags are weak, they will break and reduce your staff’s ability to compact the garbage. Buying strong bags online and in bulk will save you money.
