Sustainability for Convenience Stores
Achieve a Zero Carbon Footprint & Increase Sustainability
Convenience stores are working hard to integrate sustainable practices into all of their everyday business operations. In 2011, Convenience stores, utilizing waste brokers and managed trash haulers saved enough energy to power the state of Texas for a full year. Convenience stores through partnerships with retail waste management firms and trash brokers sent less waste to landfills, recycled more plastic, and provided customers with fifty five million more reusable bags – all while stocking and selling more products than ever before. Convenience stores using competitive waste haulers committed to making the world a better place, and they are just getting started. Convenience stores and neighboring counties are working together in an effort to implement convenience store recycling, lower dumpster costs and continue to conduct waste audits and study waste outsourcing in order to keep consumer prices low.
Lincoln Waste Solutions works with managed haulers to conduct a complete waste audit to calculate your waste spending. The key to Lincoln Waste's success is in the 10%, in writing, guaranteed minimum savings that we offer to convenience stores. Whatever your waste spend was last year...we guarantee you we will bill you at least ten percent less this year. We help by right-sizing you. Many companies are reevaluating their waste management pickups and dumpster placements and dumpster rentals and roll-off rental usage in order to eliminate unnecessary bottom line overruns that could be costing them- and the environment. The public can dispose of their trash and recyclables while stopping to fuel up their vehicles. Dumpsters are always available so consumers can clean their cars, and the rental dumpsters are then emptied by competitive waste haulers.
There has long been a concentration on residential recycling and this is moving over to convenience stores where they are learning the art of trash management and waste optimization. However the need to offer recycling in such high traffic areas, such as convenience stores, is increasingly evident and convenient stores will need managed haulers to provide consolidating billing after a cost savings analysis to insure rate control by the waste broker and trash brokers.
In continuing efforts to promote environmental sustainability throughout the industry, Lincoln Waste Solutions is a member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), an organization that provides a medium for companies to share knowledge and experience, expand sustainable development, and voice company positions on relevant issues. Lincoln Waste partners with organizations such as the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, the Sierra Club, the National Recycling Foundation, and the American Council on Recycling and Repurposing. Lincoln Waste Solutions carries out its business in compliance with the environmental, health, and safety principles of the American Forest and Paper Association. We conduct routine evaluations as well as waste audits and invoice auditing to confirm the status of this compliance and to monitor all of our client's environmental management systems.
