Waste Plan Metrics

Managing expenses requires details. When you consider your waste removal expenses, you probably have little to no information about your costs or usage, except at a summary level. Most companies cannot answer these basic questions: 

  • What services are we paying for? 
  • Are we paying the right amount? 
  • What is our usage? Are we over-serviced? 
  • How do our costs break down by line item? 
  • How do our costs compare to market rates and like companies?

This lack of transparency is by design. The less information you are given, the less power you have to control and reduce your costs. Waste invoices don’t tell you how many cubic yards or tons of waste are being picked up, so you can’t determine if you are being over-serviced. They don’t itemize your costs, making it impossible to know what you are paying for each service and if you’re paying the right amount.

Cass shifts the power from the waste hauler to you. Stated simply, we do this by (1) extracting and aggregating data about your costs and services from your contacts and invoices, thus enabling detailed visibility into expense details, and (2) leveraging our geographically-specific knowledge of market rates as well as buying power with national and regional waste haulers. With these advantages, we renegotiate contracts and optimize your service plans to drive immediate and sustained savings.

Cass Reporting Delivers Visibility

Cass clients receive detailed reports that shed light on their waste services and expenses. These include: 

  • Savings Performance Report – Within two billing cycles of partnering with Cass, most clients have already reduced their monthly costs. Our reporting will explain how our initial negotiations and service optimizations have reduced your costs. 
  • Service Analysis Report – This report provides a detailed breakdown of your service plans and fee structures. It clearly explains your contracted services, aggregated and itemized service costs, actual waste volumes and characterization, recycling volumes, equipment in use and service schedules, and cost per cubic yard. 
  • Bill Error Credit Report – When you know your invoices are being audited to the penny, mistakes are being detected, and Cass is requesting credits for overcharges, you know that you are paying the right amount.
