Garbage Collection for Stratas

23 Apr 2020 Waste Disposal

If you are a part of a strata system and are looking for a good garbage disposal company, it is important to know what to look for. There are many waste disposal groups out there and not all of them specialize in garbage collection for stratas. At First Class Waste, we have a wealth of experience in all kinds of residential and commercial waste collection, including garbage disposal for multi-family complexes.

What to Look for in a Strata Garbage Collection Company

If you are looking to enlist the services of a new garbage collection company for your strata complex, it is important to know what to look for in your waste disposal service provider. Some of the things to watch out for include:

Scope of Services

Whenever possible, it is best to go with a strata waste disposal company that has a broad scope of services. Make sure that your company offers both garbage and recycling removal to ensure that you do not have to coordinate between multiple different companies at the same time when it comes to waste pickup.


It is important to know that your waste disposal company of choice is consistent and timely. When you are dealing with the high volume of garbage that is common with strata complexes, you want to make sure that your waste collection schedule is suitable and will be followed by the company you work with. A garbage disposal company with a good track record of being on time is worth working with.

Proper Equipment

Stratas often require more robust garbage collection equipment than other residential or commercial situations. Front load bins and high-volume collection trucks are usually a necessity. Make sure that your waste collection provider is able to offer service with this kind of equipment.

Go the Extra Mile

It is good to have a waste collector who will put the extra effort into the work that is required to maintain a strata unit. With the high volume of people that live in most multi-family complexes, it can be easy for controversy to arise when a job is not done properly or with care. Make sure that your garbage collector will go the extra mile to take care of your property by putting things away properly, cleaning up, and closing lids.
