Case Studies: What we do works
Case Study 1
Results: An annual savings per property of over $10,000.
Retriever Waste Management recently conducted a waste and recycling services RFP across 150 luxury multi-family properties.
Retriever’s dual objectives were to:
- Ensure that each property was receiving customized waste and recycling services proportionate to its needs.
- Achieve the most competitive rates available.
Upon completion of its evaluation and competitive bid process, Retriever captured over $1,500,000 in annual savings at those properties surveyed, resulting in an average annual savings per property of over $10,000.
Case Study 2
Results: Monthly rate adjustment from over $2,100 to just $715.
Retriever recently undertook an analysis for a new customer operating 45 restaurants throughout the United States. While reviewing each location’s invoices and contracts, Retriever discovered that one location was being overcharged by more than $1,385 per month in a city where the local government establishes the maximum trash and recycling rates.
Retriever contacted the city and its hauler and obtained a credit retroactive four years earlier for over $47,000, in addition to securing a permanent monthly rate adjustment from over $2,100 to just $715.
Case Study 3
Results: Correctly identified the market rate to be $525 per month from $1,840.
One of Retriever’s clients acquired a multi-family property three months into a 36-month agreement with its hauler paying over $1,840 per month for its front-load trash. Retriever correctly identified the market rate to be $525 per month, and secured a hauler willing to perform the services at this rate. Because the property stood to save over $43,000 over the remaining 33 months of the agreement, it exercised its early termination option even though this triggered liquidated damages in excess of $11,000. The numbers made sense.
