It's done! You've signed a contract, compiled a list of sites and number of waste bins at each, and set a weekly pickup schedule with the hauler. You have all your ducks in a row, how could anything go wrong?
Mother Nature has a fun theory about that.
Picture this: a few feet of snow have fallen, covering about half of your waste bins. Naturally, your bins are in the back of a building, possibly accessed only by a small driveway or alley just big enough to fit a truck. The roads are plowed, and have pushed snow onto the sidewalks right in front of or on top of your waste containers creating an additional barrier. What does this do to your pickups? It throws the proverbial wrench into a meticulously planned schedule.
It is important to specify how inclement weather affects your contract. Regardless, missed pickups due to weather will cost you or your hauler who has to reschedule. If the bins were full the day of the missed pickup, there is a good chance there will be an overflow and potential for a fantastic feast for wildlife, not to mention the health department.
