What is Waste Management?
Waste Management Services in Greater Sacramento and Sacramento County
Waste management is a very misunderstood profession. There is a popular image of a trash man being uneducated and illiterate. Since it is one of the dirtiest jobs that people usually come into direct contact with, it has an unfair reputation as being a low value, low class job. This actually couldn’t be farther than the truth.
Waste management is an industry that is incredibly necessary in the modern world, and it requires professionalism and expertise. It involves a lot more than just picking up your trash from your dumpster and sending it to the landfill. In fact, if we could recycle all the trash you produce and avoid sending it to the landfill at all, we would be thrilled!
Waste management keeps your homes and streets clean.
If you are like most normal people, you have hardly ever given a thought to what happens to your trash beyond vague notions of recycling, and certainly not to the people who take away your stinky trash for you and make sure it goes where it needs to go. But if we weren’t there, your trash cans would overflow within a day. Within a week, you would have piles of trash around your house and yard. It wouldn’t take long at all for you to be living in disgusting, unsanitary conditions, and for the streets to be filled with trash. The comfortable, clean life that we enjoy is made possible by hard working waste management professionals.
Waste management requires knowledge and expertise.
There are many different regulations and ordinances that different cities have regarding waste. Some cities require that recycling must be free for all residents, and they define how the trash company and the recycling company will work together to pick up all waste. A waste management company must know the laws of all the different cities in the area so as to stay within required parameters when setting up dumpsters and disposing of waste.

Waste management isn’t recycling, but is very connected to it.
We don’t take care of melting down glass and reconstituting it, or sorting plastics by the numbers on the bag of the package. The recycling company does that. But we do concrete recycling, where we crush the concrete into smaller and smaller bits, and the concrete is sorted to make sure that there are no contaminates in it before it can be used to make new concrete, to lay an aggregate base for asphalt, or many other uses.
Here at Advance Disposal Sacramento, we care about the planet very much. Just because some of the trash we handle does have to go straight to a landfill, this does not mean that we don’t do our utmost to make sure that as little trash goes to the landfill as possible.
