The Best Ways To Handle Waste Disposal At Your Campground5 min read

When dreaming about owning your own campground did you ever think getting rid of trash would be part of your working routine?

If you didn’t, don’t feel bad, most don’t. The thing is that campers need a lot of “stuff,” especially if they’re camping over a few nights. And as you probably already know, they leave a lot of stuff behind; leaving your trash cans packed to the brim.

That’s why in this article we’re going to discuss the best ways to handle waste disposal at your campground so that you can get on to more important tasks. Let’s get started.

Have Trash Bins Readily Available

It may feel like some campers act as if they have a bomb in their hands when trying to get rid of their trash. If they can’t find somewhere to put it within 10 seconds, they’ll drop it and leave it on the ground.

In the vast open space of a campground, it’s important to have trash cans readily available for campers to use. Now, we’re not saying to have a trash can at every corner but having a large waste disposal or dumpster in recreational areas and near bathrooms are important to avoid overfilling and will help lower pollution on your campground.

Hire a Maintenance Team

Hiring a maintenance team is a quick and easy way to make sure your campground is always in immaculate shape when campers come for a visit.

With a maintenance team working day in and day out managing clean-up, trash removal, and outdoor work, you will have more time to focus on more pressing issues while your campground is ready to handle a day full of visitors.

Hire a Trash Removal Service

If you’ve got large amounts of visitors from month to month, that means your trash bins are filling up quickly. And that amount of trash can be overwhelming.

Hiring a trash removal service will ease your mind. Working with junk services to periodically pick up and remove trash from your campground will avoid the stress of trying to figure out what to do with all the garbage on your campground.

And now it’s easier than ever. With services like WastePlace, you can quickly find and get quotes from the best trash removal services in your area and have your campground waste disposed of in no time. Gary LaBreck, the CEO of WastePlace says, “Business owners already have too many things to be stressed about. The last thing they should be worrying about is who is going to take out the garbage.”

Hiring a trash removal service is a great way to take care of waste disposal without worrying about when and how it’s going to get done.

Use Efficient Garbage Disposal Tools

If you find yourself buried in heaps of trash, then using industrial-sized tools may be necessary. Using a compactor will condense large amounts of trash into smaller areas. Using a baler is also another option. A baler will compress great amounts of waste disposal into a small bundle.

This method will also reduce the amount of required trash removal service or trash pickup in and around your campground.

Outdoor Maintenance Service

Not all waste disposal is necessarily human-made. Many times, outdoor debris can be a serious problem at a campground. Having an outdoor maintenance service is crucial for outdoor cleanup and enhances the overall experience for your campers.

With an outdoor cleaning service, you can avoid the pile-up of brush and improve the safety of your customers on your campground.

Conclusion

Finding solutions to get rid of large amounts of trash wasn’t part of your dream campground owning experience but it’s a reality of the business.

Don’t let it bog you down or stress you out. If you use a few of the examples mentioned above, it will help you manage trash disposal efficiently so that you can focus your time on the more pressing issues.
