Waste collection: Telecommunications

Your business will need at least one telephone line to contact customers and disposal facilities and to handle general enquiries. You may well decide that you need business mobile phones as well as land lines as you and your drivers will be spending a lot of time away from your base while collecting waste. Once again, there are many different deals available offering different options and payment plans to the user.

It's important to have internet access and an email address. A website is a good way to advertise your business and the waste collection services you offer.

The telephone company will bill you every month or quarter for the calls you have made, often plus an amount for the line rental for the next quarter.

Many different internet service providers (ISPs) offer internet connections and email accounts. Shop around to find out what the best deal for you would be.

Various packages and discount structures are available to business users, which can help to reduce telecommunications costs. Contact your telephone company's customer services department for details.
