|Winn Dixie“Considering the scope of our company, (900+ locations) one can only imagine the significant costs incurred with waste disposal for all of our sites including retail stores, distribution centers and manufacturing plants. They (EWS) have delivered on the promised level of savings and we look forward to even greater savings in the future. I would not hesitate to recommend EWS to any company looking to significantly reduce costs associated with waste disposal”
Scott Smith, Sourcing Manager
|Coca Cola®“Engaging EWS to reduce our waste disposal and recycling expenses at our Coca-Cola facilities has certainly been a win-win experience. Your detailed understanding of our various waste streams and recyclables coupled with your expertise on issues such as transportation and labor costs have enabled us to save thousands of dollars in this important expense area.”
Cliff Blakemore, Shipping & Warehouse Manager
“We clearly need all of the cost savings measures you have implemented on our behalf, and we couldn’t have done it without your expert touch and inside understanding of the waste disposal and collection industry. These savings will go a long way to help us improve our financial performance in 2004 and beyond.”
David Korn, Director Corporate Environmental
“After extensive research from our McDonald’s Restaurant Execution and Facilities and Systems Departments, including in-depth reference checks, on-site visits and various financial analyses, EWS has been selected as a new McDonald’s national vendor for waste services to drive costs out of our U.S. Owner/Operator Organizations.”
“Not only did you substantially reduce our costs at these facilities but in addition uncovered a past overpayment and secured a sizable refund for us as well. I would highly recommend your consulting firm to any business that is looking for an immediate way to reduce their solid waste expenses.”
“They were meticulous in collecting the necessary invoices, contracts, and survey data during their initial study of our restaurant portfolio. We found their recommendations practical and durable and after our approval they promptly implemented the changes.As aresult we are now saving over 25% from our previous solid waste expense and will have additional savings this coming year.”
Dave & Busters
“Since beginning our relationship with EWS, we have discovered there are many areas of saving opportunities we never realized before. We are satisfied with the results we have seen and expect to see going forward. There was never enough time for me to try and achieve the savings that EWS has produced for us. Your staff is always eager to see that our needs are addressed and resolved. ”
“EWS worked diligently and professionally and did not require extensive time from our staff. Their specialized knowledge and insight of the waste industry and their ability to find and implement effective solutions gave us advantages that we would not have accomplished on our own.”
“Thank you for the bottom-line savings your firm provided to the Casino, along with the support provided us here through our growth spurt. You have made yourselves available to tackle all issues with regard to our services and stayed on top of our needs; allowing my staff and me to stay focused.”
LSG Sky Chefs
“EWS uncovered money in billing errors, overcharges, and service inefficiencies that we had no way of knowing existed, much less how to correct them. Deciding to hire EWS yielded not only significant financial rewards, but also, operational efficiencies that exceeded our expectations, making EWS one of the truly successful vendor/partners who we feel contributed the most this year.”
“Your inside knowledge of the industry, alternative approaches and available technology alternatives saved us time and money.”
Harbor Freight Tools
“A matrix was developed by EWS that compared certain same size store characteristics to waste removal levels. Using this matrix, along with site visits at key locations, substantial changes in the service frequencies were implemented by EWS. Lower prices were negotiated for same locators and adjustments in container sizes were implemented at other locations. ”
“The decision to engage your team at EWS has given me total control over solid waste related issues and has provided me with the mechanism I have been looking for to truly “manage” all aspects of this necessary service requirement. The integrity in which EWS has implemented this project has been above reproach. ”
“Last year I authorized EWS to perform a cost reduction audit for my company. Given the large volume of donations that we receive and our complex waste streams, waste disposal is a significant and ongoing expense for us. You found numerous inefficiencies and overcharges, thus saving us a substantial amount of money. Thank you for delivering what you promised. I recommend your service to Goodwill organizations and to other businesses who wish to save both money and time.”
Riesbeck’s Food Markets, Inc.
“When I turned over the information on our waste and recycling services I wasn’t sure what to expect. I did learn that some of the local vendors that were telling me I was getting the best deal/rates was not true. I also learned that EWS digs into past history and looks at any overcharges and understands the governing regulations within my area. ”
Universal Pool Company
EWS has worked many long months, dealing with 11 different waste haulers and a multitude of issues. I especially liked the part where I did not have to pay until you proved to me you could finish the work.”
Wabco Transit Division
“We are now enjoying substantial savings in our waste disposal expenses – and substantially improved recovery and revenues for our scrap-recycling program. Your local affiliate has made himself available at a moments notice and has given me an extension of our own internal resources. It is with pleasure and enthusiasm that I recommend your firm to other industrial and manufacturing concerns looking to tackle these issues and achieve results.”
“Making the decision to hire EWS was a simple one. If you could save us money on our waste and recycling expenses, we would share it. If you could not, we didn’t owe you anything. Not only did you substantially reduce our expenses…when we needed help on other waste related issues you’ve been available to promptly serve us. I would highly recommend EWS.”
RGT Management, Inc.
“Working in a risk free manner with EWS has allowed us to save thousands of dollars per year. We would not have know about the service inefficiencies and options to save money with waste and recycling without their help and professionalism. I highly recommend EWS to all businesses that are interested in establishing greater profits.”
Prior to engaging EWS we were utilizing the services of a National Service Provider. We believed our services were being managed effectively and our costs were in line with the industry standard. Strategic Restaurants was pleasantly surprised at the results produced by EWS. They found and implemented cost reduction solutions and efficiencies we were not realizing and were very thorough in their conducting research, negotiations of favorable pricing, and overall management of our waste and recycling services. We have been impressed and obviously pleased with the services provided to us by EWS.
SRM Simmonds Restaurant Management, Inc.
“Your waste/recycling audit was detailed and accurate. We’re very pleased with the savings that EWS found (30% company-wide). As promised, EWS continues to scrutinize our trash and recycling invoices. Your company had been very successful in helping other Burger King franchises, and we liked your guaranteed no savings = no fee approach.”
