Using the on-demand capabilities of the RTS app, WeWork’s operations team promptly requested services for bulk removals, which eliminated the need to self-manage their hauling.
The app enabled WeWork to send photos of materials to be discarded. This allowed RTS to determine the necessary equipment to service the request and to identify opportunities to donate items for re-use, instead of hauling them to a landfill. RTS’s sophisticated tracking capabilities and network of trucks made it possible to simultaneously coordinate pick ups at multiple locations in the same geographic area.
Since waste removal needs spanned the company’s locations, RTS provided a single point of contact for service requests and consolidated each location’s invoice into one accounting statement for simpler and more effective communication.
WeWork’s unique focus on creating fun, forward-thinking and communal work spaces provided an opportunity to advance sustainable practices across its locations. RTS partnered with building operations teams to offer employee and customer training on recycling best practices. RTS also initiated a composting pilot at the company’s New York headquarters to help it achieve compliance with new recycling laws and standardize programs across its portfolio of locations.
