Kollect, New Start-Up Company Is The Uber Of Waste Collection
How does the idea of no contracts or yearly fees for waste collection sound?
Or..only paying for bin collections when you demand it, not when your bin company decides? Now you can decide bin day!
Kollect.ie is the Uber of Waste Collection. Launched in December of 2015 this company offers on-demand bin collection , junk removal and skip hire similar to how Uber operates. Uber allows consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request, which the software program then automatically sends to the Uber driver nearest to the consumer, alerting the driver to the location of the customer.
Using a similar ethos and booking software system, Kollect's talented in-house developers have designed a unique system that centres around convenience and ease of use for the customer. It partners with waste collection companies, adding their routes to the online platform, so, when a customer books a collection online, the booking engine simply subcontracts the collection to the next bin truck passing their home.
So what does this mean for customers?
A liberation for certain customers, Kollect is ideal for smaller households who don't generate enough rubbish to justify paying monthly fees. These households are paying for something they cannot avail of fully. Under contract terms, they are putting out half empty bins yet are paying the same as a family of 6. Kollect mainly target people who only need to put their bin out for collection every three weeks or more. This segment of the market currently pay annual fees for their bin to be collected once a week even though their bin is usually only half full or not left out at all. Kollect can save this market up to 40% annually on their waste bill. Their target market includes:
- Small households/People who live alone
- People on waiver schemes
- People with excess waste after a holiday period, party
- Those who generate a small amount of waste. People putting out half empty bins and paying the same as other
- Those who use recycling facilities like bottle-banksPeople in short term accommodation
It also means that you the customer, choose when your bins will be emptied, all you have to do is log onto kollect.ie, select your location from the drop down menu, select which bins you need collected and pay securely and quickly online and Kollect will find the next bin truck passing your house.
Recently Kollect have began a skip hire service utilising the same system, now there's no hassle or fuss around explaining where you're located, you simply type in your location on the skip hire section of kollect.ie and the nearest skip hire company will be directed to you. Booking a skip only takes 60 seconds and if you need a same day skip we can cater for you.
Kollect is an uber example of start-up companies that are using online technology, data and algorithms to vastly improve traditional services, bringing them into the 21st Century.
