When it comes to procuring trash bags for your business, you have two options: buy can liners in bulk or visit a store to purchase can liners. For some business owners, the convenience of quickly walking into a store to grab a box of can liners may be the preferred solution.
However, savvy business owners who enjoy creating cost savings turn to AAA Polymer to buy can liners in bulk for the best prices. Whether you’re looking for a new vendor or are on the fence about purchasing trash bags in bulk, you’ll find the following information helpful.
Undoubtedly, the number one reason to buy can liners in bulk is the cost savings. When you buy anything in bulk, you will typically reduce the per-unit cost, which means you’ll get more for your money. In addition to the actual per unit cost, you’ll also save on shipping costs and/or fuel costs. In contrast, buying in smaller quantities means you’ll pay more per unit, pay more in delivery costs, and potentially incur other costs.
Buying can liners in bulk can have substantial environmental benefits. Bulk-packaged can liners use less packaging than several individual purchases, which makes it the eco-friendly alternative. In addition, buying bulk can liners will reduce the number of delivery miles attached to the product. And when you contribute to the use of less fuel and less air pollution, we all benefit.
If your business currently has any Green initiatives — like a stretch film recycling program — buying can liners in bulk can be the perfect complement. Considering how green initiatives are a huge selling point for a growing number of customers, you can strategically use this to your advantage.
Far too often, businesses who purchase can liners on demand fail to have even a relative idea about the overall costs of can liners. When buying can liners on demand, business owners and facility managers simply purchase can liners as needed— which may be every few days, once a week, etc.
Regardless of how decentralized your purchasing tasks are, you should take every possible advantage to cut costs. A well-executed bulk can liner purchasing strategy will empower you to do just that. When you buy can liners in bulk, you’ll begin to strategically understand the expense, how often it occurs, and ways you can potentially lower it.
Although you may have a great relationship with the cashier at the big box store, they will rarely ever offer you industry insight and add value to your business.
