ABSTRACT
The article reports on the use of third-party firms to give medium and small-sized waste management companies a chance to service national retail accounts. Retailers such as Target and Home Depot may strive to offer their customers a high level of shopping convenience, but for moderate-sized waste companies, they can be inaccessible when it comes to contracts. Smaller waste firms can get a chance to service the nearby outlet of a national retailer by working with companies that function in part as middlemen between chain stores and haulers.
