Tired of people dumping all over your property?

GLakesDumper2Trash may be worthless, but it still costs money to get rid of it, and sometimes people try to avoid the cost of disposing of their cast-offs by leaving them in dumpsters that someone else is paying for (you, perhaps?).

That’s what happened recently at a client’s property – or rather, what almost happened. Our CV technician observed a white pick up truck pull up to the dumpster in the rear of the property. The driver stepped out and was getting ready to dump a king sized mattress on the side of the dumpsters. The CV tech made an audio callout letting the driver know that dumping is illegal and that his license plate number had been recorded. The trespasser quickly picks up the mattress, reloads it back into his truck, and leaves.

And that’s one less hassle and expense for the managers of the property to have to deal with.

 

Illegal drug use caught on video

When people use illegal substances, unpredictable behavior is often the result, which is why our security technicians are trained to be alert to any kind of suspicious activity and act on it immediately.

That’s what happened recently when a CV tech noticed a man crouching down behind a dumpster. Suspecting that the trespasser was doing drugs, he called out to the suspect over the security system speakers. When the CV tech got no response, he notified police, who arrived on scene a few minutes later and arrested the suspect.

The police arrest people after a crime has been committed. Our mission is to intervene before suspicious activity turns into a serious crime.

Who knows what’s waiting for you when you take out the trash?

Taking out the trash is a pretty routine chore, but sometimes it can get interesting fast – and not in a good way. Imagine taking the trash out late at night at the end of your work shift and startling a homeless vagrant sleeping in the dumpster!

Employees whose job involves taking trash to dumpsters in any environment need to be cautious when doing so in case there is a vagrant sleeping in it or going through the garbage. This could potentially lead to a variety of negative situations, such as robbery, assault, etc. Vagrants can be unpredictable – harmless in some cases and violent in others – so caution is always called for.

We were reminded of this important caution this week when a CV technician spotted a vagrant taking up residence in a dumpster and notified police before anyone else came into contact with him, preventing a possibly dangerous situation. The police cited the vagrant for criminal trespassing and made sure he left the property.

Not only does our monitoring service help diffuse these situations before they turn into a serious criminal act, employees can have additional peace of mind by using our visual escort service or scout ahead service. Our technicians can be contacted by employees at any time and ask to be watched over as they leave the building and go to the dumpster and back. Employees may also have the technician scout the route to the dumpster ahead of time to ensure that nothing out of the ordinary is present.

Networking in style

We had a blast attending the Waste Management Open last week. It was a great way to network and continue our relationships in a fun atmosphere! Here are some photos, mostly from the 16th hole skybox.
