Managing a waste facility is a challenging job. You have to constantly juggle budgets, staffing, regulatory changes, and competition from other facilities. Sometimes, you need a helping hand.
That’s where we come in.
We can provide management consulting and support during times of transition.
In addition to the wide range of consulting services offered by BRS, our staff can also provide interim management services at a wide variety of facilities. With the help of our proprietary efficiency tools and combined experience of our consultants, we can provide organizational training, improve efficiency, assist with interviewing/hiring new management, and improve overall operations.
Often, a waste facility will take a step back, and run the numbers to determine if they should continue running their facility, or outsource to a private contractor. We can provide a third option: temporary interim management. Let us come in and assist with managing your facility during a period of transition.
During our time at your facility, we can help your business improve by looking at the entire operation, from management, staffing, operations, maintenance, and more. We can also provide strategy development, long-term planning, budget review, closure consulting, and more.
The staff at Blue Ridge Services has more than 75 years combined experience in the industry. Our consultants and engineers have worked with hundreds of facilities around the world to help them increase efficiency, improve safety, and create a better management structure.

We are not accountants. We’re engineers who just happen to have practical, nuts and bolts experience in waste facility operations. And we’ve been developing common sense waste facility budgets for over 20 years.
How much does it cost to operate a particular machine? Should it be repaired, rebuilt or replaced?
Which days of the week make money …and which ones don’t?
Should you close one of those small, rural transfer facilities …or open another?
We believe that a budget should identify every cost associated with every activity. That kind of budget becomes a tool …for making decisions …for cutting costs …for managing the facility.
We can evaluate your operation from top to bottom, looking at equipment, labor, site development, planning, airspace utilization, soil usage, surface water management, safety, litter control, etc. If it’s part of your facility’s operation …it’s covered.
The current industry environment is changing rapidly. New technologies, new environmental standards, and increasing competition make it increasingly difficult to run an efficient operation.
But change also provides great potential for growth.
If your facility is struggling to keep up with your competition, we can help. Our experienced team can provide management consulting services to identify what’s working – and what’s not – so you can focus on the big picture.
Training is often an integral part of evaluation and organizational change. In a time of change, convincing your staff to buy-in can be challenging. We have worked with many facilities to develop site-specific, practical training that eases the transition and presents operational improvements in a hands-on way.
