WIH Resource Group is open to modifying an alternative project approach and corresponding budget as part of the contracting process with our clients.
Option 1: Commercial Business Customer Surveys - Random sample of Business Owners:
In Commercial Option 1, telephone interviews would be completed among a random sample of business owners. The business owners would be selected randomly from the customer list to be provided by the client. In addition to the substantive survey questions relating to satisfaction and the recycling program, the survey will also include the demographic questions.
Option 2: Commercial Business Customers -
Random sample of Business Owners with an Oversample of select Larger Customers: In this second commercial option, telephone interviews would again be completed among a random sample of business owners with an oversample of larger customers that are known to produce a higher amount of waste/recyclables. The oversample would include institutions such as public schools, colleges/universities, hospitals, large manufacturers, and retailers / retail complexes. Standard Steps in Project Life Cycle
Residential and Multi-Family Housing Complex Surveys - Survey of Property Owner and Managers:
WIH Resource Group Team will complete telephone interviews with each of the property owners and managers (for multifamily, those who have five or more housing units). Multiple callbacks will be made to complete interviews with all of the property owners listed by the client.
OPTIONAL – Focus Group Research Option: In addition to conducting telephone interviews, WRG offers the option of conducting focus groups among selected commercial / business customers and selected property owners or residents / tenants. Qualitative in nature, focus groups offer a much more in-depth discussion of the issues that are to be addressed in the telephone surveys.

Addressing the complex issues that can erode operational performance is one of the biggest—and most important—challenges organizations face today. WIH Resource Group is a valuable partner in optimizing the contributions a company’s operations make to the top and bottom lines. WRG's Operational Performance Review, referred to as the OPA, is an operational efficiency audit – a technical review – of your operations – waste / recycling collections, landfills, recycling facilities, MRF operations as well as your fleet management. It provides you with a practical evaluation of what’s working and what’s not.
How the OPA works
We evaluate your operations from top to bottom, reviewing your equipment, fleet maintenance, labor utilization, facility layout, productivity, safety, litter control, etc. If it’s part of your operations, we assess it for you. Then we measure the productivity of the individual activities using our proprietary operations and financial analysis models and proformas. We present our findings and recommendations to you in a detailed report that provides step by step instructions on how to improve your operation and how those improvements translate into savings for your bottom line.
The Operational Performance Assessment (OPA) is a business improvement process developed by WIH Resource Group (WRG) that offers organizations, in both public and private sectors, the opportunity to benchmark and evaluate their current operational processes, identify areas of opportunity for efficiency and productivity improvements, and develop management programs that foster an increased environment of accountability among front line managers, supervisors, fleet managers, drivers, operators and other key positions of impact to the bottom line. The WIH Team works alongside our clients’ staff in establishing and developing protocols to achieve newly established (and mutually agreed upon) goals.
The OPA was developed and has been refined to meet the following objectives: Implementing permanent tools, processes, standard operating procedures, and best practices that will improve productivity; Creating productivity improvement plans that will roll-up to exceed their current productivity plans and targets; Developing specific plans that empower their front-line managers to positively influence employees’ behavior, improve work culture, drive productivity improvements through improved communications and provide accountability; Improving the quality of WIH’s clients’ revenue through efficiency audits on a customer by customer level to obtain improvement to Operating Margin (Yield), and/or return on capital.
The OPA Key Areas of Focus
Safety – Assessment of adherence to safety policies and / or need to update safety programs
Facilities / Sites – Layout, traffic flow, design, expansion opportunities
People – How are the human resources managed and their productivity
Fleet Management – How are the capital resources managed
Operations – Route Audits and Productivity / Overall operational efficiencies scoring
Financials – Current and future opportunities to positively impact the P&L
Customers - Local market conditions and growth opportunities
WRG realizes our client’s needs are multi-dimensional and that they have to be examined with a “systems” perspective. Best practice solutions aren’t found by looking at one piece of the puzzle. Success is achieved by making sure that each system component works well with the rest of the system. It’s facilities, operating procedures, resource management, fleet maintenance, optimal use of technology, proper pricing of services as well as optimizing collection vehicle and operator performance measures.
OPA past results have yielded between 5% and 30% improvements for our clients in the areas of productivity and profitability, depending on the line of business, senior management support and the ability to positively influence staff and employee behavior. WIH does not use a “cookie-cutter” approach and works together the Clients’ key stakeholders to provide specifically tailored solutions in the areas that are of most concern and that are mutually identified as areas of the greatest opportunity for improving the bottom line (profits) and cutting costs. The OPA process brings tremendous benefits to our Clients’ solid waste operations and management team.
Aligning & Transforming Your Organization’s Culture, Talent, & Strategy
Aligning your corporate culture, structure, and talent with your business strategy is challenging, complicated, and necessary. Strategic shifts such as new products, services, market expansion, evolving growth strategies, new corporate initiatives, technology, new leadership, or mergers and acquisitions, all impact your most valuable asset, your people. WIH Resource Group’s Organizational Change Management Team can help your organization become aligned with the critical changes required for success. We work across the entire organization, offering business-oriented and data-driven solutions to drive your organization’s specific agenda to achieve the highest impacts and sustainable business results.
What is OCM?
Organizational change management (OCM) is a framework for managing the effect of new business processes, changes in organizational structure or cultural changes within an enterprise. Simply put, OCM addresses the people side of change management.
A systematic approach to OCM is beneficial when change requires people throughout an organization to learn new behaviors and skills. By formally setting expectations, employing tools to improve communication and proactively seeking ways to reduce misinformation, stakeholders are more likely to buy into a change initially and remain committed to the change throughout any discomfort associated with it.
Successful OCM strategies include:
Agreement on a common vision for change -- no competing initiatives.
Strong executive leadership to communicate the vision and sell the business case for change.
A strategy for educating employees about how their day-to-day work will change.
A concrete plan for how to measure whether or not the change is a success -- and follow-up plans for both successful and unsuccessful results.
Rewards, both monetary and social, that encourage individuals and groups to take ownership for their new roles and responsibilities.
Organizations do not change, people do.
When your organization undertakes projects or initiatives to improve performance, seize opportunities or address key issues, they often require changes; changes to processes, job roles, organizational structures and types and uses of technology. However, it is actually the employees of your organization who have to ultimately change how they do their jobs. If these individuals are unsuccessful in their personal transitions, if they don’t embrace and learn a new way of working, the initiative will fail. If employees embrace and adopt changes required by the initiative, it will deliver the expected results.
Three Levels of Change Management
1. Individual Change Management
Individual change management requires understanding how people experience change and what they need to change successfully. It also requires knowing what will help people make a successful transition: what messages do people need to hear when and from whom, when the optimal time to teach someone a new skill is, how to coach people to demonstrate new behaviors, and what makes changes “stick” in someone’s work. Individual change management draws on disciplines like psychology and neuroscience to apply actionable frameworks to individual change.
2. Organizational/Initiative Change Management
Organizational or initiative change management provides us with the steps and actions to take at the project level to support the hundreds or thousands of individuals who are impacted by a project.
Organizational change management involves first identifying the groups and people who will need to change as the result of the project, and in what ways they will need to change. Organizational change management then involves creating a customized plan for ensuring impacted employees receive the awareness, leadership, coaching, and training they need in order to change successfully. Driving successful individual transitions should be the central focus of the activities in organizational change management.
Organizational change management is complementary to your project management. Project management ensures your project’s solution is designed, developed and delivered, while change management ensures your project’s solution is effectively embraced, adopted and used.
3. Enterprise Change Management Capability
Enterprise change management is an organizational core competency that provides competitive differentiation and the ability to effectively adapt to the ever-changing world. An enterprise change management capability means effective change management is embedded into your organization’s roles, structures, processes, projects and leadership competencies. Change management processes are consistently and effectively applied to initiatives, leaders have the skills to guide their teams through change, and employees know what to ask for in order to be successful.
The end result of an enterprise change management capability is that individuals embrace change more quickly and effectively, and organizations are able to respond quickly to market changes, embrace strategic initiatives, and adopt new technology more quickly and with less productivity impact. This capability does not happen by chance, however, and requires a strategic approach to embed change management across an organization.

Geographical Market Focus
WIH Resource Group’s (WRG) Wasteshed Market Radius Studies & Reports capture all waste disposal operations within a given market. They provide you with analysis of the major players by market share;show historical trends in pricing, waste disposal volume and disposal capacity specific to the geographic area included in
the radius of the study.
Detailed Data on all Public and Private Players
A basic report includes a detailed listing of all landfills, transfer stations, waste-to-energy plants, materials recovery facilities, construction & demolition facilities, composting facilities and others operating within
a mileage radius of a particular point. A spreadsheet and map depict eachfacility and provides details such as the name, location, size of the facility, the daily volume and price charged for each type of wasteaccepted, days and hours of operation, transportation access (rail, road and waterway), distance from the center of the study area, capacity, the names, addresses and phone numbers of the owner and operator, and much more.
Formatted to Help You Understand the Wasteshed Market
The map shows each site in relation to the others, major roads, cities, county boundaries, states, rivers and other geographic boundaries. In addition, to the detailed data in the spreadsheet and map, the report is formatted as a book and provided in Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf) format that can also be provided in hard copy.
Historical pricing and volume and capacity data for each facility
WRG and its partner researchers have surveyed the industry since 1991 and consequently can provide very detailed historical data on each facility, including those that have subsequently closed, going back that far in time. The historical data on pricing, volume and capacity give you valuable insight into how the local market is trending, how the market share among each of the players is changing, and the extent of all those changes over time.
Waste Generation, Recovery, Net Export and Disposal within the Market Study Area
Clients have the option to add an analysis of local market characteristics. The total volume of waste and recyclables generated within the study area are estimated using the latest Census Bureau statistics and known per capita discard rates. The volume of waste moving through recycling facilities is combined with local state recovery rates to estimate total recycling for the study area. When subtracted from waste generation, we have post-recovery waste volume which we compare with volumes going into local landfills and waste-to-energy plants to determine how much locally generated waste is either being exported to other regions or how much waste is being imported from other regions.
Wasteshed radius report gives you thorough understanding of the market, the key competitors, regional dynamics, average pricing, waste generation, recovery, and disposal particular to the area. Each facility profile is organized by state and type of facility to make it quickly accessible and useful.
Historical data on pricing, volumes and capacity are also available and can be added to reports to show the evolution and dynamics of the market over time.
Transportation Cost Analysis
WRG also provides additional services relative to Wasteshed Market studies such as developing transportation cost estimates for transporting waste from specific locations, as requested for an additional cost. Transportation cost estimates can be developed for truck, railroad and barging of wastes and recyclables. Our cost models / pro formas provide scenarios from origin locations to real or hypothetical destinations in order to compare costs for market transport and disposal conditions.
The price of a basic 100-mile Wasteshed Radius Market Report described above is $1,700. The price varies depending on whether the client desires a larger study area or requires additional statistics and more in-depth analysis.
Turn Around Time
Most Wasteshed Studies / Reports can be completed in under 30 business days depending on the particular market or whether additional data is required. Our staff can give you an estimate once all study parameters are clarified.

As a result, we share our first-hand knowledge with WSI clients to reduce waste management costs.
Frequently, when working with new Clients, Waste Savings, Inc. will conduct a waste audit. This entails analyzing a customer’s current waste volume and habits to look for ways to streamline their collection services, make things work more efficiently, and save money. Basically we review what they are throwing away, and how.
As part of the waste audit, customers provide information about the contents of their waste stream, a copy of their current contract and access to their facilities so we can do the analysis.
As a result of the audit, WSI often finds that there are items in the waste stream that can be recycled, which could create cost savings for the Client. The assessment also helps determine which Waste Savings Services would best fit the needs of the Client.

When confronted with a solid waste challenge, WIH Resource Group can help find a creative, innovative, practical transportation and disposal solution for you. Across North America and Internationally, WRG offers extensive experience in Wastebyrail that we offer to cities, counties, states, companies, manufacturers and others dealing with everything from landfill closures to toxic waste spills.
The WRG Team has a proven and extensive record of providing project management oversight (facilitation) for landfill & WastebyRail and facility designs, WastebyRail Programs, fixed and rolling stock equipment procurement, development of specifications to insure the design proposals are cost effective, accommodate local styles and architecture, and offer value added features. Some of the value added features include assessments that landfills & WastebyRail designs are functional and are tailored for our clients’ specific operations and budget.
Our prior and current clients include both public agencies and private sector with transfer facilities that process between 400 and 6,000 tons per day including several WastebyRail intermodal facilities. This includes facilities with a range of load out techniques including top load with bucket loaders or overhead grapples into gondola rail cars, lift-and-load intermodal container, partially depressed loading, full tunnels and rear loading preload compactors.
Working closely with the railroads, site clean-up projects are carefully coordinated to meet client deadlines. WIH Resource Group works with a wide range of both the Class One Railroads and short line railroads for the transportation and logistics management, rail car leasing companies for rail cars, and a host of large disposal companies with rail served sites that own and operate landfills that are either Subtitle C or D permitted.
Partner landfills accept a variety of waste streams including non-hazardous oilfield waste (non DOW), non-hazardous Industrial solid waste, special waste, commercial waste, domestic and municipal solid waste and hazardous wastes (Subtitle C site only).
In addition, WRG conducts feasibility studies for clients interested in Wastebyrail programs that may be unsure as to whether shipping waste by rail is economically viable.
WastebyRail Infrastructure & Equipment Components
A wide range of equipment is necessary for insuring a successful WastebyRail program.
The following list of equipment is provided to depict the types of equipment necessary
as well as its purpose in the operations that WIH Resource Group will develop equipment
specifications for procuring as requested by clients.
This list of equipment does not include basic WastebyRail and landfill operating equipment.
It assumes existing working transfer stations and landfill are operational and possess
the necessary basic equipment to sustain operations, independent of a WastebyRail program. Therefore such things like truck scales, front end loaders, landfill compactors, etc. are not included in this list of equipment, however WIH’s team can provide support in this area as well, both in specifying equipment and procuring it for clients.
Of critical importance is to note that most of this equipment requires redundancy (backup) or duplicate equipment to prevent system downtime that could result from primary equipment being out of service. Some of the equipment is considered optional, however they are highly recommended for improving operational efficiencies and reducing transportation costs. Here is a short list of some of the equipment necessary and some of which are optional for a successful WastebyRail program:
Here is a short list of some of the equipment necessary and some of which are optional for a successful WastebyRail program: Railroad Cars - Gondolas or Flatcars (for intermodal containers);
