Podium-style communities are growing in popularity. However, they can pose more maintenance challenges than traditional garden-style communities due to their layout and high density of residents.
Having more moving pieces makes dealing with trash problems more difficult. For example, in a garden-style community, common trash problems include:
- Missed Pickups
- Messy Enclosures
While managers of podium-style communities contend with additional problems such as:
- Clogged chutes
- Damaged chute doors
- Broken compactors
- Faulty deodorizing systems
Managers of any style community can improve the conditions of their trash areas by having an on-site maintenance team deal with the most common trash problems. Hiring waste specialists to help mitigate these problems can be a huge help. These third-party options include porter services, janitorial services, and waste control specialists.
