Unit 8: Success Stories
  • A couple of changes can really make a difference! This bottle depot operator noticed that it took customers 45 to 60 minutes to return their containers on the busiest day of the week – Saturday. By making two changes, this operator reduced wait times to 10 minutes and increased volume 15% in just one year! What were the changes? Educating the customer how on to count containers so they could count along with staff and offering the customer both walk-in and drive through service.

  • Working with hospitality businesses and educational institutions has paid off for this bottle depot. A few years ago, they made a decision to send a truck to collect containers from a small group of customers. Word-of-mouth promotion was very powerful and soon other similar organizations demanded the service too. In the first year, business grew at a rate of $20,000 per month – $240,000 in total!
