S&S Waste: Boosting Success with PlanHub Integration

Boosting Success with PlanHub Integration

“I genuinely appreciate the effort your team has put into creating such a visually appealing and functional user interface.” Victor Martinez, West Coast Sales, Manager, S&S Waste



S&S Waste, founded by Sheldon Mickelson in 1987, initially faced financial struggles but quickly grew under Sheldon’s management. After parting ways with his temporary partner Steve, Sheldon took the reins and propelled the company forward. Through innovation and determination, S&S Waste evolved from manual waste collection to pioneering the Grapple System for construction debris removal, solidifying its reputation as a leader in the industry. Today, with over 80 employees, 50 trucks, and a sister company called In & Out Portables, S&S Waste serves more than 10 counties in Florida, delivering exceptional service and maintaining its position as the industry’s top choice for waste removal.

S&S Waste is a reputable company located in West Palm Beach, Florida. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, they specialize in providing dumpsters for construction companies. One of their unique approaches is the utilization of grapple trucks for waste removal, which allows for direct emptying into the truck, saving valuable time for their clients.

Notably, S&S Waste stands out by manufacturing its dumpsters and offering custom-made grapple trucks, ensuring the highest quality and tailored solutions for their customers. Their services encompass dumpster rental, waste removal, and waste management, catering to commercial and residential projects. However, they primarily focus on commercial projects, demonstrating their expertise in this area.

“We give everyone who works with us direct access to the sales manager, the dispatch team, and even the drivers,” said Martinez.

Their commitment to exceptional service is evident through their emphasis on open communication and a personal approach to building customer relationships. To enhance communication and operational efficiency, they provide direct access to the sales manager, dispatch team, and drivers, ensuring smooth coordination throughout the project.

Like all companies today, S&S Waste also faces some challenges. 

One of the construction industry’s challenges is maintaining effective communication with all parties. As a company that provides dumpsters for construction companies, transparent and efficient communication is crucial for ensuring smooth operations and meeting the specific needs of their customers. With numerous projects and clients to manage, it can be a challenge to maintain consistent and timely communication throughout the process. 

Another of the ongoing challenges that S&S Waste faces is the need to adapt to today’s rapidly evolving technology. As advancements continue to reshape the lead generation industry, the company must navigate the complexities of staying up-to-date with emerging technologies.

“I’m trying to stick with jobs that are probably 20k square feet or more, our parameters are 25k plus, but you know, there’s some leeway there,” said Martinez.

Finally, their last main challenge is targeting suitable projects. S&S Waste faces the challenge of targeting suitable projects that align with their capabilities and meet their minimum value requirements. While they primarily focus on commercial projects, it can take time to identify and secure projects that fit their expertise and business model. The construction industry can be highly competitive, and finding projects that meet their criteria while balancing profitability and operational capacity requires careful consideration. S&S Waste aims to target projects with a minimum of 20,000 square feet but also maintain some flexibility. They need to strike a balance between pursuing projects that meet their financial goals and ensuring they have the necessary resources to serve their clients effectively.

Despite the challenges they face, S&S Waste has proactively addressed them and taken measures to overcome these obstacles. The company has made significant strides in enhancing its communication services, ensuring that customers receive top-notch service. Additionally, S&S Waste has adopted PlanHub, a lead generation platform, to streamline its business processes and expand its reach. They are also actively pursuing projects that meet their criteria, focusing on securing high-value contracts that align with their capabilities. Through these efforts, S&S Waste is determined to overcome its challenges and succeed in the industry.


“PlanHub is highly user-friendly and well-designed, reflecting the importance of aesthetics in today’s digital landscape,” said Martinez.

S&S Waste has actively recognized the need to adapt to technology and has taken steps to incorporate software like PlanHub for project bidding and estimating. The company aims to streamline processes, enhance efficiency, and stay updated with industry advancements by embracing technology. This proactive approach allows them to leverage digital tools and platforms to improve their lead generation and project management capabilities, ultimately increasing their competitiveness in the market.

“We aim for a symbiotic relationship and want to relieve our customers of the burden of worrying about waste, allowing them to focus on their job site. Our goal is to be as minimally involved as possible and provide exceptional service that makes our customers want to work with us again,” said Martinez.

In addition, S&S Waste places great importance on open communication and has implemented measures to address this challenge. They offer direct access to their team, enabling customers to communicate directly with the relevant individuals involved in their project. This approach strengthens communication channels and enhances efficiency by eliminating unnecessary communication layers and ensuring prompt responses to customer concerns or queries. By fostering transparent and direct communication, S&S Waste can build stronger customer relationships and provide a personalized experience that differentiates them from competitors.


“When I log into PlanHub, my goal is to find suitable jobs that we can win,” said Martinez.

By implementing technology solutions such as PlanHub for project bidding and estimating, S&S Waste has streamlined its processes, improved efficiency, and stayed up to date with industry advancements. This integration has enhanced their operational efficiency, increased competitiveness, and expanded their reach in lead generation.

“I really appreciate the structure of PlanHub, which sets it apart from other websites,” said Martinez.

Moreover, their emphasis on open communication and direct access to key personnel has resulted in improved customer satisfaction, stronger client relationships, and faster issue resolution. These outcomes have positioned S&S Waste as a reliable and responsive service provider, enhancing their overall customer service experience.

Overall, these solutions have delivered tangible results for S&S Waste, empowering them to adapt to industry changes, enhance operational efficiency, foster stronger customer relationships, and maintain a competitive edge in the lead generation and construction waste management sector.

    Bid Leveler & Proposal builder

    Comparing bids to one another has never been easier. Users can now see bids side by side, compare bid amounts, and review subcontractors’ certifications and qualifications all in one place.

    Bid Leveler’s apples-to-apples approach allows you to easily drill down and see detailed, easy-to-scan cost breakdowns. Indicate bid preference, hide bids that don’t meet your needs, and request needed information from subs.

    Full Bid Management

    From the initial decision to pursue a project to the final bid submission and follow up, bid management plays a central role in pre construction.

    Effectively managed bids during the preconstruction phase set the stage for a successful project execution and satisfied clients.

    Streamline bid management from project posting to estimating, bidding, and awarding in one place with easy project posting, project-contractor automatic matching based on trades, location, and qualification with PlanHub.

    Estimation and TakeOff

    Let’s face it—time is money. And the more time it takes to perform takeoffs and submit bids, the more you risk losing out on valuable revenue opportunities. Manual methods and locally installed desktop software slow your takeoff process, and many digital solutions currently on the market can be overly complex and not user-friendly. 

    Build faster takeoffs, get more bids out the door, and win more projects. Forget pen and paper, outdated desktop software, and overly complicated digital takeoff solutions. PlanHub’s easy-to-use Takeoff tool helps you and your team build accurate takeoffs faster, minimize errors and material waste, and win more projects that boost your business growth. Performing your takeoffs with PlanHub allows you to:

    • Streamline and integrate your process: Perform your takeoffs in the same platform you use to manage your network and bids.
    • Avoid costly estimating errors: Get better accuracy with digital tools instead of traditional, mistake-prone pen and paper.
    • Collaborate easily: Share and work with your team, no matter where you—or they—are located.
    • Submit more bids and win more projects: Get quality bids in front of general contractors faster and get ahead of your competition.

    Document Management

    Organize, store, and manage various documents, blueprints, drawings and other information related to projects before the actual construction phase begins.

    This phase is crucial for setting the foundation of a successful construction project, and effective document management plays a significant role in ensuring that all necessary information is accessible, accurate, and up-to-date to all interested parties.

    Access, review, work on, and share large complex documents in one platform with amazing speed. From project definition, drawing management, takeoff, estimation, bid management, and contracts, everything happens in PlanHub.

    1M+ pre-qualified network

    PlanHub is the leading platform that connects companies, construction professionals, and projects in the pre-construction industry, focusing on building and developing meaningful relationships to enhance efficiency and productivity.

    We have integrated general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers’ workflows in one platform to simplify the complex back and forth usually present in preconstruction. By allowing all interactions to be done through PlanHub, tracking projects and relationships is much easier, saving contractors and material suppliers time and money. Interactions in the platform are tagged and measured to provide insights to users.

    General contractors create bid packages that are shared in PlanHub as projects. They can include templatized lists of all CSI cost items as part of the new Baseline feature. Baseline allows for faster and more accurate bid requests, facilitates homogenization of subcontractors’ bids, and simplifies the comparison of incoming bids.

    Subcontractors are automatically matched with relevant projects based on their profile, preferences, and pre-qualification information saving hours of research to both sides. They can review project details, documentation, and blueprints.
