We post about a variety of different topics related to our company and the waste industry on our blog, and it’s always interesting to see which posts our customers visited the most. Last year at this time, we reviewed the most visited blog posts of 2018. When comparing our results from both years, two things stood out: 1) a few of the most popular posts were the same in 2018 as in 2019 and 2) just as for 2018, the most popular blog posts in 2019 were not those written in 2019. Without going into a lot of analysis about what that means, we’ve decided to make two top 5 lists for 2019, one for the five overall most visited posts during the year, and one for the most visited posts out of those written in 2019. Without further ado, here they are.
