Working With RoadRunner
What is the Relationship Between RoadRunner Recycling and its RoadRunners?
We partner with independent contractor drivers to service our customer locations.
How Do You Calculate Pay?
Route rates are calculated based on a variety of market variables, including total mileage, time spent on the road, estimated tonnage and number of stops.
How Does A RoadRunner Get Paid?
We process payment electronically immediately upon route completion. You should see your payment in your bank account as soon as 24-48 hours following route completion!
Do I Need My Own Truck?
Yes, you’ll need your own truck — we typically look for vehicles with a 500 cubic foot cargo capacity or greater. This typically will include extended cargo vans, 12-26 foot box trucks, and larger.
Do I Need Any Sort of Branding or Uniform?
No, your truck may remain as is. RoadRunners conduct themselves professionally and are trusted to appear presentable at all times in clothing of their choosing.
I Have My Own Business. How Much Time Do I Need to Dedicate to RoadRunner?
There’s no minimum number of hours. Every week, you are able to select the routes you would like to run during your available time. We ask that you fully complete all routes you select and are ultimately awarded.
How Much Time Does A Typical Route Take?
Routes on the platform are designed to be completed in 2-4 hours. On-demand work (pickups, haul-outs, etc.) can vary in duration from less than an hour to all-day work.
How Long Is A Typical Route?
The average RoadRunner route is 20 miles long, but we have routes as short as 2 miles and as long as 50.
How Are Routes Awarded?
As routes become available, we add them to our FleetHaul app and notify our partner drivers. They are then able to log in to their app and select them directly from the dashboard.
What Information Do You Provide Me For The Route?
Via our mobile app, we provide RoadRunners with detailed maps, addresses, and pictures of the customer sites we service – you will have all the information you’ll need. For more assistance, you’ll be a button away from communication with a FleetHaul Dispatcher who can help you navigate should you require assistance.
