"In 2015, Oakland was the first to feel the huge impact of push pull fees when the new garbage contract took effect. Suddenly, having the garbage company pull a bin 100 feet or more to the curb to be emptied was going to cost almost a thousand dollars per month per bin! Bay Area Bin Support charges almost 75 percent less for the same service."

"Bay Area Bin Support offers the most reasonable pricing, and they are reliable and responsive. The service is great—there’s not much more you can ask for,” said Nicholas Cress, Market Analyst at WestRock Service, Inc., who started researching alternative waste management options when Oakland-based waste companies hiked their fees on its properties with tenants like Starbucks and Peet’s Coffee."

Bay Area Bin Support also wanted to cover another part of garbage disposal that typically has fallen to property management, landlords or maintenance staff.
“Anyone who is familiar with a garbage enclosure in a multifamily residence knows that by the end of the week, the dumpster areas are a complete mess,” said company co-founder and owner Nancy Fiame. “Trash begins overflowing, garbage spills over on to the floor and people just keep piling on. Garbage companies typically do not have time to offer cleanup service.”

Waste Management is charging landlords of multifamily buildings so much to move large trash containers from the building to the curb — a “push-pull” service offered for free under the city’s old contract with the company — that new businesses are being created just to undercut the garbage company’s fees.
Nancy Fiame launched her company, Bay Area Bin Support, this summer after hearing of Waste Management’s plans to jack up push/pull rates in Oakland.
“It was like an ‘Aha’ moment,” said Fiame, “I knew there was going to be a need for this.”

Two years ago, there was no market for a business that specialized in “a la carte” bin-moving services. Now, there’s demand.
The men are employed by Bay Area Bin Support, which opened shop a year ago with the sales pitch that it can save Oakland property owners and businesses hundreds if not thousands of dollars a month. Instead of paying the Waste Management fees — up to $931 to push or pull a Dumpster or other large bin to the curbside — property and business owners can hire Bay Area Bin Support to move the containers for less.
“We have some customers whose (Waste Management) bills were in the thousands of dollars and that’s a significant difference from what we charge,” said Nancy Fiame, who founded Bay Area Bin Support with her husband, Junior, a former Waste Management employee. Fiame said her company charges about $100 a month to push small bins, and upward of $200 a month for large ones.
