San Francisco Chronicle – September 21, 2016
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.
