As new multi-family and high-density residential properties come to Oakland, it becomes increasingly important for onsite and facilities managers to provide comprehensive waste management, recycling services and education to assist residents in complying with current laws, and to keep Oakland clean.


Post Helpful Signage


Post helpful signage in trash enclosure areas to encourage tenants to sort recycling, compost, and landfill waste correctly with minimum contamination. Make sure your tenants have the correct tools and information to recycle correctly by providing and labeling containers. Distribute informational brochures and hang up posters in common areas to help tenants identify the materials that are recycle or compost.


Schedule a Bulky Pickup


Contact your local garbage company if they offer free bulky pickups in your city. Some garbage companies offer at least one free bulky pickup per calendar year and multifamily properties may be eligible based on the number of units in the building.

This is a good time to encourage residents to gather large items that they wish to dispose of and helps avoid having these items pile up around the property. Large bulky pickup items can include furniture, appliances, tires, electronics, carpets and scrap metal.


Inform Tenants of Free Hazardous Waste Drop-off Facilities


Encourage tenants to properly dispose of hazardous materials and chemicals by posting and distributing hazardous material information and how to properly dispose of hazardous waste. Contact the Alameda County Household Hazardous Waste Program for a list of accepted items, facility drop off locations and upcoming drop-off events. www.stopwaste.org

Multifamily Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

There is a new free hazardous waste service for residential landlords to dispose of their tenant’s waste. Call the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) at 1-800-618-6942 to apply for an EPA ID. In many cases, EPA ID numbers can be assigned over the phone.

Most common consumer building maintenance products are accepted: adhesives, painting, cleaning, auto, garden, propane, batteries, and fluorescent bulbs. Other more industrial products may be accepted after a consultation.

Provide Sufficient & Easily Accessible Recycle Containers


Provide tenants with sufficient indoor recycling and compost containers and place them in convenient locations that can later be taken to the waste common area. It is much easier to encourage recycling and composting when the containers are easily accessible and stored in convenient locations. Make sure to post signage so that tenants know which items can be recycled or composted.


Communication


Send regular emails or newsletters informing and reminding tenants about the recycling and composting efforts on the property. If you find the landfill volume decreasing on your property, follow up with tenants to share the results and encourage them to continue their recycling efforts. Include information about local drop-off events, upcoming bulky pickups, and local facilities for hazardous waste drop-off.

Bay Area Bin Support also covers 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,” says co-owner Nancy Fiame. “Trash begins overflowing, garbage spills over on to the floor and garbage just keeps piling on. Some people don’t break down boxes properly which decreases the space in your containers for other items. Garbage companies typically do not have time to offer cleanup service. We do at Bay Area Bin Support.”

WE CLEAN UP AROUND YOUR BINS

BEFORE: Bay Area Bin Support arrives, bins often look like this picture below.

AFTER: Bay Area Bin Service ensures that all bins are organized and overflow is placed properly in the bins prior to moving to the curb.

ORGANIZED AND CLEAN

To address that absent cleanup service, the Bay Area Bin Support team includes it at every push/pull site. Team members pick up any debris on the floor and put it inside the appropriate bin. Trash is pushed down as much as possible to avoid overflow charges. The dumpster areas are swept, cleaned up, straightened up and left free of debris. The Bay Area Bin Support team also closes the garbage chutes while the bins are out on the curb and opens them up after the bins are back in place.
