Official Letter from City of Oakland on Push and Pull Charges
What is Push and Pull Service?
Our team will move your containers and place them safely curbside so your
scheduled trash or recycling hauler can service the bins. Once emptied, our
team will place the dumpster or carts back to their original location.
Push and Pull Service also called Backyard Service, Porter Service or
Scout Service is an emerging service that more facilities are discovering
to be a valuable resource, which can reduce injury, save money, and provide
a safe and accessible solution from trash haulers and users. We manually
move your containers to the curb. For heavy containers, we utilize special
tuggers or for heavy containers, we provide SCOUTSERVICE using a specially
designed truck that lifts and safely transports your dumpster to the curb.

Many waste haulers have added push and pull fees or backyard service fees to your municipal franchise rates. BA Waste can provide the push and pull service at a fraction of what you may be paying. Our average customer saves $2400+ per year.
