About Us

PRO-AM was founded in 1991 and was the first to offer multi-family valet trash services and multi-bin on-site waste control programs in Southern CA. PRO-AM has consistently saved hundreds of properties money in annual disposal costs by combining in-depth onsite analysis and expertise. PRO-AM recognizes that each property is unique in construction, demographics and turnover. Turnover changes demographics and trash volume generated. A peak holiday or weekend, the first of the month, contractor abuses or missed pickups impact bin capacity significantly. Adding bins or service days do not prevent sporadic over-flow as a result of unpredictable turnover or illegal dumping. In fact, it just increases the cost, as the hauler will not complain when they charge a property owner to lift an empty bin.

Consulting alone cannot forecast trash needs -- as turnover and/or business model changes occur and are never consistent in any one area.

PRO-AM found that monitoring savings, recycling, and contractor abuses have become essential in managing trash and operating costs as onsite staff have been forced to cut expenses as the disposal and tipping fees grow. Further, recycling mandates and environmental concerns (and fines/fees) have further burdened multi-bin serviced property owners and managers.

PRO-AM Offers:

Our services are unique because we are in the trash enclosures up to 6 days a week, measuring bin capacity, usage, flow, characteristics and identifying/reporting contractor uses and abuses and literally, moving trash from overloaded bins to those that are underutilized. Each service day, all properties receive a detailed report of their solid waste and recycle bin capacity and stream. We also report any/all bulky items, vendor usage or abuses. All data is uploaded to our web server for future analysis and statistics.

Essentially, we have over a decade of data and statistics, which assists us in addressing each property's unique needs and changes.
