Redefining what it means to be a garbage man, the founders and leadership of WB Waste Solutions, LLC have a wealth of knowledge that stems from a passion rooted in customer service, hard work, and family values. We are a company rooted in the D.C. Metropolitain Region with arms that reach throughout Maryland and Northern Virginia.
Willie Goode started his career as a driver. He used his ambition and initiative to purchase his own truck to continue providing the type of service he knew that his residential and commercial customers deserved. Each member of our leadership guides the WB Waste Solutions team to strive for excellence in efficient and environmental waste management.
Founded and organized in 2013, WB Waste Solutions, LLC. operates from the viewpoint of looking through the windshield of a truck. What this translates to is a personable and effective approach to the industry that few other waste management companies offer. That vision creates the opportunity to provide services that are comprehensive, environmentally focused, and individually tailored to respond to your needs. We are the result of a partnership combined from industry experts, dedicated professionals, and years of relevant experience.
Michael Magee joined the WB team in 2015 after spending most of his 37 years of professional experience with the largest companies in the waste industry. Over the years he developed a depth of diverse experience in many different markets around the country from the east coast to the west coast. In addition, Mr. Magee ran his own consulting and advisory firm for over 10 years and also started, built and sold several businesses, including permitting a medical waste collection & autoclave business and a commercial off-airport parking operation. He returns home to the DC market after living and working here in the early 1990’s where he first met Mr. Goode and Mr. Bates.
Bruce has sat at the helm of Bates Trucking, a local minority owned waste and recycling company, for over 25 years and has been instrumental in his company’s organic growth- successfully growing a 10 truck operation into a 100 plus truck operation. With locations strategically placed within the DC-MD-VA market and a focus on the local business and residential community needs, Bates Trucking has positioned itself to be a convenient and logical choice for any waste or recycling, hauling or disposal need. Bruce Bates inherited his industry knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit from his father. What started from two trucks grew over the years to become a substantial fleet and a force to be reckoned with.
Bruce’s involvement and dedication in the local communities’ economic development and business mentoring initiatives is a testament to his commitment into hiring local and local business to business development. His years of industry experience and success as the CEO and President of Bates Trucking makes him a natural leader in the development and day to day operations of the WB Waste family of companies.
