S&S is a family owned company that has faithfully served Miami for 29 years. Many nonprofits and community organizations depend on our support. We're fighting for a fair chance to work in the city of Miami as any other corporation, big or small.

We the “undersigned” are signing the following petition on behalf of Bicon Inc dba S&S National Waste (S&S). We the undersigned are Employees, family members, stakeholders and friends of S&S.  We are seeking immediate remedy and resolve on the issue regarding S&S’s soon to be expired license and their right to work in the city of Miami.The economic impact that would result in the failure on the part of the City Commissioners of the City of Miami to renew or restore their license to continue to work would be severe. Each morning 12 grapple trucks roll through the streets of Miami keeping the workplace and streets clean and workers safe from debris. These trucks are supported by a large team, many who are single mothers and sole providers for their families. S&S generates over 40% of their contractual work in the city of Miami and for the City not to renew their license would cost the immediate layoff of these employees who depend on these jobs. In addition, S&S is heavily invested in the non-profit sector as a company authentically dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility.  These non-profits have now expressed a concern and even outrage at the City's actions or lack of action because they too would be injured by the economic impact as they too depend on the financial support of S&S.

The failure or continued refusal to restore their license would have lasting impact on the economics of the city, labors, families, and many of S&S providers and suppliers. In a time of high unemployment, and when our city seeks economic prosperity to return, a failure to immediately reinstate their license would not be logical nor reflect sound judgment.  

We the undersigned are calling on the City Commissioners to do the right thing.  You have the power to do so.  Doing so is clearly in the best interest of our city and S&S employees. Not to do so creates hardship for others and suspicions on the Commissioners as to why not. It is clear that S&S competitors and lobbyist are behind this apparent stonewalling of S&S and are interfering with their right to work. 

This assault on free enterprise and political maneuvering needs to be exposed and contended with. The best way to resolve this matter is simply to reinstate what has already been in existence, S&S’s right to work in Miami. S&S has been an economic gift to the city. We are asking the Commissioners to show their appreciation and support for small business above and beyond political expediency.
