Recyclable Processing Agreement Negotiation Assistance Hauler Fee Audits


In 2009, we assisted the City in re-negotiating its recyclable processing agreement with Burbank Recycling, Inc. (BRI). The City owns a recyclable processing center to which it delivers the recyclable materials it collects through its curbside and commercial collection routes. The City contracts with BRI to operate and maintain the facility. Our work included gathering information about similar recyclable processing arrangements, developing a negotiation strategy, drafting an updated operating agreement, and assisting in contract discussions. In 2011, we assisted the City in negotiating an assignment of the BRI operating agreement to Burrtec Waste Industries, Inc. In 2013, MSW Consultants reviewed the franchise fees paid by the City’s independent commercial waste haulers.
