Analysis of Solid Waste Collection System Competitive Procurement of Exclusive Solid Waste Franchise Agreement


In 2010, we assisted the City in analyzing its current solid waste collection system and determined the amount that ratepayers would save if the City were to move to a single exclusive hauler. At the time, the City had two independent haulers that openly competed for residential customers. We gathered operational and rate information from both haulers to determine the ratepayers aggregate cost of solid waste collection service. Based on that information, we prepared and issued a Request for Information (RFI), which was sent to various waste hauling firms to obtain quotes for exclusive citywide service. In 2014, we assisted the City in conducting a competitive procurement of an exclusive solid waste franchise agreement. Our work included initial sole-source negotiations with the incumbent hauler, assisting with the preparation of the RFP package and franchise agreement, evaluating proposals, interviewing finalists, and presenting the results to the City Council.
