The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, City and County of Denver, has issued a Request for Proposals (the “RFP”) for Solid Waste Truck/Staff Augmentation Services as described below. RFP documents will be available for download at www.bidnetdirect.com//cityandcountyofdenverdoti.
General Statement of Work
Beginning in January 2023, Solid Waste Management customers (single family homes and apartments up to seven (7) units), will begin paying for all solid waste services based on their trash cart size. Weekly recycling and compost services will be included at no additional cost. Weekly recycling is slated to begin immediately in January, while compost will be phased in throughout 2023, as the City educates customers on contamination prevention.
As Solid Waste Management (“SWM”) transitions from bi-weekly recycling collection to weekly service, SWM will also grow its recycling service. SWM is anticipating awarding three (3) contracts, each with seven (7) routes per pickup day (estimated 1,000 households per route, four (4) days of collection per week), to assist with trash, recycle, and/or compost collection to augment its existing fleet for three years of the new program.
