Decision Advice and Other Information

The General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services, gave a presentation to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee on the Solid Waste Management Services Garbage Collection Request for Quotations (RFQs).

Origin
(April 14, 2011) Report from the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services, and the Director, Purchasing and Materials Management
Summary

Solid Waste Management Services Division (SWMS) is recommending issuance of four Request for Quotations (RFQs) for the following:

 

1.         All daytime residential curbside collection west of Yonge Street to the Etobicoke border (Initiative #1);

 

2.         Litter and recycling collection in City parks (Initiative #2);

 

3.         An increase in City-wide mechanical litter vacuum operation services (Initiative #3); and

 

4.         Contingency residential curbside collection (Initiative #4).

 

The report is also requesting approval to delegate authority to the Bid Committee in order to expedite the award process for the RFQs for Initiatives #1 and #2 to establish what savings the City can expect to receive. This will enable SWMS to incorporate the potential savings into its Recommended 2012 Solid Waste Management Operating Budget.  Award of contracts by Bid Committee also ensures the contracts are executed in advance of the expiration of existing Collective Agreements. Initiatives #3 and #4 do not require delegated authority to be awarded by Bid Committee because the contract terms and expenditures comply with existing By-law conditions for Bid Committee review and approval of contract awards.
