Invited Session: Resource Management & Waste Diversion
Oklahoma Hello: City’s Collection Changes in 2016 (0.5 CEU)
Monday, September 25, 2017
17:15 – 17:45
Moderator: Scott Pasternak, Senior Project Manager and Business Development Manager, Burns & McDonnell, Texas
In the last two years, the City has evaluated a number of potential collection service changes and procured a new solid waste collection contract. It plans to implement bi-weekly, single stream recycling (now uses dual stream, 18-gallon bins once per week). The new collections contract includes an innovative approach to pricing the processing of recyclables separate from the collection. Presentation will discuss options considered and service level changes the City is making.
By attending this presentation participants will learn how the City proceeded with a $20M/year collections contract procurement, what options were considered, and methods for specifying and pricing existing and future services, including how to handle recycling processing in a wildly varying commodity market.
