SUMMARY

 

The City holds a franchise agreement with WMAC to provide solid waste, recycling, and organic materials collection, and processing services. The current agreement commenced March 1, 2015, and is scheduled to expire March 1, 2022. The agreement includes the option to extend for three, 12-month periods. If the City opted to extend the contract the maximum numbers of times, the agreement would expire March 1, 2025.  Staff is requesting to extend the agreement for one 12-month period. Staff is currently negotiating exclusively with WMAC as authorized by Council. Most recently, on June 15, 2021, staff requested from Council and was granted an extension of the exclusive negotiating period until December 31, 2021. Staff is requesting another extension of the exclusive negotiating period until June 30, 2022.
