On Monday, Boulder County, Colo., held a meeting with 11 companies that are interested in becoming the county’s new recycling center operator. Some of the companies that attended the pre-bid meeting include Waste Management, Alpine Waste and Recycling, Boulder-based Western Disposal, Midwest Waste and Eco-Cycle.
The contract that’s up for grabs is designed to keep recycling by-products and provide incentives to the recycling center operator to produce high-quality recycling materials for sale to private markets.

Eleven firms, including some of Colorado's largest commercial waste management companies, attended a pre-bid meeting Monday morning to learn more about what Boulder County wants in a new recycling center operator.
The county announced last month that it was, for the first time in 17 years, seeking competitive bids for its recycling operation, a role the nonprofit Eco-Cycle has played since 2000.
Among those firms attending the meeting were Waste Management, Alpine Waste and Recycling, Boulder-based Western Disposal, Midwest Waste, and Eco-Cycle, which plans to submit its own bid to continue running the center.
