Paradise Valley, Ariz., Town Council to Issue RFP for Waste Collection

The RFP is a five-year contract with the option for three one-year renewals.

Elected officials of the Paradise Valley (Ariz.) Town Council are preparing to move forward with a formal bid process that will change how waste is collected within town limits. For years, the town has had a free-market system, which allows residents to select their own haulers. But now, the council is considering moving forward with one hauler, eliminating the free-market system altogether.

On June 8, the council reviewed a request-for-proposal (RFP) to be submitted for local waste haulers to bid on the service of approximately 5,600 homes. The RFP, a five-year contract with the option for three one-year renewals, will provide residents with two service options and the ability to purchase additional amenities like a walk-up service.

Town of Paradise Valley Independent has more details:

Paradise Valley Town Council, in one way or another, have been talking trash for nearly 20 years, but the culmination of those talks appears to be turning a corner, as elected officials are ready to move forward with a formal bid process that breaks away from historical stance of how trash is collected within town limits.

During a June 8 study session, the town council took its final read over a request-for-proposal to be submitted for local trash haulers to bid on the service of approximately 5,600 homes.

If the council moves forward with one provider, it would set forth a change from a free-market system that has been maintained within the town since its inception.
