Kern County, located in California’s Central Valley, is releasing “Waste Diversion Services—Request for Statements of Interest” (request for SOI), requesting non-binding statements of interest. The county seeks interested parties to assist in providing processes, technologies and possible facility development to process materials to reduce landfill disposal and, particularly, the disposal of organic materials as defined under the pending regulations of California’s SB 1383.
The county’s Public Works Department’s Operations Division operates seven major sanitary landfills and four larger transfer stations.
HF&H Consultants, LLC is managing the request for SOI process on behalf of the county. The request for SOI, including the schedule of deadlines, background information, contact details and information on how to access related documents and addenda, is included here. The document also includes instructions for subscribing to the email list to receive updates regarding the process, schedule and materials posted on the website; to ask questions; and to receive responses to questions asked by all interested parties as further described in the request for SOI.
Submittals will be reviewed for compliance with the request for SOI. Firms submitting compliant responses will be asked to further present their solution and may be recommended to the Kern County Board of Supervisors for inclusion in a more formal request for proposal process.
