ACI to Provide Castro Valley’s Solid Waste Services Starting in 2019
Submitted by natalie on Fri, 06/01/2018 - 3:42pm
CASTRO VALLEY, CA – Concluding a Request for Proposals (RFP) process on Tuesday, May 15th, Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan)’s Board of Directors voted 4-1 to award CVSan’s agreement for recycling, organics, and garbage collection and processing to Alameda County Industries (ACI) over a joint venture between Waste Management of Alameda County (WMAC) and Tri-CED Recycling. ACI will begin providing services in CVSan on May 1, 2019 for the next 10 years.
ACI is a local, privately-owned company based in San Leandro. Currently, ACI provides service to the Cities of Alameda and San Leandro, excluding the Oro Loma Sanitary District.
CVSan received two proposals in response to its RFP. CVSan’s Board selected ACI because their proposal provided a better overall value for the community. Highlights of this overall value include:
• Lower Rate Adjustments: ACI’s lower cost base will yield a lower rate adjustment over the term of the agreement. ACI’s proposal will be a 14% rate increase, compared to WMAC’s proposal of a 15.5% rate increase. Both proposals assumed a 2.9% cost of living adjustment.
• Higher Performance Standards: ACI accepted high performance standards, whereas WMAC sought lower standards of performance. For example, industry ratings indicate that ACI has a stronger safety record.
• Stronger References: References provided by the companies rated ACI higher than WMAC in all categories, including customer service quality.
• Commitment to the Environment: ACI is committed to local and environmentally preferable purchasing, whereas WMAC initially struck those sections from the agreement. ACI’s Zero Waste targets will also help the community towards reaching its Zero Waste goal of 90%+ diversion by 2029. In contrast, WMAC proposed that their lower Zero Waste targets be adjusted if WMAC does not meet them.
ACI is required to offer employment, with wages and benefits maintained, to all WMAC workers displaced by CVSan’s new agreement. However, the decision to transfer companies is up to the employee.
For more information on CVSan’s new collection and processing agreement, call (510) 537-0757 ext. 124 or email Public Outreach Specialist Natalie Croak at email@example.com.
