Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to renew a contract to add funds for year four of the Collection Services of Yard Waste & Recyclables 2017 Contract with Rumpke of Ohio, Inc., in the amount of $9,326,776.00, and to authorize the Director of Public Service to execute contract modifications if needed to clarify terms and conditions of the contract or to implement program improvements and enhancements.

Continuation of a separate collection for yard waste and recyclable items is necessary to segregate them from the regular waste stream. This serves to extend the life of the landfill operated by the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO).

The Collection Services of Yard Waste and Recyclables contract provides bi-weekly collection of recyclables and yard waste for residences, servicing of recycling containers deployed along Broad Street and High Street as part of the Pedestrian Recycling Program, glass pick-up from restaurants and bars along N. High Street as part of the Recycle On High program, and recyclable collection services for the solar compactors deployed in the Short North Area. The Department of Public Service issued a bid in 2016 to establish a contract to replace the expiring Collection Services of Yard Waste and Recyclables contract. City Council approved awarding this contract to Rumpke via Ordinance 0479-2017 passed by Council on 3/13/17. The contract is a five-year contract expiring 3/31/22, with five one-year renewal options. The contract does include a fuel price adjustment, so the contract amount could increase or decrease according to changes in the price of diesel fuel.
