The City utilizes ground yard waste, whole tree wood chips, sawdust, straw, logs, and ground wood waste as bulking agents to process sewage sludge. The services to be performed under this contract call for Edwards Landclearing, Inc. to provide equipment and an operator for grinding yard waste and wood waste, sizing and grinding logs.

An indefinite quantity contract was established in accordance with Request for Quotation RFQ018927 and authorized under Ordinance Number 0150-2021.
