Acceptance of renewal of contract to Stericycle Environmental Solutions for household hazardous waste disposal .

Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

The City of Olathe’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) program diverted over 434 tons of potentially dangerous materials from the waste stream in 2018, with 9,355 households participating.  A cooperative effort with Johnson County (contract 2014-114) for storm water management requirements has led to more participation at collection events and a new supplemental funding source for our HHW program. The maturity of this program over the past couple of years has started to bring to this program a higher level of expectations for public education and involvement in this environmental protection and waste reduction program. The City has expanded hours to include all Saturdays with drop-offs being scheduled except for the 2nd Saturday of the month “open” collection events.

In 2014, Johnson County Government competitively solicited for household hazardous waste disposal.  City of Olathe staff participated on the evaluation team for award recommendation.  The contract award was made to Stericycle Environmental Solutions and allows for this additional renewal period.   

Staff recommends renewal of contract to Stericycle Environmental Solutions.

There are no Olathe vendors that perform this service.
