RFP - Solid Waste and Recycling Collection


The City is accepting proposals from qualified solid waste and recycling contractors (“Contractors”) for the purpose of granting a contract to provide exclusive services for the collection, transportation and disposal of residential and commercial solid waste and recycling generated in the City. The successful Contractor shall provide all labor, equipment, materials, tools, supplies, and personnel necessary to comply with the specifications listed within this Request for Proposals ("RFP"). 

The City welcomes proposals from Contractors, which may include multiple proposed options from a single vendor. The City has issued this solicitation concurrently with a solicitation for ‘Transfer Station Operation and Management,’ as the City is open to combining both services under one vendor.

Interested applicants should contact Allison Hudson, Procurement Officer, at AHudson@covingtonky.gov, or 859-292-2178, to request a copy of the solicitation documents and coordinating specifications. 

Proposals must be submitted in a sealed envelope plainly marked on the outside "SEALED PROPOSAL FOR SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING COLLECTION – DO NOT OPEN WITH REGULAR MAIL."
