Background
The Sheriff's Office Property and Evidence Unit accumulates a large amount of property that needs to be disposed of on a regular basis.  The volume of materials that require disposal is reaching a point where capacity is going to be exceeded in the very near future.  Covanta Stanislaus Inc., has agreed to provide disposal services of confiscated goods, weapons, drugs, confidential materials and evidence from cases that are closed.  This off-site disposal service will benefit the Sheriff's Office by increasing storage capability and staff efficiency.  
 
Reason for Recommendation
Approval of this recommendation will allow the Sheriff's Property and Evidence Unit to dispose of non-hazardous materials in a secure, safe and confidential manner.
 
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval
Sheriff's Office will return two signed original Agreements to Covanta Stanislaus Inc., and work with the Procurement and Contracts Department to establish a blanket purchase order for payment of invoices.
