Background:
During a Board Workshop held on March 16, 2009, to discuss countywide solid waste management issues (Agenda Item # 09-0340), the Board directed the Environmental Management Department (EMD) to establish a working Committee that would assist the Department to research and identify a proactive approach for future solid waste planning. Then on June 2, 2009 (Agenda Item # 09-0340), the Board directed EMD to proceed with a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a Countywide Solid Waste Management Plan (Plan) and approved the membership of the solid waste working Committee. The purpose for the formation of the Committee was further defined to assist the County with establishing the priorities of the solid waste management plan and the development of an RFP for the Countywide Solid Waste Management Plan, as well as to establish a collective approach to solid waste planning within the County.

The Committee met on several occasions and developed the RFP for a Countywide Solid Waste Management Plan. The Countywide Solid Waste Management Plan RFP was approved by the Board, released on September 29, 2009 (Agenda Item # 09-1129), and closed on October 27, 2009. The County received three (3) responses to the RFP. Committee members independently reviewed and scored each proposal. The Committee then interviewed each RFP respondent. As a result of the scoring and interviews, the Committee selected the NewPoint Group/BAS as the best qualified firm(s) to prepare a comprehensive Countywide Solid Waste Management Plan.
