When approaches to recycling and solid waste call for external partners, AGR assists local governments with every step, from preparing solicitations to negotiating agreements. Our procurement approach focuses on one goal - to result in a partnership that enables clients to achieve their environmental and financial goals.
AGR evaluated the county's long-time agreement with a private operator of a county-owned landfill. We met with County Commissioners and citizens to understand concerns, provided examples of potential contract language from similar agreements to address these concerns, and recommended changes to current terms and operations.
AGR guided this rapidly growing county as it transitions to a universal curbside collection system. We developed a strategy and gained support from elected officials for curbside collection in multiple districts, drafted requests for proposals, evaluated responses, participated in interviews with proposers, and prepared contract terms.
AGR prepared a Request for Expressions of Interest, a Request for Proposals, and contract language for operation of the County's existing Recyclable Materials Processing Facility and equipping and operating a new facility. This was the third time A. Goldsmith assisted the County in procuring recycling facility operation services in the past 25 years.
