Garbage, Recyclable Materials, and Organic Waste Collection Services RFP

On November 4, 1996, a voter initiative was approved requiring solid waste services to be competitively bid every ten years, referred to as, the "Refuse, Recycling, and Composting Competitive Bid Ordinance" requiring that "all Town recycling, solid waste and green waste collection programs, whether provided through an exclusive or non-exclusive agreement, shall be subject to a competitive bid process."

On June 20, 2007, the Town contracted with Windsor Refuse & Recycling, Inc. for an exclusive franchise agreement for collection, processing, recycling and disposal of residential and commercial solid waste. The exclusive collection service agreement will expire on September 30, 2017 and cannot be extended per the voter initiative.

​The Town of Windsor released the Garbage, Recyclable Materials, and Organic Waste Collection Services RFP on Thursday, August 25, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. PDT.
