Collection Procurement Assistance

City of Casselberry | Casselberry, FL | Completed: 2020

The City of Casselberry had an exclusive residential waste and recycling collection contract, but non-exclusive franchises for commercial collection. With ten haulers operating under non-exclusive franchises, the City had found the system to be administratively burdensome and a challenge for code enforcement to effectively manage. MSW Consultants performed an analysis of the non-exclusive franchise system to quantify the costs, administrative oversight, and environmental impacts of the non-exclusive system compared to an exclusive commercial collection franchise. The analysis also evaluated impacts to the current hauling community within the market dynamics in the Central Florida region. Based on the analysis performed, the City opted to migrate to an exclusive commercial franchise to improve rates to its businesses and reduce truck traffic and air emissions. MSW Consultants supported the Procurement process by drafting technical specifications and pricing forms, attending associated meetings, drafting answers to submitted questions, supported evaluation and transition planning, and crossover to the awarded exclusive collector.
