REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
FOR
PERMANENT REGIONAL HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION
FACILITY MANAGEMENT & DISPOSAL SERVICES
July 7, 2015


BASIS OF THE PROJECT:

The Saint Louis County Department of Public Health Solid Waste Management Program (COUNTY) invites proposals for operations, labor, site management, and disposal services associated with multiple Household Hazardous Waste Facilities (HHWF) in a permanent regional program, with the possibility of adding facilities during this contract. This regional program serves residential customers residing in St. Louis City, Jefferson County, and St. Louis County. The regional partnership (HHWSTL) has a total population of 1,536,981 people per the 2010 US Census. The contract term is two (2)-years with two- (2) one (1)-year renewals.

PERMANENT HHW PROGRAM BACKGROUND:

Since 1998 the COUNTY hosted one-day collections events that were free and had no limits on the amounts dropped-off. In March of 2013, HHWSTL opened the the first permanent site, the Lemay HHW Facility, located at 291 E. Hoffmeister, St Louis MO, 63125. In July of 2015, the North County HHW Facility, located at 4100 Seven Hills Dr, St Louis MO, 63033, was added to the program. Layout and storage capacity for both sites are provided in Attachments A, B, and C. The partnership is looking to add additional sites in the future.

Wastes Accepted: paints, stains, varnishes, pesticides, herbicides, poisons, gasoline and other automotive fluids, solvents, strippers, aerosols, gas cylinders (barbeque size and smaller), fluorescent tubes, rechargeable batteries, pool chemicals, photography chemicals, other acids and bases, car batteries, wood preservatives, driveway sealant, and mercury containing items.

Funding: Funding for this project comes in part from the St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District (SWMD) and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The COUNTY manages the SWMD grant funding for HHWSTL and SWMD funds are the sole source of funding for Jefferson County and the City of St. Louis. St. Louis County has additional funding through a voter approved landfill surcharge fee to supplement SWMD grant funds.

Cost-Sharing: Residents are allowed to bring up to 50 pounds of HHW (except latex paint) at no charge. Users are charged a disposal fee of $1.00 per pound for each pound over the 50 pound limit. Latex paint is accepted for recycling; however the resident is charged $0.20 per pound. The transition to cost-sharing measures has been well received by County residents.

If additional markets become feasible during the course of the contract, in addition to latex paint, the contractor may be asked for pricing to separate other non-hazardous materials, such as fats, oils, greases, alkaline batteries, etc. County may also change the weight limits for free disposal (50lbs) at their discretion.
