On 1 April 2017 Wagga Wagga City Council requested tenders for a new kerbside contract. A number of waste management service providers made submissions which resulted in a competitive field and great opportunity for Council to find the best fit for the waste management goals of our community.
At the Council meeting on Monday 24 July Council resolved to accept a tender for the collection of kerbside waste to begin 2 April 2018. Council also accepted a tender for the processing of recyclables, however, Council resolved to reject all tenders for the acceptance and processing of food organic and garden organics (FOGO) waste.
A new tender for the acceptance and processing of FOGO material was open from 13 January to 12 February. At the Council Meeting on Monday 26 February Council resolved to reject all tender as what was received did not offer acceptable terms for the service and were unable to start from 2 April. Direct negotiations with unsuccessful tenderers and third parties will now be undertaken to secure a processor for the FOGO material.
