Agricultural Chipping

Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen

Agricultural Chipping
Request for Proposals

RDOS-20-PW-21


INTRODUCTION

The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) has provided onsite agricultural chipping services for over a decade. The RDOS is looking to improve these services to provide more options for agriculturists to avoid burning.

The RDOS is seeking Proposals from businesses that can provide service to the agricultural community within the RDOS for onsite chipping and/or grinding services.

This is not a solicitation for equipment and the RDOS will not be purchasing equipment.


BACKGROUND

The RDOS comprises the south Okanagan and Similkameen valleys. Major communities include Penticton, Summerland, Oliver, Osoyoos, Keremeos and Princeton. These communities and surrounding rural areas contain a variety of orchards and vineyards that produce agricultural waste.

Support for agricultural chipping arose from the desire to reduce smoke pollution from open burning. Presently the program allows the Regional District to fund the chipping of organic waste on agricultural properties by a qualified contractor within parts of the Regional District. The RDOS does not subsidize the pulling of trees or the shipment of chips offsite.


TERM

The Term of the contract is intended to be a three (3) year term with the option to extend the contract an additional three (3) years at the discretion of the RDOS. Proposals may comment on the preferred term for the Proponent.

All inquiries related to this RFP are to be directed, in writing, to the following person. Information obtained from any other source is not official and should not be relied upon. Inquiries and responses will be recorded and may be distributed through an addendum at the Regional District’s option.

Any questions regarding this RFP must be submitted at least five (5) working days prior to the Closing Date. Any questions submitted after this date may not be answered.
