Request for Proposals
Organics Carts & Containers

Invitation to Proponents
This Request for Proposals (the “RFP”) is an invitation by The Corporation of the City of Vernon (the “City”) to prospective proponents to submit proposals for the Supply and Distribution of Organics Carts & Containers.
The City of Vernon has recently moved to automated residential garbage collection and will be implementing automated curbside organics collection.
Composting is an effective way to reduce the amount of garbage that is sent to the landfill. Organics diversion through composting can reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions by more than 90% compared to sending the same waste to the landfill.
Automated curbside residential organics collection is coming to Vernon in Summer 2022! This program will help collect the food and yard waste from most residential homes in Vernon and keep it out of the landfill.
The awarded contractor will supply, assemble, and complete residential distribution of a mixed size of rollout organics carts as well as in-home residential kitchen collector containers.
