Approval of the reassignment of a contract with ReCommunity Holdings, II to Republic Services.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

ReCommunity Holdings, II was awarded a contract with the City on July 22, 2016 to be the City’s processor for single-stream recyclables collected by the City.  The contract terms and conditions require City approval for a change of name (novation).  ReCommunity made formal notice of acquisition by Republic Services on August 24, 2017, a process that was recently completed.  City services have not been affected or disrupted by the acquisition. Republic Services is a nationwide recycling and waste services provider, serving millions of customers throughout the country. 

 

With this re-assignment, Republic Services will formerly assume and agree to perform the obligations under the City’s existing contract.  Republic Services has committed to assuming the existing terms and conditions of the current contract.
