SUBJECT:

Title

Approval of an annual contract for the purchase of customized green waste collection bags from AJM Packaging Corporation for the Public Works Department.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

On December 5, 2018, the City of New Braunfels issued a Request for Proposal for green waste collection bags which are biodegradable heavy-duty paper bags utilized to collect yard waste such as grass clippings and leaves.  The green waste collection bags are customized by the vendor with City-provided art work, including informational printing on both sides of the bags.  The City received four (4) responses on December 20, 2018, which were evaluated based upon price and qualifications. AJM Packaging Corporation submitted a proposal for $.0366 per bag which is an estimated annual expenditure of $105,408.  The bags are printed directly by the vendor and no subcontractor is required for printing or distribution to the City. 

 

Upon review of the proposal, samples, and qualifications, the Public Works staff recommends that the contract be awarded to AJM Packaging Corporation.  The contract term is three years with two additional one-year renewal options for a combined total of five years.
