Title
Approval of an annual contract renewal with Clean Harbors Environmental Services Inc. for the collection, management, and disposal of household hazardous waste accepted at City sponsored events.

Body
BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:
The City of New Braunfels solicited a bid in October of 2017 seeking a qualified contractor to provide services for the collection and management of household hazardous waste (HHW) at several City-sponsored events per year. During the events, participants bring HHW materials such as paint, stain, chemicals, used oil, and batteries to a designated collection area where the contractor is responsible for sorting and packaging the waste prior to transporting it for disposal in an environmentally safe manner.

An agreement was made with Clean Harbors Environmental Services Inc. in December of 2017 for a term of 5 years with 4 1-year renewal options. This is the first 1-year renewal option.

Due to recent industry changes and market conditions Clean Harbors has proposed an increase of 7.5% from the previous contract awarded in December of 2017. Since the Solid Waste and Recycling Division Budget has already been set for FY 18/19 Clean Harbors has agreed to split the increase over two years, 4.5% this fiscal year and 3% next fiscal year. The average event cost over the last year has been $37,997, the 4.5% would increase the event cost by about $1,700 or $5,100 for the year. This is acceptable to the Solid Waste and Recycling Division as it gives us the opportunity to budget accordingly in FY 19/20.
