Zero Waste Technical Assistance for City of Alameda Commercial, Multifamily, and Industrial Sector Waste Generators


The City of Alameda ("City") is requesting proposals from qualified contractors/firms to work with Alameda’s business, multifamily, and industrial sectors to reduce solid waste going to the landfill by providing free waste reduction (including waste prevention, reuse, recycling and composting) education and technical assistance with regular frequency and follow-up.


The main objective of the technical assistance will be to offer assistance to commercial, multi-family, and industrial account holders with Alameda’s Zero Waste Implementation Plan diversion requirements and Alameda County Waste Management Authority (StopWaste) Mandatory Recycling Ordinance (MRO) compliance. Assistance has been provided already to a limited number of multi-family property owners or managers and has focused on setting up or improving the infrastructure for organics collection programs, rather than direct outreach performed to multi-family residents and business organizations.
