Montclair Township Approves RFP for Outsourcing Refuse Collection

April 04, 2011

MONTCLAIR TOWNSHIP, N.J. – Montclair plans to issue a request for proposals (RFP) to outsource refuse collection, based on comments from Township Manager Marc Dashield. The Montclair Times reported Dashield made these comments during a presentation of the proposed $70.5M budget.

In November 2010, the Township issued a report analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of changing refuse collection services in a number of ways, from reducing services, to outsourcing, to a subscription service for residents. According to the report, outsourcing would involve the elimination of 17 positions.

The report also showed that in June of 2009, Montclair Township changed its refuse collection program from a seasonal once-per-week/twice-per-week refuse schedule to a year-round twice-per-week schedule, and that this change met all objectives and was considered a success by the Township.
