City of Toronto receives 51 responses to its Request for Expressions of Interest for provision of new and emerging technologies to manage Toronto's residual solid waste
Works and Emergency Services -- The City of Toronto has received 51 responses
to its Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) for new and emerging
technologies, policies and practices to process and divert from landfill the
residual solid waste remaining after diversion programs such as the Blue Box,
Green Bin organics processing and leaf and yard waste composting. This
represents up to 40 per cent of the municipal solid waste stream. The City is
seeking technologies that may incorporate physical, biological, chemical and/or
advanced thermal processes.

The deadline for the REOI document (#9155-03-7283) was 12 noon on July 14, 2003.

This REOI is not a pre-qualification stage - it is the first step toward a
formal request for proposals that the City expects to issue in 2004.
Respondents to this REOI may be invited to participate in a forum to present
their technologies to City of Toronto staff, politicians and the Citizen and
Expert Advisory Group assisting the City to recommend technologies for managing
Toronto's residual waste.
