Solid waste disposal contracts negotiated for Council approval
Works and Emergency Services (WES) --- Today, the City of Toronto
announced it has successfully negotiated contracts for its solid waste disposal
needs with Rail Cycle North and Republic Services (Canada) Ltd. Both contracts
contain a "no put or pay" provision for municipal waste, meaning the city only
pays for the amount of municipal waste actually disposed. Staff will bring to
City Council's October 3-5, 2000 meeting, a report containing recommendations
for execution of the negotiated contracts, along with the actual negotiated
contracts, for formal adoption by Council.

Angelos Bacopoulos, General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services stated,
"These contracts secure Toronto's disposal needs over the next 20 years.
Ultimately, the goal is to minimize the amount of waste, increase diversion and
reduce Toronto's need to dispose. We will build on the 250,000 tonnes per year
that we divert through composting and recycling by implementing new contracts
for diversion and engagement of new and emerging technologies."
