Citizen Survey and Workshops on Waste Collection

Should the City seek a new solid waste collection and disposal services provider beginning July 1, 2018?


Friday, January 20th, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Community Hall, 711 Highland Avenue

Thursday, February 2nd, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Veteran’s Hall, 401 Highland Avenue


The City of Piedmont is seeking resident input at community workshops and via an online survey on a new waste collection and disposal agreement, which would come into force on July 1, 2018.

The current solid waste collection and disposal agreement with Republic Services ends on June 30, 2018 and the City of Piedmont has begun the process of selecting the next solid waste services provider. Community members are invited to participate in two workshops to help assist the City in securing quality garbage, recycling, and composting services. Community input is sought to assess the community’s opinion of the current solid waste service offerings, and to determine the most appropriate garbage and recycling services for Piedmont customers for the next ten years. The goal of this effort is to reduce waste sent to the landfill while continuing to provide quality services to the Piedmont community.

For more information on the current procurement effort and to add your name to an email notification list for the solid waste services procurement process, please contact Jennifer Gavin at jgavin@ci.piedmont.ca.us or 510-420-3054.


On November 7, 2016 the City Council approved a consulting services agreement with R3 Consulting Group (R3) in the amount not to exceed $87,240 to help the City with the request for proposals for a new solid waste services agreement. R3 will conduct the two workshops, educating the public on the procurement process and soliciting community input.

The deadline for participating in the survey is February 20, 2017.
