Test Title



The City of Pleasanton is seeking proposals for routine hazardous waste management and emergency response. All work to be performed shall, where applicable, be in accordance with the City of Pleasanton Standard Specifications and Details , November 2016, and shall be overseen by the Environmental Compliance Supervisor. The City routinely generates hazardous waste at the Operations Service Center, and has a waste management program to ensure that all wastes generated by City activities are managed and disposed of properly and lawfully. Periodically, the City also requires assistance to perform nonemergency projects such as closure, decontamination, and disposal of hazardous waste storage/containment structures and homeless encampments. Lastly, 24-hour emergency response is needed in the event of a hazardous materials incident that requires services beyond those that the City is capable of providing internally.

The City is soliciting proposals from Contractors qualified to provide waste management services for: Routinely generated hazardous wastes, Universal wastes, electronic wastes, and non-friable asbestos pipe; non-routinely generated hazardous waste on a non-emergency basis; and occasional emergency response.


All work is performed in accordance with City Specifications and requirements, where applicable, and at the direction of the Environmental Compliance Supervisor.

One Contractor will be selected to provide services on an "as-needed" basis.

Typical types of activities performed under this contract include:

• Semi-annual collection of routinely generated hazardous wastes from the Operations Service Center located at 3333 Busch Rd in Pleasanton.

• Hazardous, non-hazardous or unknown waste sampling, characterization, profiling, packaging, transport and disposal (this includes preparation of profiles, manifests and land disposal restriction (LDR) notification/certification forms as necessary).

• Routine collection and proper disposal of universal waste and electronic waste, asbestos cement pipe, and other special wastes.

• Facility/equipment cleaning and decontamination, including bulk chemical storage tanks, wash rack sumps, containment sumps and associated piping, and proper disposal of the resultant wastes.

• Nonemergency projects such as closure, decontamination, and disposal of wastes from homeless encampments.

• Emergency response that requires rapid mobilization of equipment within two hours of notification. Types of responses include, but are not limited to, responding to: water treatment chemical releases, sludge releases, cleanup of hydraulic hose leaks, and discharges of water treatment chemicals into waterbodies.

• Treated Wood Waste disposal to a RWQCB-approved landfill.

There are no guarantees to the actual volume of work. Execution of an agreement will not constitute any guarantee of business.

Duration of the Contract resulting from this RFP is for three (3) years from (July1, 2018 through June 30, 2021) with an option to renew for one additional two-year term. This Contract may be renewed only by mutual agreement between the parties, with intent to renew to be conveyed to the other party sixty (60) days prior to the end of the current Contract term. Each party retains the right to not renew the Contract at the time of receipt of such notice of intent to renew. If the parties agree that the terms shall continue and provided the base amount is increased annually based on the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumer / All Items / San Francisco–Oakland-San Jose with February 2021 the base month.


The City requires a turn-key package of services managed through a single point of contact. The chosen Contractor is expected to provide most of the expertise and services required, and may act as the prime Contractor and project manager for any outside services, sub-consultants or subcontractors needed to fulfill the entire scope of services. This Contractor will take full responsibility for assuring the quality and timeliness of work of these outside services.

The City and the Contractor will work together to scope each project, including the cost and scheduling requirements to complete each task, prior to initiation of work. The Contractor is expected to pre-negotiate agreements with outside services as needed to fulfill the entire scope of services. This can include agreements with consultants, analytical laboratories, waste transporters, clean-up contractors and waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities as necessary to handle both emergency and routine conditions.

Note: Council consent and start dates are approximate.


1. Bidders conference will be held to:

a. Provide an opportunity for bidders to ask specific questions about the project and request RFP clarification.

b. Provide the City with an opportunity to receive feedback regarding the project and RFP.

2. All questions will be addressed, and the list of attendees will be included, in an RFP Addendum following the networking/bidders conference(s).

3. Potential bidders are strongly encouraged to attend networking/bidders conference(s) in order to further facilitate subcontracting relationships. Vendors who attend a networking/bidders conference will be added to the Vendor Bid List. Failure to participate in a networking/bidders conference will in no way relieve the Contractor from furnishing goods and/or services required in accordance with these specifications, terms and conditions. Attendance at a networking/bidders conference is highly recommended but is not mandatory.



All proposals will be screened for Completeness of Response, Financial Stability, and Debarment and Suspension on a pass/fail basis.  A City Selection Committee (CSC) composed of City staff and other parties with expertise or experience in hazardous waste management will then evaluate the remaining proposals in depth. The CSC will score and recommend a Contractor in accordance with the evaluation criteria set forth in this RFP.  Other than the initial pass/fail screening, the evaluation of the proposals shall be within the sole judgment and discretion of the CSC.

All contact during the evaluation phase shall be through Operations Services Department’s Management Analyst, Nhon Nguyen. Bidders shall neither contact nor lobby evaluators during the evaluation process. Attempts by Bidder to contact and/or influence members of the CSC may result in disqualification of Bidder.

The CSC will evaluate each proposal meeting the qualification requirements set forth in this RFP. Bidders should bear in mind that any proposal that is unrealistic in terms of the technical or schedule commitments, or unrealistically high or low in cost, will be deemed reflective of an inherent lack of technical competence or indicative of a failure to comprehend the complexity and risk of the City’s requirements as set forth in this RFP.

Bidders are advised that in the evaluation of cost it will be assumed that the unit price quoted is correct in the case of a discrepancy between the unit price and an extension.

As a result of this RFP, the City intends to award a contract to the responsible bidder whose response conforms to the RFP and whose bid presents the greatest value to the City, all evaluation criteria considered. The combined weight of the evaluation criteria is greater in importance than cost in determining the greatest value to the City. The goal is to award a contract to the bidder that proposes the best quality as determined by the combined weight of the evaluation criteria. The City may award a contract of higher qualitative competence over the lowest priced response.

The basic information that the bid package should contain is specified below. These specifications should be considered as minimum requirements. Other criteria may be added to further support the evaluation process whenever such additional criteria are deemed appropriate in considering the nature of the goods and/or services being solicited.

Each of the Evaluation Criteria below will be used in determining the quality of bidders’ proposals. The scores for all Evaluation Criteria will then be added, according to their assigned weight (below), to arrive at a score for each proposal. A proposal with a high total will be deemed of higher quality than a proposal with a lesser-weighted total. The final maximum score for any proposal is one hundred (100) points.

The evaluation process may include a two-stage approach including an initial evaluation of the written proposal and preliminary scoring to develop a short list of bidders that will continue to the final stage of oral presentation and interview and reference checks.  The preliminary scoring will be based on the total points from Cost, Understanding the Scope of Services, Relevant Experience, and References.

If the two-stage approach is used, the three bidders receiving the highest preliminary scores and with at least sixty (60) points will be invited to an oral presentation and interview.  Only the bidders meeting the short list criteria will proceed to the next stage.  All other bidders will be deemed eliminated from the process.  All bidders will be notified of the short list participants; however, the preliminary scores at that time will not be communicated to bidders.

Alternatively, the City may choose to award the contract based solely on the preliminary scores.

The Evaluation Criteria and their respective weights are as follows:
