The City of Omaha Finds a Path to a More Sustainable Solid Waste Future

September 12, 2019

Omaha, as a Metropolitan Class City is required to provide solid waste services by statute without imposing a charge upon residents. The City’s current contract, which commenced in 2006 and runs through 2020, was not supporting their desire for a more efficient solid waste collection system. A new contract would support their goals of providing a more sustainable and efficient collections model.

Michael J. Miller, CHMM, SCS Engineers.

Mike Miller, of SCS Engineers, will present the actions Omaha took leading up to their Request For Bid (RFB) development. Mike will go into detail about the key RFB elements leading to significant interest and competition for the City’s next solid waste collections contract.

Additionally, he covers the actions completed including:

  • Yard Waste Study
  • Public Opinion Survey
  • Peer Community Benchmarking Study
  • Pilot Study
  • Post-pilot Public Opinion Survey
  • Public Outreach Meetings
  • And the RFB process up to and thru the award


2019 ISOSWO Fall Conference details here.
