In accordance with NYC Local Law 199 of 2019, the NY City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is required to release a Request for Proposal (RFP) for waste collection services in designated commercial waste zones (CWZ) by November 20, 2020.  DSNY Plans to issue a two-part RFP with two different submission due dates, one for Part 1 and one for Part 2.

The Part 1 RFP was released on November 19, 2020, and can be found at .  The Part 2 RFP will be issued at a later date, with a new due date.  The Part 1 RFP requests information about proposers’ qualifications to participate in the CWZ program.  The Part 2 RFP will request a full technical/financial proposal, including individual Plans required by LL 199.  Only those proposers that respond to the Part 1 RFP will be able to submit a response to the Part 2 RFP.

The Part 1 RFP requests the following information:

  1. Compliance with Licensing Requirements
  2. Key Staff Information
  3. Financial and Business Information
  4. Compliance History

There will be a virtual RFP Informational Conference for the Part 1 RFP on Thursday, January 7, 2021 at 11 am.  Attendance is optional, but highly encouraged.  Two pre-Proposal Part 2 Conferences will be held in the future.  Proposers must attend one of these conferences to be eligible to submit a Part 2 RFP response.

Potential Proposers are encouraged to pay attention for additional information from DSNY, including additional Rules for the CWZ Program.
