Procurement of a Lessee/Operator for the City’s Southeast Landfill (City of Fort Worth, Texas)

GBB helped the City of Fort Worth, Texas, to procure a lessee/operator for the City’s Southeast Landfill and secure long-term disposal services for the portion of the City’s waste that is not recycled and/or processed for beneficial use.  The GBB Project Team assisted the City in deciding whether to retain ownership and continue to operate the Southeast Landfill or to sell or lease the Landfill to a qualified private contractor.  The City decided to pursue a competitive procurement of a lease and operate contractor, with the City retaining landfill ownership.  GBB assisted in preparing the procurement documents, evaluation of proposals, proposer interviews, and negotiations with the selected proposer, Allied Waste (dba Trinity Waste Services).

The Lease and Operating Agreement between the City and Trinity, with performance guaranty by Allied Waste industries, Inc. (which was acquired by Republic Services, Inc. in 2008), provides substantial financial benefits and disposal security features for the City.
