A packet of the bid package cited that the organization is soliciting bids for “qualified contractors for hauling and disposal of refuse, processing of all recyclable material and providing all necessary equipment for three refuse transfer station sites.”

The three refuse transfer station sites are the Madison Station located on Route 728 at 77 Poorhouse Road, the Randolph Station located on U.S. Route 45 on Cumberland Road and the Hamilton Station located in Cartersville.

One compactor for all school trash would be located at Cumberland County High School, the packet cited.

The packet listed options for the contractor to base bid prices from. The contractor could provide services from one or more options. The first option includes providing all containers, hauling, and disposal from the school and three transfer station sites, with the county providing “the installation of these compactors … providing power to a fused, electrical disconnect box within 15 feet of the locations of the power units for the compactors.”

These items would also be provided with the second option.

The second option includes no charge for the disposal of solid waste, and contractors would provide only the containers and haul up to 100 miles from the exit point of Cumberland County, which is nearest to the disposal site, for the school and the transfer station sites.

The third option would include the contractor providing two residential trash bins at each county residence and county business. The packet cited that this would include “duplexes but not include apartment buildings or housing units with more than two units.” The county businesses bins would only be used for personal trash use.

“Apartment complexes will not require a residential trash bin for each unit but may be serviced otherwise,” the packet cited. “Bins and/or containers will be provided for all Cumberland County buildings and facilities as well as Cumberland County Public Schools. Bins and/or containers may be requested on a one-time basis from time-to-time at an additional charge to be paid by the requesting party. Disposal of commercial and demolition waste is the obligation of each individual or business at his, her or its expense.”

The packet cited that in the event a contractor is selected, the county will publicly post for inspection at the County Administration Office and online at
