Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to enter into an Industrial Waste and Disposal Services Agreement and Supplemental Terms to the Agreement with Waste Management of Texas, Inc. for landfill disposal services.

 

Body

The City of Round Rock operates the Brushy Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (BCRWWTP) for the partner Cities of Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, and Round Rock. The BCRWWTP hauls sludge from daily operations to relieve the plant of the daily intake solids. Currently, the BCRWWTP has partnered with Sheridan Environmental and Walker Aero for hauling and disposal of the sludge; however, their facilities from time to time are not able to keep up with the volume of solids generated by the BCRWWTP. When this happens, the City must dispose of the sludge at the Williamson County Landfill which increases operational costs. The City is requesting to enter into a contract with the Williamson County Landfill to protect the City from sludge disposal complications in the future.

The Utilities and Environmental Services Department recommends a three-year contract not to exceed $850,000 per year or $2,550,000 for the term of the contract. The City of Round Rock’s portion will not exceed 60.30% of the 2020 fiscal year annual cost, which is $512,550.

 

Cost: $2,550,000
