Sale of Copper Street Light Wire Assets


Request for Expressions of Interest and Statements of Qualifications

The City of Surrey invites submissions from respondents that describe the desire and capability of the Respondent to undertake the purchase and recycling of copper street light wire assets. 

The City owns and maintains approximately 26,000 freestanding, ornamental streetlights.  To mitigate ongoing issues with street light wire theft, the City is investigating the replacement of existing copper street light wire with aluminum wire.  As part of the project, the City would like to secure an exclusive deal to gain revenue of our removed copper wire assets.

Copper wire assets would be available to the successful Respondents in discontinuous sections (i.e. typically 50 metre lengths or less).  Surplus copper wire assets would be supplied to the successful Respondent with RW or TW insulation jackets intact.

The City may contract the removal of the Goods to more than one contractor.  The Respondent is expected to have the capability to dispose/recycle the Goods and provide details on the possible method that may be used to coordinate the disposal/recycling of the Goods.
