Request for Applications for Standing Offer Agreements


It is the intent of this specification to provide for the purchase of compacting garbage receptacles. The receptacles shall have:
• A stand-alone power source;
• The ability to alert the City when they require service or have been tampered with;
• The ability for the user to adjust weight of compacted litter;
• Ability of the compaction plate travel to within 6"-9" of the bottom of the bin liner to achieve the desired compaction performance;
• CSA or ULC compliant with redundant failsafe mechanisms (e.g. no single fault failure) on all safety critical system elements;
• Safety critical system elements (e.g. compactor emergency stop) shall operate independent of software or firmware based controls;
• Hopper mechanism design should prevent any possibility of a user (e.g. an outstretched arm) reaching the compaction mechanism through any opening;
• Solar-powered compacting waste systems should be field tested and proven to deliver marketed results in local regions;
• The units shall have the option to come with or be retrofitted with foot pedals;
• A one (1) year warranty; and
• A one (1) year software license included.

In addition to the specifications noted above, the compacting garbage receptacles should have the ability for additional options such as recyclers and Wi-Fi repeaters. The receptacles shall be deployed in at least three (3) Canadian or U.S. municipalities with over 100 plus units for more than three years. References may be asked for the Canadian and U.S. municipalities.
