I thought burning garbage can be profitable?

it probably only is if you don’t have to scrub the particulates. and/or if you have an immediate use for the heat. not sure burning it here to convert to grid electricity is effective.

Gvrd sells $8,000,000 in garbage electricity every year and also sells the metals.

Isn't that very close to farm fields?

Of bigger concern would be the wetland bog that borders it. Pretty much impossible to stop the leaching of metals and other toxins in that direction.

Much of what you now perceive as "wetland bog" is actually reclaimed landfill from decades past.

All professionally managed, and completely under the control of a litany of municipal and provincial inspectors and engineers.

A little leachate adds flavour?

Here we go...three years of crash...bang...boom in the Heals Valley.

 

You gotta love how the CRD slides this stuff out on a Friday afternoon with a VERY short notice of a mandatory site meeting 3 business days later. One would almost think that they have their short list of contractors at the ready. 

 

CAPITAL REGIONAL DISTRICT

HARTLAND LANDFILL
LANDFILL AIRSPACE/AGGREGATE PRODUCTION 2021, 2022 AND 2023

CONTRACT 30.21.04-01

INVITATION TO TENDER

Sealed Tenders, plainly marked on the envelope "Tender for Hartland Landfill - Landfill Airspace/Aggregate Production 2021, 2022 and 2023, Contract 30.21.04-01" will be received by the General Manager, Parks & Environmental Services of the Capital Regional District at their offices at 625 Fisgard Street, Victoria, British Columbia up to 2:00:00 p.m. local time on Wednesday, June, 16, 2021, at which time they will be opened in public.

The works to be constructed under this Contract generally include the following:

The work covered by these Specifications consists of the stripping, drilling, blasting, grading. breaking, crushing, screening, hauling, placing, and stockpiling, of rock materials at Hartland landfill.  Specifically, the work involves the provision of labour and materials to strip, drill, blast, and extract rock from some 445,000 m3 of in-situ rock and site preparation materials.

This work will be done in two (2) phases over three (3) calendar years. .Specifications, Drawings, Contract Documents, and Tender Form may be downloaded from www.crd.bc.ca/about/contracts-rfps/ and at www.bcbid.gov.bc.ca.

The lowest or any tender will not necessarily be accepted.

A mandatory pre-tender site meeting will be held at Hartland Landfill Learning Centre, #1 Hartland Avenue at 1:30:00 p.m., local time on Wednesday, May 19, 2021.

Have known people in purchasing over the years who have told me that every once in a while someone figures out that a contract should have gone out to tender that did not. They then run a process after the fact to cover their butts. Usually competitors that complain get another contract and/or they time or word the RFP in such a way that only the company that won bids anyways.

 

Not saying that is what is going on here as I don't know.

 

Read any AG report at any level of Government and they always point out issues with procurement.

 

Here are my favorites that I have seen over the years to drive a contract to a single vendor

 

- Timelines so tight that nobody can properly price and bid but of course the preferred vendor had the details ahead of time.

- Requirements that only one company can meet which were taken from the preferred vendors spec sheet.

- Made up certifications that the vendor must have that nobody can validate.

- Insurance or registration requirements that are impossible to get but are then waived for the preferred vendor after the contract is awarded

- Scopes of work that are far greater than what is needed but then scaled back to match what the preferred vendor has proposed

- Requirements that are not in the RFP but become decision points in selection.
