West Windsor Awards Reduced Cost Solid Waste Collection Contract

West Windsor, N.J.  – Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh is pleased to announce that West Windsor Township has awarded a new Solid Waste Collection contract that will save the Township significant money while preserving services at current levels.  Mayor Hsueh reported, “This contract, awarded to Waste Management of New Jersey, Inc. of Ewing New Jersey, will save $535,265 over five years compared to current costs.  It will save $126,252 in the first year alone.”  In addition, the Township requested use of Clean Fuel Technology.  Waste Management agreed to use bio-diesel fuel thereby being more environmentally responsible.  Two bid proposals were received.

The formal agreement is for one year commencing on February 1, 2011 with the option for the Township to renew annually for four additional years through January 31, 2016.  Services will remain as one pick-up per week with two pick-ups per week during the summer months.  Dumpster pick-ups will also be covered for Township facilities and certain residential and recreational areas.  There are approximately 7,013 residential units which will equate to $5.34 per month/per household for waste collection.  This equates to approximately $64.00 per year per household collection which represents a savings of approximately $12.00 from last year’s contract.  This does not include the cost of disposal which is paid to the Mercer County Improvement Authority (MCIA).

West Windsor Township actively pursues sustainable practices and promotes natural resource management.  The Township has a history of employing alternative methods to reduce green house emissions including the use of hybrid vehicles, solar panels, energy efficient lighting, and the installation of multi-use bicycle and pedestrian facilities.  Requiring Clean Fuel Technology was one more way that West Windsor could further this effort.
