Staff recommends approval of purchase requisition #37927 to Container Systems & Equipment for $191,675.00.
The Fleet Services Division has requested purchase of an automated solid waste collection truck to replace an existing truck in the fleet. The new truck will be assigned to the Solid Waste Division of Public Works.
The recommended truck is a 28 yard fully automatic side loading Lodal EVO T28. This truck uses an automated arm to reach out and grasp refuse containers set at the curbside. The arm then dumps the can into the truck and replaces it at its curbside location. This truck does not require the driver to get out of the truck and manually set each container to be emptied. Analysis has shown that the new automated truck will save time and facilitate collection of more containers than the existing side loading collection trucks.
approved, the purchase of this truck will replace unit #906 which
is a smaller 20 yard
1996 Lodal semi-automatic side loading truck. Unit #906 currently has 14,000
hours with maintenance costs of $31,630 since October 1, 2003.
The purchase is being made using an existing agreement between the City of Miami Beach, Florida and Container Systems & Equipment. The Purchasing Division has reviewed the bid and resulting agreement. The current agreement is in effect and has been made available to other government agencies. The agreement was formed after issuing a request for bids and using an open and competitive method to obtain the bid responses.
1. Approve purchase requisition #37927 to Container Systems & Equipment Co., Inc. for $191,675.00, or;
