As previously communicated, Call2Recycle is seeking sorting and processing service providers for single-use and rechargeable batteries collected in Canada and the U.S., through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process. Call2Recycle has initiated the next phase of its procurement process, which includes the following:
- Retained third-party Reclay StewardEdge Inc., a renowned, Toronto-based, international consultancy, to manage the proposal solicitation and evaluation process.
- Distributed RFP documents on February 27 to over 30 interested proponents (U.S.-, Canadian- and Internationally-based) who initially responded to the Request for Information (RFI) issued in November 2014. Only service providers who responded to the RFI were invited to submit proposals at this time. Due to the commercially-sensitive information, names of the proponents will not be released.
- Held a proponents call, moderated by Reclay StewardEdge on March 11 to answer questions.
Proposals are due by April 27 at 4 pm EST and will be evaluated by a review committee consisting of both Call2Recycle personnel and third-party experts. Call2Recycle expects to begin announcing service providers by mid-summer 2015. Any questions may be directed to Tim Buwalda, RFP Coordinator, Reclay StewardEdge Inc. at 407-756-7220 or firstname.lastname@example.orgShare
