Request for Proposals: SB 1383 Compost Procurement Broker Services

The City of Alameda (“City”) is requesting proposals from qualified and experienced compost brokers (Proposers) to provide comprehensive compost brokerage services in the Greater Bay Area of California, in accordance with the principles outlined in California Senate Bill (SB) 1383 and the sustainability goals set forth by the City of Alameda. With a commitment to environmental stewardship and waste reduction, the City aims to establish a partnership with a knowledgeable and dedicated compost broker to support our efforts in achieving compliance with SB 1383 regulations.

The main objective of the project will be to procure compost on behalf of the City in order to fulfill Alameda’s SB 1383 procurement requirement of 6471 tons of organic waste products (compost or mulch). While the City strives to apply as much of this required material locally, due to space and site-specific limitations, it may not be possible to fulfil the total requirement within the jurisdiction. The City seeks a qualified Proposer to provide compost brokerage services by way of direct service provider agreements with the options outlined in the scope of services.
