Omaha, Neb., Rejects $4M Bid to Process Recyclables

SEATTLE (Waste 360): In October, the city of Omaha, Neb., received a bid from Firstar Fiber to process the city’s recycling. The bid was the only one the city received, and it was nearly double the city’s estimated costs at a price tag of $4 million.

Earlier this week, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert rejected the bid, pushing the city’s Public Works Department to now explore other options. In addition, Stothert asked the Public Works Department to bid out the contract again, which could draw more competition for the bid.
