Orange County, Fla., Announces Event to Discuss New Recycling Facility
Orange County, Fla. – As part of the recently announced Request for Information (RFI) to gather input for a new recycling facility, Orange County and the Orange County Utilities Solid Waste Division announce the date and schedule for the next step, a Market Sounding event.
The in-person event, set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., July 26, in the Venice Ballroom at the Orange County Renaissance Senior Center at 3800 S. Econlockhatchee Trail in Orlando, is open to potential project participants and supporters.
The purpose of the event is to seek input into the planned release of a Request for Proposal (RFP) competitive bidding process for a long-term Public-Private Partnership for designing, constructing and operating the new Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) within the county.
The Market Sounding will include a discussion of Orange County’s recycling program, regional recycling markets, updates since the RFI was released, plans for issuing a RFP, and other topics related to the project. There also will be time allotted for open discussion and questions/answers.
Additionally, transportation will be provided for participants to visit the dormant MRF at the Orange County Landfill and view the potential property available for project development.
To insure appropriate resources at the Market Sounding, respondents are respectfully requested to RSVP by July 15 at www.ocfl.net/UtilitiesRSVP.
