7/22/2021 8/1/2021 The District of Columbia Office of Contracting and Procurement (“OCP”), on behalf of the District Department of Transportation (“DDOT”) (the “District”) is seeking a contractor to provide disposal facilities to dispose of debris materials that include concrete/asphalt mix, dirt debris, sand, gravel, topsoil, brick and other recyclable/non-recyclable debris consistent with current environmental standards. The District will utilize its own labor and trucks to travel to the disposal site. D.C Materials, Inc. and another are the only vendors that provides Construction and Demolition landfills services within a 50-mile radius. These are the only two vendors running Construction and Demolition landfills in the area that will accept construction AND demolition materials within current environmental standards that DDOT continuously has the need to dispose of due to the restoration of District roadways. A Construction & Demolition landfill receives construction and demolition debris, which typically consists of roadwork material, excavated material, demolition waste, construction/renovation waste, and site clearance waste. Most common municipal waste stations accept trash and do not accept construction & demolition materials. Only D.C. Materials, Inc. and another vendor are considered Construction & Demolition landfill stations leaving us with a limited amount of vendor options. The second vendor is 43 miles away and even in non-rush traffic the commute from the District is estimated in google maps to be one hour and 14 minutes. The District needs to make three to four trips a day and such a commute would result in a financial (time, labor, wear and tear, gasoline) hardship on the District and would require the full time commitment of the trucks and labor in disposal of waste. DC Materials aligns with the Districts needs for a disposal facility in that it is 4.9 miles from the District thus allowing for three to four trips a day and for the trucks and drivers to be utilized for additional District needs DC Materials Determination & Findings DDOT Carol.hessler@dc.gov
