    The Company wishes to hire a firm specializing in waste collection, for Recurring Services and On-Demand Services requested by the Company (“Services”).

    Services are divided into Recurring Services and On-Demand Services. Recurring Services are Services of a predetermined frequency that are invoiced to the Company on a monthly basis.

Both types of Services are described in greater detail below.

    a) Recurring Services:
    • Collect residual materials from compactors and containers according to the frequencies established by the Company described in Schedule 1A herein, with such frequencies subject to amendment by the Company at its discretion;

    o The Preferred Proponent’s driver may be required to open enclosed areas to access to the containers.
    • The supply, delivery, installation, and electrical connection of the Equipment required for the waste management program (including but not limited to containers, compactors, mechanical arms, rails, safety cages, and other required equipment). The number and type of Equipment are described in greater detail in Schedule 1A herein, and shall be subject to amendment by the Company at its discretion;
    • Installation and uninstallation, once a year, of the compactor at Jacques-Cartier Pier, as well as the rail system used to anchor the compactor to the ground, on a date to be determined in agreement with the Company;
    • Transportation and disposal of waste off site.
    • Containers and compactors must be digitally coded.
    • The frequency of the Recurring Services varies according to the seasons (winter and spring); these seasonal frequencies are described in greater detail in Schedule 1A herein.
    • The Company, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to change the frequency of Recurring Services, the requested collection schedule, and the number and type of Equipment required.

    b) On-Demand Services:
    • Services upon request 365 days/year, as required by the Company, for waste collection, Equipment rental, transportation and disposal, at the rates provided for such services.

    The objectives are to:
    • Obtain prompt and preferential services upon request for the Company’s entire premises (the “Site”).
