Minutes of the Special Board Meeting of the Regional District of Central Okanagan Thursday, April 10, 2008
1. New Business
1.1 Award of Contract - Recycling Depot and Waste Transfer Station Operations and Collection Service (All Directors - Weighted Vote)
Staff noted that based on volumes of recyclables collected in 2007, the costs for the operations of the recycling depots will be $365,000 per year for the five year period ($1,825,000 for five years or $7.15 per household per year). If volumes collected are higher or lower than the 2007 volumes, costs will vary accordingly. The costs with the new contract will increase 14%, commencing July 2008.

The cost of the operations of the North Westside Road and Trader's Cove waste transfer sites will be $105,000 per year ($525,000 for five years or about $81.00 per household per year). The costs of the two stations' operations are presently about $88,000. Again, costs may vary depending on the volumes of wastes collected and the number of hauls that must be made to landfills and/or the recycling processing plant. The increase of contract costs by 20% is primarily attributed to the significant increases in fuel and labour costs.

The cost increases were anticipated and built into the 2008 budget. Okanagan Environmental Services name has been changed to Okanagan Environmental Waste Systems Ltd.

#89/08 GIVEN/DAY

THAT the Regional Board award the Recycling Depot and Waste Transfer Stations Operations and Collection Service contract to Okanagan Environmental Waste Systems Ltd. for the five year period and with a two year extension option, beginning July 1, 2008, for a total cost during the five year period of $1,825,000, as well as a total cost for the North Westside Road and Trader's Cover waste transfer sites of $525,000.

CARRIED

Highlights of the Special Regional Board Meeting– April 10, 2008
Recycling Depot & Transfer Stations Contract

The Regional Board has awarded a five year contract for the operation and collection of materials at recycling depots, waste transfer stations and the cleanup of illegal dump sites on Crown Land. Okanagan Environmental Waste Systems Limited was one of three qualified bids received for a combined services contract, which begins July 1st.

Over the five year term based on the volume of recyclables collected, the cost of operating four recycling depots will be $1,825,000 and will see improvements in the layout of each site and bin enclosures in order to improve traffic flow and parking. This cost could vary depending whether the volumes of materials collected are higher or lower than in 2007. The cost of operating the Trader’s Cove and North Westside transfer stations will be $525,000 and takes into account higher fuel and labour costs since the last contract was awarded five years ago. The illegal dumping site cleanup cost remains at approximately $17,000 per year and the contractor will provide improved equipment to access remote locations on Crown Land.

2007 - 2008 contract for the Sugar Loaf transfer station
that RDCO released through the Freedom of Information Act

RDCO released this contract through the Freedom of Information Act request of July 2, 2008 but didn't actually send this information until April 9, 2009 along with the apology letter dated Feb 24, 2009 addressed to the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner.
Apology Letter page 1 | page 2 | page 3

Below is the BFI Contract January 2007 until May 2008 which shows that BFI is responsible to supply the transfer station attendant at Sugar Loaf transfer station.

The Contractor shall provide all labour necessary for the operation and maintenance of the station owned by the Regional District during the term of this agreement and shall provide staff for operating of the station for approximately twenty hours per week or as otherwise agreed in writing by the parties.

This contract was received April 9, 2009, and the contract below which is different and says it is for the same time period was received August 1, 2008.

The Contractor shall provide all labour necessary for the operation and maintenance of the Station owned by the Regional District during the term of this agreement and shall provide staff for operating of the station for approximately twenty hours per week or as otherwise agreed in writing by the parties.

The transfer station hours are Mon. Wed., Sat, and Sun 8 AM until noon.  So how do the transfer stations operating hours constitute 20 hours as stated in the contract above when the transfer station is only open for 16 hours per week?

On August 1, 2008 RDCO released this copy (below) of the Jan 2007 - May 2008 contract before the above copy of the contract was released April 9, 2009.  Maybe RDCO did not realize that RDCO had already released a copy of this contract months earlier, and the complainant forgot that RDCO had already released a copy as well.  The complainant thought the copies already received were older contracts, and that RDCO was sending a new contract.  Just realizing this May 11, 2009 and after looking at the two contract copies, they are not the same.  The above contract is 10 plus pages long and the contract below is only 6 pages long.  The second copy RDCO sent (above) did not contain schedule "A" and "B".  The first copy of the contract that RDCO sent (below) contained something (it doesn't say "schedule A or B" but does say Employment Agreement).  Another freedom of information request asking for schedule "A" and "B" was sent to RDCO on April 24, 2009.  The original Freedom of information request asking for this information was made July 2, 2008.

Contract Approved

The Regional Board gave approval to a five-year contract with the North Westside Ratepayers Association for the operation of the North Westside Road Waste Transfer and Recycling Station.  For the past five years, the Ratepayers Association has administered the operation of this waste transfer and recycling station that services approximately 600 homes at the north end of Westside Road.  The site was originally established when the Bouleau Dump was closed in 1996.  Under the terms of the agreement the Regional District pays the Association a sum of $9,152.00 for each year and in return the association handles all the administration including staffing for four mornings a week.

Recycling Depots Re-designed
Our recycling depots are being RE-designed. This weekend the four area recycling depots will be switched over from the old-style bins to more convenient and easy to access low-profile collection bins.

“The new bins are only about five feet tall so it will be very easy for everyone, including children, to throw their recyclables in,” says Rae Stewart, Waste Reduction Facilitator. “And because of the size of the new bins, no one will have to climb any stairs or hoist their recyclables over their heads.”

Stewart adds that to make recycling even easier, residents will now be able to mix all their recyclable materials together – except glass and cardboard – when they drop them off at the recycling depots. “You won’t have to separate your paper from your plastic containers or tin cans, but can simply mix everything together. Glass and cardboard will still have to be separated, though.”

The change-over will happen over a couple of days at the end of June and the beginning of July. As there may be some short delays in set-up, residents are asked to be patient until the new depots are fully operational. The depots will remain open during the change-over and hours of operation will be the same as now.

The recycling depots accept the identical materials as the blue bag program: all paper and cardboard, tin and aluminum cans, household plastic containers #1-7 and plastic film like plastic bags and shrink wrap. The recyclables should be clean (rinsed and empty) before bringing them to the depots. There is no charge for the service.

OK Environmental Waste Systems, a local waste management company, was awarded the contract to operate the depots for the next five years. For more information, follow this link to our Recycling Depots webpage or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250-469-6250.

Highlights of the Regional Board Meeting– June 23, 2008
Residential Recycling Processing Contract
The Regional Board has awarded a seven year contract for the processing and marketing of materials from the residential blue bag recycling program to begin in March 2009.

Metro has been the sub-contractor for the Regional District’s curbside and depot recycling program since 2000.

Gypsum Recycling Contract Awarded
The Regional Board has awarded a five year contract for collection and recycling of gypsum and drywall materials for a price of $125 per tonne. Okanagan Gypsum Recycling Enterprises was selected after an evaluation process as having the most favourable of five proposals received in response to a Request for Proposals involving the Regional District’s of North Okanagan, Central Okanagan, Okanagan- Similkameen and the District Municipality of Summerland.

Also did you know the Regional District of Central Okanagan held a public hearing April 27, 2009 in regards to rezoning the La Casa transfer station land, publishing it in the Kelowna newspapers instead of the Vernon Morning Star which is the only newspaper delivered to the area being rezoned to industrial

A portion of the public hearing (La Casa transfer station portion) was laid aside after the fact, due to the Regional District of Central Okanagan not publishing notice in the Vernon Morning Star which is the only newspaper delivered to the area affected.  Only publishing notice of a public hearing in the Kelowna newspaper invalidates the entire bylaw!  Does it not?

See Community Charter below

Item 1 Zoning Amendment Bylaw No 871-194.pdf

---------------

Community Charter
Division 4 — Public Notice and Access to Records


Requirements for public notice

94 (1) If this section applies, the applicable notice must be

(a) posted in the public notice posting places (bulletin boards), and

(b) published in accordance with this section.

(2) Subject to subsection (4) [If publication under subsection (2) is not practicable, the notice may be given in the areas by alternative means], publication under subsection (1) (b)

(a) must be in a newspaper that is distributed at least weekly

(i) in the area affected by the subject matter of the notice, and

(ii) if the area affected is not in the municipality, also in the municipality, and

(b) unless otherwise provided, must be once each week for 2 consecutive weeks.
 

okanaganlakebc.ca finds it odd that the Regional District of Central Okanagan's policy is to keep public land alongside Okanagan Lake in public hands, but yet supports La Casa purchasing the crown land to place a transfer station.

Westbank First Nations opposes La Casa purchasing this crown land for a transfer station and park.
