Request For Proposals: Feasibility Study For A Permanent Facility for Collection and Disposal of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) in McLean County, Illinois

Posted in news, and RFP

The Ecology Action Center invites proposals for a feasibility study to explore a permanent facility for the collection and disposal of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) in McLean County, Illinois.

Permanent household hazardous waste collection facilities are an essential part of municipal recycling and solid waste management infrastructure. Removing HHW from the waste stream reduces toxicity found in nearby landfills and in the storm water system. Permanent collection facilities are assumed to be more cost effective than single day events and allow for greater participation from the public.

The Ecology Action Center (EAC) is a non-profit environmental agency with a mission to inspire and assist residents of McLean County in creating, strengthening, and preserving a healthy environment. The EAC acts as the solid waste agency for McLean County, Bloomington, and Normal, Illinois.  On behalf of the 170,000 residents of McLean County, Illinois, the EAC is examining the feasibility of such a facility in partnership with McLean County, City of Bloomington, Town of Normal, Bloomington Normal Water Reclamation District, and other community partners as well as the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.
