In 2013, Souderton Borough Council conducted a survey of residents on their opinion of utilizing a single trash hauler to provide solid waste collection services and recycling services to our residents and smaller commercial businesses. The survey was distributed to approximately 2,100 accounts with an excellent response rate of 910 responses. In general the residents are satisfied with the current system of private subscriptions; however, there is strong support for switching to a single hauler municipal contract if economically advantageous. Based on this response, Souderton Borough Council has authorized the drafting of contract specifications and bid documents to obtain competitive quotations.
Please review the draft contract specifications and bid documents for a potential municipal trash collection contract for Souderton Borough. Souderton Borough Council desires to have interested contractors review the draft specifications and offer questions, comments and suggestions for Borough Council to consider prior to issuing a formal RFP.
A public hearing has been scheduled for Monday December 1, 2014 beginning at 2:00 pm in the Council Chambers of the Souderton Municipal Building, 31 W. Summit Street, Souderton Pennsylvania for contractors to make comments on the proposed specifications and bid documents. Borough Council will also receive any written comments through December 1, 2014.

Spot Collections scheduled to begin the week of October 27th
Rake your leaves to the curb line of the street for collection by the Borough. Please note that the Borough will not collect leaves in alleys. Leaves are collected through vacuum equipment and disposed at a recycling facility. Please keep in mind that we cannot pick up piles of leaves with excessive quantities of sticks, stones, hedge clippings, plant materials, and other trash. These items will damage or clog the equipment or jeopardize our ability to dispose of the load at the recycling facility.
Collections will alternate each week between east and west sections of the Borough. Rake your leaves out to the street by the beginning of the scheduled collection week; remember that once the crew has passed your street they will not return until the next scheduled collection time.
