New 3 year contract with AJ Blosenski

We are aware of the concerns raised by residents following receipt of a recent bill for trash and recycling services from AJ Blosenski.  Blosenski was first contracted in 2014 with a 3-year contract and then extended to an additional 5-year contract in 2017 which expired on December 31. 2022.  The rate for trash and recycling service remained unchanged throughout the course of this 8-year contract period. 

 

The township was informed that, based on rising costs, Blosenski was unable to extend the current contract an additional year and the contract for trash and recycling services in Upper Providence Township was put out to bid in November 2022.  While the rate for service through Blosenski increased, it was 76% less expensive than the next lowest bidder.  In December 2022, the township approved a 3-year contract with Blosenski for trash and recycling service.

 

Since 1990, Upper Providence Township has negotiated trash and recycling contracts on behalf of township residents.  Historically, the township has received a lower cost for service based on bulk rate contractual bidding.  Township Council is currently exploring improvements to the current system to provide greater flexibility, accountability, and management of trash and recycling services for residents of Upper Providence Township.
