Resolution to Authorize Contract Amendment Number 7 with Recycle Ann Arbor for Municipal Resource Recovery Services
Attached for your review and consideration is a resolution to approve and authorize Amendment Number 7 to the Municipal Resources Recovery Services contract with Recycle Ann Arbor (RAA).

On December 15, 2003 City Council approved a ten-year contract with RAA for collection of recyclable materials throughout the City by approving Resolution R-517-12-03. On March 15, 2010 this contract was extended for an additional five years until June 30, 2018 as part of Amendment 2 which was approved by Resolution R-10-071.
