TSG Awarded One-Year Sweeping Contract in Bloomfield
August 13, 2015
The Shauger Group (TSG) is excited to have been awarded the Town-wide Street Sweeping Services contract with Bloomfield. The contract is for one year and is the first ever sweeping agreement with the town.
Bids for the project were received on June 30, 2015 – TSG was the lowest responsible bidder out of four companies.
About the Contract
TSG will street sweep Bloomfield’s 85 linear miles of roadway at various times Monday through Friday. In designated areas with restricted times for sweeping, two to three-hour intervals will be used daily, as posted. These areas are to be swept one side per day, and the opposite side will be swept the following day.
Areas that have not been posted (no parking restrictions) will be swept on both sides, being swept through the week between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., as requested by the Bloomfield Department of Public Works.
In terms of equipment, Bloomfield required a minimum of two sweepers, unless requested otherwise. According to James Tiernan, Operations Manager of the Landscaping and Cleaning Divisions at TSG, the company will be using two out of the 15 state-of-the-art Elgin Broom Bear sweepers, which have a sixty-six-inch-long main broom, along with side brooms.
Helping Out a Neighbor
TSG is thrilled to add another Essex County town to its street-sweeping list of clients. Less than two miles separate TSG’s corporate headquarters in East Orange from Bloomfield.
Donald Shauger, Executive Vice President of TSG, is looking forward to this new opportunity.
“We [at TSG] are very delighted to have this contract official and ready to go,” said Shauger. “We can’t wait to use our state-of-the-art equipment, especially in our neighboring town of Bloomfield.”
