A firm protested the terms of an Army solicitation for trash collection services, contending that the requirements for an individual household trash weighing system and the mandatory use of a particular landfill site are unnecessary to meet the Army's needs. GAO held that the terms are not unduly restrictive because the requisite weighing system and the landfill site are available to all prospective offerors. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
