Food Waste Management Service Requirement and Scope

During market research TUCO verified a requirement for various food waste stream concepts to embrace innovation in food waste that works in conjunction with a general food waste collection from food waste recyclates. TUCO Member requirements vary in both resource and on-site space/sites. Some member sites are campus based others are city based, hence a need for separate Lots.

  • Lot 1 - On-Site Food Waste Innovation
  • Lot 2 - Waste Disposable Cups
  • Lot 3 - Waste Coffee Grounds
  • Lot 4 - Off Site Food Waste Collection
  • Lot 5 – Food Waste Oil Collection and Disposal Service
  • Lot 6 - Catering Packaging (glass, cardboard, plastic, single use plastic, tin, tetra, etc.) Collection and Recycling Service
  • Lot 7 - Compostable Packaging Waste Collection Service
  • Lot 8 - Food Waste Management Systems
  • Lot 9 - Surplus Catering Equipment

Each collection service should be cost effective and efficient to the Universities, Colleges and the wider Public Sector in a sustainable manner and must be diverted from landfill. The DPS was advertised to provide national coverage, however, each Lot also consists of regional suppliers.
