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.

  • Are all your suppliers vetted and accredited?

    Yes. Dependent on the product category, we will have assessed the supplier’s credentials to be able to supply the goods and/or services.  Please see the SQ (selection questionnaire) questions relative to the product category you are interested in.  High risk food suppliers e.g. sandwich suppliers are also continually audited to ensure they meet food safety requirements.
