Posted Date : October 06,2021
Product (RFP/RFQ/RFI/Solicitation/Tender/Bid Etc.) ID : FOOD-6364
Government Authority located in Montpelier, Vermont; USA based organization looking for expert vendor for food scrap collection services.
[A] Budget: Looking for proposal
[B] Scope of Service:
Vendor needs to provide food scrap including peels, rinds, cores, eggshells, seeds, pits, bones, shells, coffee grounds and filters, loose-leaf tea, and fats or oils or grease collection services to the government authority located in Montpelier, VT.
– Keeping food scraps out of the trash reduces greenhouse gas emissions and saves landfill space. Much wasted food is perfectly good (or would be good if eaten in time) and can be fed to people instead of going in the trash. Food scraps can also feed animals, create renewable energy, or produce compost, which restores soils.
– Collect food scraps in a container. There is no right way to do this. You can buy a food scrap bucket, reuse a large yogurt tub, or keep a plastic bag in the freezer.
– Only food scraps that have not touched meat or fish or their oils or juices may be fed to pigs (unless it’s food scraps from your own house fed to your own pigs).
– Pipes and septic systems are not designed to handle large amounts of food scraps, particularly oils and grease, so putting them down the drain can clog pipes and lead to a need to pump septic tanks more often. Food scraps can also create costly problems for municipal sewer systems. Composting is a better option and reduces the risk of clogs, backups, and sewage releases.
– The removal of food scraps from rentals and provide durable and water-tight receptacles for food scraps. Commercial landlords are not required to provide this service.
