Waste ManagementThe resources we consume - water, energy air, land, trees, minerals - are finite, and will not be there for future generations if do not conserve them.
ConsultingTedcor applies its wealth of experience to provide clients with innovative and creative solutions in the waste sector.
TEDCOR recognised the need for waste collection and disposal services in disadvantaged areas, where local authorities are often hampered by inadequate capacity to provide these services.
This problem-solution matrix is beautifully captured in the United Nations Development Programme case study on Tedcor, which sums up, from an academic perspective, what Tedcor does. Here is a short excerpt from the executive summary:
“Although South Africa has made significant progress over the past 15 years in redressing the political, social and economic inequalities that existed under apartheid, a number of serious developmental challenges still face the country. As one of the three layers of government, the local government municipalities play a critical role in delivering on the mandate of the government. A recognised lack of capacity in municipalities, however, has hampered service delivery, including the provision of waste removal services that are important contributors to the community’s health and environmental well-being.”
“The Tedcor business model is based on being an intermediary between local residents who want to create their own enterprises, municipalities who want to award large-scale waste management tenders to local contractors, banks who want to fund large-scale vehicle purchases for emerging black-owned enterprises, and commercial truck manufacturers who want to sell a large number of trucks to black-owned enterprises. By providing ongoing financial and business support, and certified training, to community contractors that are owner-drivers of fully-funded waste removal vehicles, Tedcor has been able to successfully compete for multi-year municipal waste management contracts.”
We really couldn’t have said it better!
