Food Waste Challenge

The average NSW household wastes $1036 worth of food each year, totalling to $2.5 billion. NSW households throw away more than 800,000 tonnes of food each year, and 38% of the average kerbside bin is food waste. 

By wasting food you are wasting the water, energy and natural resources used in its production and are contributing to landfill methane gas emissions- a potent greenhouse gas. And the worst part? Most of this food waste can be avoided.

This is where the Food Waste Challenge steps in.

The Food Waste Challenge is an exciting, innovative and unique education program, developed by the Nature Conservation Council of NSW in partnership with the Office of Environment and Heritage through the Love Food Hate Waste program, which provides you with the skills to reduce your household's food waste- saving your wallet and helping the environment!

There are many councils and regions taking the Food Waste Challenge right now- have a look at the list below.

If there is a Challenge is your area, don't delay register today! Or if there isn't, have a read about the Food Waste Challenge program, consider approaching your Council and give us a call.
