Reducing food waste in apartment buildings

Households generate 30% of Australia’s food waste – this is the highest of any other sector. When this organic waste breaks down in landfill it creates methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Diverting food and organic waste from landfill is essential to tackling climate change. Managing the organic waste we produce is important, but we need to reduce waste, too: the average Victorian household throws away over $2000 in edible food every year, wasting money as well as resources.
