Wise on Waste Food Business Project
NSW businesses send more than 400,000 tonnes of food to landfill each year. In response to this Cessnock City Council is undertaking a project directed at food businesses in the local area. The key messages of the Wise on Waste (WoW) project are to reduce food waste and increase the rate of recycling.
30 local food businesses participated in this exciting and much needed project.
Throughout the WoW project participating businesses learned about:
- Saving money by using more food ingredients and helping them to stay fresher for longer.
- Reducing their waste service and waste bills.
- Reducing their environmental impact by sending less waste to landfill thus reducing greenhouses gas production.
Local businesses can receive an information kit on how to reduce waste in their business by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
