Wise on Waste for Food Businesses

NSW businesses send more than 400,000 tonnes of food to landfill each year. Wise on Waste ( or WoW) aims to encourage food businesses to reduce food waste and increase the rate of recycling.  

Local businesses can use the resources below to reduce their food waste. Hard copy kits can be requested via environment@cessnock.nsw.gov.au .
