For food waste that cannot be prevented or reduced, it is better to donate or recycle it (than to send to landfill).
What you can do with it depends on your business type, location, size and other factors.
Food rescue agencies that take food donated by businesses can feed thousands of families every year.
How: Search online to find options near you or check with your council.
Food waste collection
Sending food waste to be composted off-site will help reduce food waste going to landfill.
On-site composting or worm farms
Scraps or food that is no longer suitable for eating can be composted to create nutrient-rich compost for your gardens or plants.
How: Before setting up a compost bin or worm farm, check with your council to ensure you have followed environmental guidelines.
On-site processing technology
There is a range of technologies (for example, on-site digesters, dehydrators) that can turn food waste into secondary products such as energy or fertilizer.
