Organic materials make up about half of what Queenslanders throw out each week. That adds up–it’s estimated that Australian households spend between $2,000–$2,500 per year on food that is wasted.

By taking the four-week Love Food Hate Waste Challenge you can put an end to food waste in your home, save money and reduce greenhouse gases.

The challenge will start on Monday 27 March 2023 and will run until Monday 24 April 2023.

You can register at any time throughout the four week challenge.

Participants will receive:

  • weekly tips, tricks, challenges and links to resources for you to use at home and share with family, friends and colleagues
  • end of challenge survey to see how well Cassowary Coast community members have done.
  • a chance to win an indoor composter or outdoor composting bin.

Throughout the challenge, we’ll be asking you to share your best food waste reduction tips, hacks and recipes on our Cassowary Coast Regional Council Facebook Page.
