[Edited extract from public address]

The average Victorian household throws out of $2,200 worth of food per year.

Most household waste can be avoided by better planning of meals and the right storage of food.
In an average household garbage bin, the contents are 8% green waste, 17% recyclables, 30% organic and 45% Rubbish - meaning 55% of the contents could be diverted from land fill.

Start a compost or worm farm for food scraps.

Even if living in an apartment, by implementing a few simple changes could reduce what is sent to landfill by half.
