Love Food Hate Waste

Love Food Hate Waste is a program managed by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) which aims to raise awareness about the impact of food waste in NSW and reduce how much 'good' food we waste. 

The Love Food Hate Waste program partners with government, corporate and not-for-profit organisations committed to reducing food waste in NSW.

Tamworth Regional Council became a registered partner to the Love Food Hate Waste Program in 2016 and encourages residents and businesses to visit the Love Food Hate Waste site for strategies, resources, tools and tips on reducing their food waste being sent to landfill. 

Simple actions can make a big difference!
