EPA - Love Food Hate Waste

 EPA - ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ program 

NSW Government strategies and polices relating to waste stem from the objectives and requirements set out in the NSW waste legislation particularly the Waste and Resource Recovery Act 2001.  The NSW EPA Love Food Hate Waste partner program provides an opportunity for NSW organisations to be recognised for taking the lead in avoiding and/or reducing unnecessary food waste. “Love Food Hate Waste” grants support eligible partner organisations to deliver projects that help households and businesses reduce the amount of edible food they waste.

NSW EPA Organics Manager, Amanda Kane, will speak about the landmark ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ program. It’s part of a $100 million program the EPA is investing in getting food and garden waste out of landfill. Amanda will talk about some of the research the EPA is doing to understand more about food waste behaviours (which are very complex) and how Love Food Hate Waste is helping. She will also talk about the issue in general and options for recycling instead of landfill.

Amanda Kane manages the NSW Environment Protection Authority’s $100 million Organics Infrastructure Fund. She is a former journalist with many years’ experience in sustainability communications covering energy, water and waste. Since taking over the organics role in 2015, Amanda has been leading the delivery of a range of programs to get food and garden waste out of landfill, tackling the issue on every front. The work includes prevention through Love Food Hate Waste and grants for new kerbside collections, processing infrastructure and market development to establish strong, viable markets for the recycled product. With four more years of funding for avoidance committed under Waste Less Recycle More, including $5 million for Love Food Hate Waste, Amanda’s team has begun to delve deep into the drivers causing us to waste food to inform new ways to help us waste less.
