Oldham residents! Let's talk about food waste

Closes 7 Mar 2021

Opened 4 Feb 2021


Did you know that every year in Oldham, 9,641 tonnes of food is thrown away that could have been avoided? This costs Oldham tax payers £2.8 million pounds a year in disposal costs.

Reducing food waste not only saves you money but is better for the environment, when you think about the journey food goes on before it gets to your plate.

Please can you complete this survey so that Oldham Council and Recycle for Greater Manchester can understand how to best approach this issue.

We want to find out if you recycle your food waste, why you throw away some food, and learn about what would help you to reduce the amount of food you throw away.

Your responses will directly shape our partnership work in future.
