A zero waste society is one where goods and materials are continually cycled to support sustainable growth and waste is progressively designed out.
Businesses have a legal duty to manage and dispose of commercial waste responsibly. Food businesses producing over 5kg of waste per week, must take all reasonable steps to ensure food waste is separately collected. (Some rural properties may be exempt from this requirement).
