Event description

Description

Join us for a screening of ‘Just eat it: a food waste story’ to mark the launch of Darebin’s food waste recycling service.

Around 38% of the household waste bin in Darebin is food. From 7 October, Darebin residents will be able to add food waste to their existing green waste bin, along with garden waste. This includes fruit and vegetable scraps, meat and bones, bread, cheese and even those uneaten leftovers.

Recycling food waste is a great way to ensure we are putting our food waste to good use and reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill. But do we know how much waste is created even before the food gets to our homes?

Just Eat It is a delicious documentary film about food waste and food rescue. It follows couple Jen and Grant as they dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail and all the way back to their fridge.

This event is FREE but bookings are essential. Light refreshments will be provided. For more information about the event, contact environment.support@darebin.vic.gov.au
