Food Waste Challenge' aims to save Havering households money and promote sustainability
RESIDENTS are to receive advice on optimum fridge-freezer temperatures and efficient bread storage to minimise food waste.
Families challenged to reduce food waste
The Havering Council challenge runs alongside London Green Points – Havering, a recycling reward scheme which has been running since 2014.
With around 40 per cent of black sack waste in Havering being made up of food waste, the idea is to reduce waste produced and teach households how they could save money.
