Oldham Council is on a mission to help you make the most of your food and reduce waste

In Oldham, 30% or 10,000 tonnes of all the waste in our general rubbish (grey bins) is food.

Food waste which could have been easily avoided. Not only does this cost the Council over £3m to dispose of each year but the environmental costs of growing, producing, manufacturing and transporting this food are staggering.

Click on the images below and discover how to better manage food in your household. Hopefully, the tips and information will help save you money and the environment in future.
