Food court food waste – new system, big reductions

This Fifth Estate story –  JLL cracks the shopping centre waste conundrum, starting in Sydney’s inner west –  is interesting in multiple ways:

  • The centre is owned by Local Government Super as part of its carbon neutral shopping portfolio  (super investing in the future)
  • 20% waste reductions in the first month
  • pulping facilities that divert waste from landfill to create biofuel and compost (value reclaimed; systems-level design)
  • pay by weight for what’s not pulped, controlled through key-card locked bins (motivation and process design)
