About Us

How much food does the average household throw out each year? Do plastic bags really get recycled? How much food is being wasted before it gets to the supermarket shelves? A war on waste has begun to find the truth behind the way our nation manages waste, and what we can do about it. Join Craig Reucassel (The Chaser) and Wendy Harmer (ABC Sydney Mornings), as they explore the big issues in waste management, talk to those behind change, and learn how every little bit can make a difference.

Latest Episodes

Bonus: The War on Waste live debate

The first series got us thinking about recycling and where our rubbish ends up, but has the #WarOnWaste helped Australians reduce, recycle and reuse? Or, is it a load of rubbish? Those are the questions Craig Reucassel put to a group of ABC Radio Melbourne presenters in the first War on Waste live debate. Team Affirmative; Richelle Hunt, Hilary Harper and Anthony "Lehmo" Lehman, go head to head with Team Negative; Jon Faine, Jacinta Parsons and Sami Shah.

How to buy nothing new

The best way to prevent something going to landfill is to never buy it in the first place, but in a world of short-lived electronics and two-for-one deals it can be hard to resist!
