Working to lower food waste in central Ohio
This episode originally aired January 11, 2023.
Every day, nearly one million pounds of food ends up in the Franklin County sanitary landfill, but food waste in central Ohio is on the decline thanks in part to a campaign from the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO).
SWACO’s goal is to cut in half the amount of food headed to the landfill by 2030.
We are taking a look at the issue of food waste and what's being done about it in central Ohio.
