Reducing Food Waste

The average household throws out 79 kilos of food a year, in Masterton alone that’s 751 tonnes…equivalent to one and a half A380 jumbo jets! This adds up to a staggering $872 million for the whole country and Masterton contributes approximately $5.3 million towards this.

Masterton District Council is proud to be part of the national Love Food Hate Waste NZ campaign which aims to turn this around by inspiring and enabling people to waste less food.

For practical tips on how to reduce your own food waste and save money visit

The transfer station only takes household and commercial general waste. Please check with the site operator about other waste. All recycling is FREE but you must take it to the recycling centre.
