Food levy for Canberra businesses

Canberra's hospitality industry will be slapped with a new levy on food waste.

The levy, which is expected to raise almost 20 million dollars, would be charged on commercial waste companies dumping food waste in the territory's landfills.

Funds raised from the levy would be used to upgrade the Hume recycling centre, but the AHA says the levy amounts to a new 7 per cent tax on the hospitality industry.
