The Chaser’s Craig Reucassel joins Hit Coffs Coast for waste challenge
Hit Coffs Coast‘s Breakfast team embarked on a waste challenge to see if they could keep track of all their rubbish for a whole week.
A.B & Ben are carrying around a hessian sack each for the week for the #RubbishRivalry challenge.
Radio Chaser‘s Craig Reucassel, who also hosts ABC TV show War On Waste, joined the pair to chat about the challenge and the 2,000 kgs of waste each Australian throws away each year.

“Even when we did the show it was hard!”
