What is it for?

Welcome to WasteWatch.

WasteWatch is dedicated to uncovering the ways governments are wasting your tax dollars.

The public regularly hears about the cost of big government policies but thousands of smaller costs go unnoticed. Silly government grants and tenders, poorly planned infrastructure and burdensome regulation are some of the worst offenders.

WasteWatch will cast a cynical eye over government spending and bring you the standout examples of government spending splurges. You will laugh at the ridiculous ways governments spend money but will cry when you realise it’s your money that is being spent.

Eliminating government waste is one of many ways to reach TARGET30 and reduce the burden on future generations.
