Get ready to FOGO! We can do it!

First collections under our new 3 Bin FOGO system will occur this week.

Put out your new Green Lidded FOGO Bin + your Red Lidded General Waste Bin OR Yellow Lidded Recycling Bin. Check your Waste Calendar to confirm if you’re in a RED or a YELLOW week.

Our Waste Team has had a few questions about the new smaller 140L Red Lidded General Waste Bin. Here’s a few points to consider:

  • Give it a go! See how you go! Research and experience shows if we sort our waste correctly, 140L should be enough for most homes.
  • A smaller bin for General Waste is now considered by the Waste Authority to be best practice for 3 Bin Systems. It’s all about encouraging us to reduce the amount of waste we generate and send to landfill.
  • Explore the full range of recycling options available to make the most of your General Waste Bin capacity. Think our Community Recycling Stations for bottletops, batteries and globes, Red Cycle bins for soft plastics at most supermarkets, our new monthly E-waste collection service plus Containers for Change.

Our Waste Team is on standby to provide additional advice and resources. Phone them on 1800 260 033.
