WHAT THE FOGO?

A better bin system is coming to Vincent

From late October 2021, we will start moving to a three-bin service, which will include a new FOGO bin.

FOGO stands for Food Organics Garden Organics.

What does this mean?

The GREEN LID FOGO BIN is for food and organic waste such as fruit, vegetables, fish, garden trimmings and animal waste.

Green lid bin will be collected weekly.

The YELLOW LID RECYCLING BIN is for recyclables like plastic bottles, paper, steel cans and glass.

Yellow lid bin will be collected fortnightly.

The RED LID GENERAL WASTE BIN is for general rubbish that cannot be composted or recycled, such as nappies and plastic bags.

Red lid bin will change from a weekly to fortnightly collection. 

Why FOGO?

At the moment, up to half the contents in our dark green waste bin is organic material.

Under a FOGO system, we can turn this organic material into high-quality compost.

This will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make a positive and lasting impact on our environment.

A FOGO bin system will be a great leap forward in our City’s target of zero waste to landfill by 2028.

Under the State Government’s recently revised Waste Strategy 2030, all Councils will need to move to a three bin FOGO system by 2025.
