City of Vincent Corporate Plans & Strategies

FOGO Rollout

At the City of Vincent 5 March 2019 Council Meeting, a business case was approved for a third food organic and garden organic (FOGO) bin collection, with a proposed date of implementation of October 2020. The business case looked at implementation, benefits, costs and the communications and consultation required before a third bin can be introduced.


Plans to switch to a three-bin system have been put on hold for a year while the City of Vincent focuses on managing the impact of COVID-19 in the community.

The City had planned to introduce a third Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) bin from October 2020.

At a special council meeting held 30 March 2020, Council voted to defer the introduction of the three-bin system until October 2021.

For more information, visit our dedicated FOGO page below. This page will be updated as the rollout progress over the next 18 months.
