WHAT THE FOGO?

A better bin system has landed in Vincent

In October 2021, we began our move to a three-bin service, which includes a new FOGO bin.

FOGO stands for Food Organics Garden Organics.

What does this mean?

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

Lime 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?

Up to half the contents in our old dark green waste bins was 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.

Larger apartment complexes are gradually being transitioned to the 3-Bin FOGO system. Residents will receive notification when their property is due to change.
