FOGO is coming soon !!!

FOGO we got a better bin sorted

A new three bin Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) system will be rolled out in July 2020 to Town of Bassendean residents. Introducing FOGO will mean that food scraps, organic garden waste and other organic waste like animal droppings and bones will get collected weekly in a separate lime green lidded bin.  The contents of the new bin will be used to create a quality compost product. 

When organic waste goes to landfill it generates methane, a potent greenhouse gas. The compost produced from the third bin can be used to improve crop yield and replenish WA’s soil.  The new three bin system will enable the Town to meet important waste reduction targets set by the WA Government for a 75% diversion of waste from landfill.
