Kerbside FOGO look up service

FOGO stands for Food Organics and Garden Organics. That’s our food scraps and green waste from the garden. In Port Phillip, FOGO makes up 46 percent of the content in our kerbside bins.

As outlined in our Draft Don’t Waste It! Waste Management Strategy (2022-25) we are proposing to roll out a new hybrid waste model for Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) in 2023. In the proposed model some residents who have gardens and space for additional bins would be allocated a kerbside (FOGO) bin and others who don’t have the space or generate much garden material, would instead have access to a communal service, enabling them to drop off FOGO materials at communal recycling collection points in local parks and reserves and other central community locations.

We are currently planning to roll out 120L kerbside FOGO bins to residents of houses and townhouses with gardens and space to accommodate an additional bin in early 2023. To identify the houses and townhouses that will receive a kerbside FOGO bin we have undertaken some preliminary analysis, looking out the outdoor space of the properties across the city.

This function offers residents of houses and townhouses the opportunity to look up and see whether their property has been allocated a kerbside FOGO bin.

We are also seeking early feedback on whether residents are happy with the allocation. The information collected will be used to guide the kerbside FOGO roll-out and residents will receive formal communication with the opportunity to formally opt in or out of the service later this year.

Note - We will work to identify eligible units and apartments to receive a Kerbside FOGO service later this year.
