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 Don’t Waste It! Waste Management Strategy (2022-25) we have proposed rolling out a new hybrid waste model for our Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) service in 2023. In the proposed model, properties with space to house an additional bin will be allocated a kerbside FOGO bin. Properties with limited space will instead have access to communal FOGO hubs, enabling them to drop off FOGO materials at communal FOGO collection points in local parks, reserves and other central community locations.

We are currently planning to roll out 120L kerbside FOGO bins to residents in 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 analysis offers residents in houses and townhouses the opportunity to look up and see if property has been allocated a kerbside FOGO bin.

We are also seeking early feedback on whether residents who are initially not allocated the FOGO bin are interested in receiving the service. The information collected will be used to guide the kerbside FOGO roll-out. Residents will receive additional communication from Council with the opportunity to formally opt in by the end of this financial year.
