Food Organics and Garden Organics Community Feedback Report


Investigation of a Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) Kerbside Waste Collection - Community Feedback Report

As part of Glenorchy City Council’s review of its Waste Management Strategy 2013-2023, Council is currently considering the introduction of a kerbside Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) bin collection service. 

Council asked for community feedback on the proposal through a survey in November 2018. The survey received over 1,300 responses with representation from across the municipality, with 90% of respondents listing the introduction of a FOGO service as ‘important’ or ‘very important’. 

At the Council meeting of 29 January 2019 Council received a report on the survey results. The report was for information only - Council was not voting on whether to introduce a FOGO service at that meeting.

Council staff are currently preparing a business case on the introduction of a FOGO service which will include feedback received from the community contained in the survey report. Council will consider the matter further when the business case is presented, this is targeted for the 25th March 2019 Council meeting.

Further information will be available on this page and Council offices after the business case has been presented to Council.
