FOGO - Food Organics and Garden Organics

Glenorchy City Council will be introducing a fortnightly FOGO (Food Organics and Garden Organics) kerbside collection service from February 2020.

Currently in Glenorchy, more than 50 per cent of our general waste collection (which goes to landfill) is made up of FOGO waste. This adds up to more than 4,000 tonnes of organic waste a year.

Glenorchy's FOGO collection service will divert all this organic waste from landfill and instead create healthy compost - both saving landfill space and reducing a lot of greenhouse gas emissions.

For more information about how FOGO will work and what it means for you, have a look at our FOGO FAQs (external site).
