Coming to Boroondara in mid-2020, a new food and garden waste collection

FOGO is coming to Boroondara mid-2020!

Did you know that Boroondara waste bins contain 46 per cent food and organic waste? This is sent to landfill, which creates harmful greenhouse gases. From mid-2020, a new weekly Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) recycling service will enable residents to put garden waste and all food waste in the same bin.

Please continue to use your fortnightly garden waste collection as usual, for now. Please do not put any food waste in your green waste bin until further advised. Stay tuned for further updates.
