Food recycling for apartments

All houses and apartments now have access to food recycling through the green lid bin. 

If your apartment building has access to a green lid bin, order a benchtop bin so you are 'Go for FOGO'!

The contents of your burgundy and green lid bins will be recycled into compost, mulch and fertiliser for farmers. 

What is FOGO and how does it impact my building?

FOGO is a new combined Food Organics, Garden Organics (FOGO) food recycling service that means your green lid garden waste bin also accepts food waste and turns it into compost for farmers.

Apartments with a green lid and burgundy lid bin can use both to recycle their food scraps. Garbage and FOGO bins are still collected weekly for apartments. 

From January 2024, all burgundy lid bins will be swapped over to a combined green lid FOGO bin. 

If my apartment doesn't have a green lid bin, can we still FOGO?

You will need a green lid bin to use the FOGO food recycling service.

If your building doesn't currently have one, you can order a 120L or 240L wheelie bin at no additional cost.
