What is Food Organics & Garden Organics Recycling?

Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) recycling is the separation of all food scrap and organic material, inclusive of green waste from your general waste.

When food waste goes into your general waste bin it ends up in landfill, where it generates a greenhouse gas called methane - a gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide, contributing to the rise of global warming.

By simply starting to separate your food and garden organic waste from a red bin into a FOGO bin, you are actively contributing to a more circular economy. By collecting FOGO you have the ability to help us turn your waste into valuable resources such as compost, mulch, soil and fertilisers, which can be sent to various local markets, landscape supply yards, commercial landscapers, or farms. 

Why is Food & Garden Organics Recycling Important?

  • Diverts waste from landfills: FOGO recycling assists in keeping food scraps and yard waste out of landfills, where they decompose and generate harmful methane gas, a potent greenhouse gas. Hit the link to learn more about the impact of GHGs.
  • Repurpose waste into valuable resources: FOGO materials can be composted into nutrient-rich soil conditioners, promoting healthy plant growth and ultimately reducing reliance on chemical fertilizers.
  • Creates a circular economy: Composting FOGO materials embraces the principle of a circular economy, where we can divert waste from landfills and reintroduce it as a valuable resource with a second life.
