FOGO Trial what's happening next?

07 July, 2020
CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Throughout the FOGO trial, we’ve welcomed your feedback and worked to improve our education and processes to help customers. We’ll be using what we’ve learnt through this trial in planning waste collection services into the future.

We have made some changes during this trial for the benefit of our customers. Here are some of the changes we have made based on your feedback:

  • The FOGO collection trial will continue within the existing areas until further notice.

  • We encourage you to continue using the compostable bags provided. They are also available from all leading hardware outlets and various supermarkets. You just need to make sure they’re compliant with Australian Standard AS4736 (refer to stamp on your kitchen caddy). Alternatively, you can use wastepaper to wrap your scraps.

  • We will continue with waste education and information shared via pop-up kiosks in shopping centres, libraries, schools, community centres. We’ll also continue to highlight FOGO through print and online media.

  • We have launched an updated survey (attached) to capture what residents think at this point in the trial. You can also complete this survey online https://www.research.net/r/WCCFOGO

I understand there’s more work to do and thank you for your support and enthusiasm for this trial.
