Weekly FOGO trial and survey details
On Thursday, 7 September 2023, households, and businesses in Thursday’s collection zone began a 6-month trial in which the collection frequency of the FOGO (food organics and garden organics) bin and the landfill bin was swapped.
The intent of the trial is to identify and assess a wide range of matters, including community acceptance, logistical challenges, environmental outcomes, and economic value. We anticipated that providing a weekly green FOGO service would actively encourage the community to place more food waste in their FOGO bins (where it belongs) and increase the rate at which useful organic materials are diverted from landfill. Worldwide, reducing food waste is considered the third biggest action for reversing climate change.
The following survey will assist Council in assessing the FOGO trial outcomes as they relate to individual households and businesses and give you a chance to have your say.
All responses are treated as anonymous and confidential. Any individual contact details provided will be retained solely for the purpose of the survey prize draw. Please refer to the terms and conditions of the survey competition for additional information.
