Organics (Food & Garden Waste) Collection Service

In July 2020 Council will be introducing a compulsory food and garden waste (FOGO) kerbside service for all Southern Grampians Shire residents currently receiving the compulsory waste and recycling service.

Until then the service is elective and available only in the Hamilton and Tarrington areas. The FOGO bin is for food waste and garden waste and is collected fortnightly, on the same day as the garbage. (Refer to the waste calendar for your zone).

The organic waste is transported to Camperdown, where it is composted and used as a fertiliser and soil improver on farms.

For information on what materials are accepted in the organics bin please see the "FOGO - In the Know" guide below.

Please keep in mind that only materials that can be composted should be placed in your organic waste bin. If we find contamination is an ongoing issue at your residence, we will discontinue your organics service. For a list of permitted organic items, visit our waste collection page or the link below. It is most important to avoid putting any types of plastic in the organics bin.

You are also responsible for keeping your organics bin in working condition. Lost or damaged bins (unless done so by the contractor) will need to be replaced. Please contact Customer Service for costs and further information.

To participate in the FOGO waste service, simply complete the application form below and deliver it to Customer Service.
