Brighton embraces FOGO

by Brighton Council

The Brighton community has embraced the FOGO (Food Organics, Garden Organics) service, which is making a real difference to the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

Since the service was intro­duced almost 12 months ago, the community has already achieved our one year goal of 1000 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill.

The community continues to kick goals with very little to no contamination in the waste (less than 3% which is outstanding), and only 7% of eligible households have opted out of the service. In recogni­tion of this success, the team behind the FOGO service and the Waste Wise education program were awarded the Environmental Leadership and Sustainability Award by Local Government Profession­als Australia – Tasmania.

This award will be presented to Brighton Council at the Lo­cal Government Professionals conference on 13 October.

Thank you for the part you’ve already played in making the FOGO service such a success!
