The Gladstone Region community will have an opportunity to share their waste management practices and preferences, in this way guiding the development of alternatives to operationalise Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) collection and Council’s waste management processes, such as how food and organic wastes could be collected.

Community members will be able to participate by completing the short survey on the HAVE YOUR SAY tab below, attending our pop-ups and asking questions about recycling, FOGO and waste management in general. This will guide the consultant review of waste management and resource recovery opportunities for the Gladstone Region.

Further feedback will be sought from the community focusing on investigating community support for proposed alternatives to FOGO and recycling in the region.


Understanding Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO)

FOGO means all of your food waste can go into your green lid bin, along with garden organics, lawn clippings and leaves. Your organics will then be reprocessed into compost and mulch.

“Having a FOGO bin would be useful, especially since we have large trees around our property that drop leaves several times a year. ”

“Can we please have a green waste bin added to our general and recycling bins. The rates we pay are more than enough to cover this service!”

“People have forgotten how to compost, recycle and grow food. Maybe a community garden where this can help people better educate themselves.”
