Better Bins Plus: Go FOGO

The $20 million Better Bins Plus: Go FOGO program is an initiative of the Government of Western Australia, delivered by the Waste Authority.

The program supports local governments to provide better practice three‑bin kerbside collection systems, including a dedicated bin for food organics and garden organics (FOGO).  

Rollout plan

The Waste Authority, supported by the FOGO Reference Group, develops annual plans to support the rollout of FOGO kerbside collection systems in the Perth and Peel regions.

The FOGO rollout plan 2023‒24 outlines five key focus areas:

  • Market development
  • FOGO processing
  • Local government services
  • Engagement and education
  • Foundation actions


FOGO Reference Group

The FOGO Reference Group supports the Waste Authority with the planning and rollout of FOGO kerbside collection services. It includes members from State Government, local government, regional councils, the organics industry and the waste sector.

Online information sessions

These support sessions are run jointly by the Waste Authority, Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and the FOGO Reference Group. Details of our past and upcoming sessions can be found on our Let’s go FOGO page.
