The Waste Authority, supported by the FOGO Reference Group, has developed a plan to introduce food organics and garden organics (FOGO) kerbside collection systems in the Perth and Peel regions.
The plan aims to:
- facilitate market development for FOGO-derived products
- facilitate actions to match processing capacity with expected FOGO generation rates
- support key stakeholders with the planning and implementation of FOGO services
- maintain a rollout schedule of local government FOGO services, projected FOGO collection rates, processing capacity and outputs to inform planning.
The FOGO rollout plan 2021–22 contains five themes: market development, FOGO processing, local government services, engagement and education, and foundation actions.
A report on the progress made against the actions of the first FOGO rollout plan (2020–21) can be found below.
