Bega Valley FOGO trial ends

A Bega Valley Shire Council program to provide free FOGO caddy bin liners to local residents has ended.

The program provided about 5.8 million compostable liners since the launch of the FOGO organics recycling project in 2018.

Council’s Waste Project Officer, Amber Gault said the program has ended because the FOGO project was now well established, and the caddy bin liners were widely available and affordable.

“The free caddy liner vouchers will no longer be issued now the program has ended,” Ms Gault said.

“For people keen to continue using compostable caddy liners, they will still be available to buy from Council’s Bega office, waste facilities and shire libraries.

“Importantly, this change does not mean the end of the FOGO project. Our organics recycling service continues to go from strength to strength, with more than 5,000 tonnes of kitchen waste being diverted away from landfill each year,” she said.
