FOGO* for Waverley
Food organics account for around 60% of Waverley’s red bin waste. It all currently goes to landfill. A Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) weekly collection will reduce greenhouse emissions, create more compost and cut landfill.
The recent NSW State Government Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy 2041 has a target of halving food waste to landfill and achieve net-zero emissions from organics to landfill. The NSW government Waste Strategy initiative will make available $65 million from 2023 over 5 years to help councils transition to FOGO. Costs for renegotiating existing contracts are included.

Dear Mayor & Councillors,
We want to reduce our waste to landfill, reduce greenhouse gases and create more compost. We call on you to introduce a Food Organic Garden Organic (FOGO) waste service to Waverley in your next term on Council.
Yours for a sustainable Waverley
“If elected to Waverley Council I will work to introduce a Food Waste Organic Waste collection”
– Ludovico Fabiano, candidate for Waverley ward
