Over the next two weeks, the Shire of Harvey is delivering the Organics (FOGO) bin to all households with an existing waste service.
Each household will receive:
- 240-litre lime green coloured bin;
- A 7-litre plastic kitchen caddy with a lid, to assist you in collecting organic waste in your kitchen;
- 4 rolls of compostable bags will be supplied to line your kitchen caddy;
- An information booklet and calendar on how to use your bins.
The first FOGO bin collection will be from the week beginning August 12.
After this date, your general waste bin will be collected fortnightly instead of weekly, on your normal collection day. Your recycling bin will continue to be collected fortnightly, on the alternate week to your general waste bin.
This means that there will only be two bins put out for collection each week.
The collection schedule is as follows:
Week beginning 05 August 2019: General Waste Bin and Recycling Bin
Week beginning 12 August 2019: Organics (FOGO) Bin and General Waste Bin
Week beginning 19 August 2019: Organics (FOGO) Bin and Recycling Bin
Week beginning 26 August 2019: Organics Bin (FOGO) and General Waste Bin
