Compostable Kitchen Caddy Bags

2022-2023 Waste and Recycling Guide

The Shire of Harvey’s 2022-2023 waste and recycling guide, along with a roll of compostable bags are being delivered to your letterbox soon. This calendar contains important information about your waste collection services, a sorting guide for your kerbside bins, a list of the drop off points within the Shire, as well as a voucher you can redeem for another two rolls of compostable bags.

Redeem Your Voucher for Additional Bags

This financial year, households will receive a voucher on their annual waste calendar, which can be exchanged for two rolls of 75 compostable bags.

As we have a finite supply of compostable bags each year, we will not be able to replace your voucher if you lose it. If you have lost your voucher, please see the Alternative Options to Using FOGO Kitchen Caddy Bags below.

Compostable Kitchen Caddy Bag Collection Points

Display your voucher at any of the following locations to redeem your compostable bags:

  • Administration Centres (Harvey and Australind).
  • Leschenault Leisure Centre (LLC).
  • Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre.

Alternative Options to Using FOGO Kitchen Caddy Bags

You do not have to use compostable bags in your FOGO kitchen caddy. There are many ways you can use your FOGO kitchen caddy to collect organics for composting:

  • Substitutes: Use newspaper or paper towels as an alternative to the compostable bags.
  • Purchase compostable liners:  You can buy compostable liners from Woolworths, Coles, FoodWorks, and Bunnings or online from Cardia Bioproducts, Compost-A-Pak and BioBag World. Only buy compostable liners that display the Certified Australian Standard logos and numbers. Biodegradable liners still contain plastic and break down into micro plastics which are harmful to all living things, pollute the environment and contaminate the FOGO compost.
  • No liner: Go without a liner and instead wash your caddy regularly.
