Go FOGO and stop food scraps and garden clippings going to landfill

Ordering a food organics and garden organics bin – also known as a FOGO bin- is one simple way you can help protect the environment.

Council’s organic processor collects Brimbank’s food waste and garden clipping and converts it into nutrient rich compost for agriculture and gardens. Join about 45,000 Brimbank households who are already using this opt-in service and reducing their waste to landfill each week. They are helping fight the biggest issue facing the world today – climate change.

If every Brimbank household uses our food and garden waste service, we’ll save almost 40,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions – equivalent to having 17,582 fewer cars on the road each year.

The annual charge for this optional service is:

  • $93.79 for a 140 litre FOGO bin, or
  • $102 for a 240 litre FOGO bin.

Sign up online and receive a no-charge kitchen caddy (while stocks last).
