Food waste

Food waste

This item should be placed in your FOGO (Food Organics Garden Organics) bin

All Food waste should always be placed in your FOGO bin to be composted. This includes all fruit and vegetables, bread, dairy, eggs, meat, bones, fish and seafood.

Food scraps should be placed into a compostable liner or newspaper before being put in the FOGO bin.

You should try to minimise food waste in your home.

Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year or approximately 1.6 billion tonnes gets lost or wasted.

Food loss and waste also amount to a major misuse of resources including land, water, energy, labour and capital and needlessly produces greenhouse gas emissions, leading to global warming and climate change.
