Fogo is not just about choosing the right bin, it’s about changing the way we think about waste…
We love living in the Bega Valley’s beautiful, pristine environment on the Far South Coast of NSW. And tourists from all corners of the world love it too! That is one of the reasons we are introducing FOGO - a new, innovative way to manage food waste to reduce the environmental impact of sending it to landfill.
More than a third of NSW Councils and a quarter of Victorian Councils have introduced FOGO into their communities and ABC’s popular television series War on Waste has featured FOGO, so a lot of people will be familiar with separating food waste this way. However, there will still be some who aren’t familiar with FOGO and won’t realise this service is available here in the Bega Valley.
Given the number of visitors to our region every year, we are keen to work with holiday accommodation managers to make sure tourists know WE GO FOGO.
Contamination of green bins is one of the biggest risks to making FOGO work. During peak tourism periods the risk of contamination is much higher and it’s important we do everything we can to help our visitors choose the right bin.
Below is a list of resources you can download and email as part of your booking process or order to include in rooms, compendiums or central bin areas.
FOGO saves on landfill, saves money and gives us all the opportunity to be smarter with waste!
