What can I put in my bin?

Everything you need to know about your bins and how to custom design your services to suit your needs.


Customise our service to suit your needs

Everything you need to know about your bins and how to custom design our services to suit your needs.

In 2018 Bega Valley Shire Council introduced the FOGO bin collection service, resulting in changes to the collections for households and businesses.

Here is a simple guide to the current bin collection services.

Helping you to keep your bins contamination free

If our waste collection drivers or in-truck cameras detect significant contaminants in your household bins, our first step is to let you know and to help you avoid making the same mistake twice.

If you notice a sticker has been placed on your bin, it means a contaminant has been detected. We may have found plastic in your green bin, bagged-up general waste in your yellow bin, or something prohibited like asbestos, in your red bin.

The sticker will contain a web address that directs people to important information on how to use their bins correctly and the consequences of not following this advice.

If contamination is found on three occasions within a specific timeframe, the customer will be required to remove the contamination at their own expense before their bins are emptied.

If more contamination is found within four weeks of a third offence, the yellow and green bins will be replaced with general waste bins for a minimum period of six months, and this will incur an additional fee to be paid on top of the standard bin collection fee.

At the end of the six-month period, full bin collection service and a return to normal fees will commence if the customer commits to ensuring that further bin contamination will not happen.
