Communities are becoming more aware of recycling generally and Australian community consultation around the issue of green waste recycling shows high satisfaction levels in people knowing their organic wastes are being recycled.
The West Tamar Council is proud to announce that from July 1, Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) kerbside collection will begin in the Trevallyn, Riverside and Legana area. This program may spread to other areas if there is enough interest to make it viable.
The opt in service incurs a one-off cost of $65. This payment covers the cost of a 240lt bin and information material. The collection includes food and garden waste such as kitchen scraps, lawn clippings, small branches and garden debris. The fortnightly service is a convenient way for households to recycle food and garden organics with the potential to save on inconvenient trips to the tip and help by reducing landfill and greenhouse gas emissions.
More details to come as the start date approaches. Feel free to email me for any more details.
