FOGO is coming to Lockhart Shire

Get ready for FOGO in 2020! On April 1, FREE ‘Food Organics Garden Organics’ FOGO bins will be added to existing waste collection services. We will provide your household with a new bin, a kitchen caddy and liners to help you divert food and garden waste from landfill.The following table outlines examples of do’s and don’t’s for each bin.

Did you know: residents and businesses in Lockhart Shire dump an estimated 125 tonnes of organic waste into landfill?

Rotting organic matter creates unwanted green-house gasses and negatively impacts our environment. We can turn this around by composting this material. We will store valuable soil carbon, generate useful compost to be used in landscaping/garden projects across our Shire and extend our landfill capacity.
