City seeks community feedback to improve waste services
May 31 2024

The City is asking residents to share their ideas on how the City can improve its waste services and educational resources to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.    

Feedback gathered from the community will give insight into how residents are using the Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO) bin system and what educational resources are needed. 

Under the three-bin FOGO system, food scraps and garden organics are separated into the green-lidded bin and collected weekly, while the general waste and recycling kerbside bins are collected on alternate fortnights.

Since the rollout of the three-bin FOGO system in 2021, the City has supported the community to adapt to the changes through educational workshops and resources, which has resulted in households diverting 30,000 tonnes of FOGO materials from landfill.

The City is committed to engaging with the community to better understand their waste education needs to continue to support waste minimisation. 

To have your say and help the City continue to improve waste services, visit Engage Bayswater and fill out the survey by 5 July 2024. 

Survey participants will also go into the draw for a chance to win a $50 Enviro House voucher. 

Hard copies of the survey are available from the Civic Centre and the City’s three libraries.
