A dedicated food and garden organics kerbside collection service will be launched in the Moreton Bay Region within the next three years.
Moreton Bay Regional Council is conducting a business study for an action plan to deliver the Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) recycling facility service from late 2025.
Mayor Peter Flannery says the plan is in response to demand from residents.
“From the many conversations I’ve had with residents across the region, there’s certainly growing support for a convenient, household-based green waste recycling service.
“This business case will lay a strong foundation for the new service and take it a step further – with the capture, collection and recycling of food waste to be included, instead of allowing this valuable resource to continue to make its way to landfill, where it creates greenhouse gas emissions.”
