FOGO services (Food Organics and Garden Organics) formally known as green waste services are a combined waste receptacle that is processed as compost in a local composting facility. This compost is then utilised to improve soil quality and improve food production and farming supplies - creating a circular organic economy.

Organic waste was named in the national waste policy action plan in 2019 as Australia looks to halve the amount of organic waste sent to landfill. Redooo provides businesses and households with the opportunity to reduce their landfill contribution with our collection of Organic Waste services. The correct disposal of organic waste reduces your carbon footprint and helps Australia reach national environmental targets.

Organic waste bins are becoming more and more common across regional councils as the value of reduced waste to landfill is recognized nationally. Our Food waste collections include anything once considered edible including un-packaged fruit, vegetables, bread, grains, pasta, dairy, eggshells, coffee grinds, meat, seafood (not hard shells) and bones. Redooo encourages businesses to consider investing in Food waste receptacles or composting equipment to reduce the businesses waste to landfill and increase recycling rates.

If you would like bin liners for your FOGO bin (Food Organics bin/ Garden Organics bin), you can purchase compostable bin liners at most supermarkets, grocery stores and some hardware stores including Bunnings Warehouse. Simply, make sure whatever liner you purchase is compostable and has the Australian Standard number AS 4736 and seedling logo. Some soiled paper and cardboard can go into your Food Organics Bin. If you are unsure about what is acceptable it's best to dispose of the waste paper and cardboard in your paper / cardboard recycling bin or your commingled recycling bin
