The War on Waste

5 May 2017

On Tuesday, 18 April 2017 the City of Melville Council unanimously resolved to support and fund a trial of a three-Bin Food Organics Garden Organics or FOGO system.

The project is a collaboration between the Southern Metropolitan Regional Council and its member councils including the City of Melville, City of Fremantle and the Town of East Fremantle. It forms part of the Regional Strategic Waste Management Plan and aims to produce a high quality clean compost, send less waste to landfill and reduce costs.

On the topic of waste and actions on reducing waste, ABC iView will be running the 3-part series War on Waste, that looks into what we throw away as a nation, and if we are able to reduce how much waste we produce.

The series will screen from Tuesday 16 May on ABC iView and you can find out more about the steps we can take to reduce waste here :
