Waste and Recycling
Port Augusta City Council are introducing a new organic composting system which will change the way you can dispose of green waste into your green bin.
Port Augusta residents are now encouraged to use the FOGO (Food and Garden Organics) kitchen caddy system, to collect food scraps and other compostable materials before placing them into your green lidded food and garden organics bin.
You can create your own FOGO caddy (for example: use a small basket with a lid or repurpose an ice cream container) then line it with a compostable plant based bin liner.
You can purchase compostable plant based bin liners from any major supermarket chain, make sure you look for the Australian Standard compostable symbol. Note: biodegradable bags are not compostable.
