Free FOGO trial results are inMore than 1,000 Ipswich households participated in council’s food waste collection trial, which led to 82 tonnes of waste being diverted away from landfill. In a Queensland first, residents in Bellbird Park and Raceview participated in the FOGO (food organics, garden organics) collection trial for a year. Growth, Infrastructure and Waste Committee Chair Ipswich Mayor Teresa Harding said the trial tested the frequency and configuration of a FOGO service as well as how the community would adapt to changes in waste collection. “We know Ipswich residents want to improve environmental outcomes and what we saw over the course of the year was how small changes can have a big impact,” Mayor Harding said.
