The Victorian Government is changing the household waste collection process to improve recycling end-products. All Victorian Council's and Alpine Management Boards will move to a four stream collection system over the next several years.
To accommodate this, you will need four recycling bins in the near future:
• Stream 1: Bin for kerbside collection of waste
• Stream 2: Bin for co-mingled recycling
• Stream 3: Bin for FOGO (food organics + garden organics), and
• Stream 4: Bin for Glass You can also drop glass off at certain collection points around the Shire.
Glass service must begin by 2027, while the FOGO deadline is set for 2030.
Glenelg Shire Implementation
Glenelg Shire Council is currently assessing when and how best introduce these new services. The response to the COVID-19 delayed the initial FOGO roll out, planned for 2020. This implementation will be developed into Council's service contract renewal that is due to expire in February 2023.
