FOGO is Coming to Central Coast
Council gives a huge thank you to the very talented drama students at Ulverstone Secondary Collage School for helping spread the good news about FOGO.
FOGO will dramatically reduce the amount of waste we produce going into landfill and the students from Leighland Christian School say, that will have significant environmental benefits. Thank you to everyone involved with making the film!
Are you ready to Go-Go with FOGO?
In late October, everyone receiving kerbside waste collection will be able to do their bit to improve the environment by separating their food and garden waste from their general waste. Jenna Squire from Turners Beach is among those ready, willing and able to Go-Go with FOGO. A big thank you to Jenna for helping us make this film!
Go FOGO with Costa!
Australia’s favourite TV gardener, Costa Georgiadis, has endorsed Council’s FOGO initiative as a logical next step in preserving our area’s unique environment.
