When will my FOGO bin be collected?

Published on 05 October 2017


With your help, the City of Launceston has rolled out more than 3000 new green-lidded FOGO bins across the municipality, with bin deliveries still underway.

Now it's time for us to start collecting them each fortnight.

Kerbside FOGO bin collections will begin next week, but your first collection will depend on where you live.

FOGO bins will only ever be collected on alternate weeks to your recycling bin, so you'll only ever have two bins on the street at once.


An easy way to keep on top of your collections is to download the Recycle Coach smartphone app, which is available for both Android and iPhone.
