Maroondah Food and Garden Organics (FOGO) Champions program


We are excited to be introducing a new food and garden organics (FOGO) waste service to Maroondah in May 2023.  Kitchen caddy liners 2.png

The FOGO service will allow food waste to be added to your garden waste bin. Food waste that’s diverted from landfill will be turned into nutrient rich compost that will improve the soil on Victorian farms and gardens.

We are looking for Maroondah residents who are passionate about sustainability to become FOGO Champions. 

If you are passionate about sustainability and engaging your community, you could be just what we are looking for!

Find out how to become a FOGO Champion below. 

FOGO Champions will help inform, support and educate the Maroondah community.

As a FOGO Champion you will:

  • ensure your local community and networks are kept informed and are ready to go FOGO from 1 May 2023
  • provide Council with feedback on education approaches and messages
  • connect with like-minded residents, meet new people, build new friendships and expand your network
  • build community engagement and leadership skills
  • receive training from waste education specialists
