Scrap Together

Find out about Scrap Together, a community education program helping councils make the most of FOGO.

The EPA established the FOGO Deep Dive Education program to help councils using FOGO to make the most of the service by recovering all the available food. It pulled together educators from councils across NSW to identify the best ways to engage communities.

The result was Scrap Together, a community education campaign that was piloted in three council areas. Scrap Together increased the amount of food waste in the green lid bin by an average of 10 per cent and reduced contamination and food waste generation.

Grant funding

Grants of up to $15,000 were available to support councils to deliver the Scrap Together Campaign across their community.

The grants are now closed.
