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.
Grants of up to $10,000 are available to support councils to deliver the Scrap Together Campaign across their community.
These grants have now closed.
