Sign the petition to call on Wollongong City Council to process food waste in the Green Bin

Most residential houses in Wollongong already have green waste bins for lawn clippings, small branches, weeds and other garden waste which is turned into compost. The is a missed opportunity to collect food waste.

Food waste is currently the largest component in Wollongong household landfill bins. Food waste rotting in landfill is also the greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions from Wollongong City Council's operations. 32 Councils around NSW have already implemented FOGO (Food Organics Garden Organics) bin services. We want Wollongong City Council to do the same.

Benefits:  - Reduce waste sent to landfill 
                - Create more compost
                                   - Cut greenhouse gas emissions 

I call on Wollongong City Council to upgrade the green bin service to include both food waste and garden waste.
