A three bin kerbside collection system is coming to City of Belmont

The City of Belmont is transitioning from the two bin system to a three bin kerbside collection system. This will include the roll out of a Food Organics, Garden Organics (FOGO) bin to standard households.

The three bin kerbside collection system will include:

  • A Lime Green Lid FOGO Bin for food and organic waste such as fruit, vegetables, meat and garden trimmings. FOGO will be collected weekly.
  • A Yellow Lid Recycling Bin for recyclables like plastic bottles, paper, steel cans and glass. Recycling will be collected fortnightly.
  • A Red Lid General Waste Bin for general rubbish that cannot be composted or recycled, such as nappies and plastic bags. General Waste will be collected fortnightly on alternating weeks with Recycling.

We look forward to sharing more information with you over the coming months. Project updates will be available on Belmont Connect, and additional resources, education materials and Frequently Asked Questions on our website.



The transition is in line with the State Government's Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy and Action Plan, which includes the implementation of a three bin FOGO kerbside collection system by all local governments (Perth and Peel regions) by 2025.

It is also supported by City of Belmont Waste Plan endorsed by Council in November 2020.

  • FOGO will enable an additional 41% of our City's household waste to be made into useable materials (recovered).

  • Over 50% of the material currently disposed of in General Waste kerbside bins is organic.

  • Introducing FOGO will help increase the City's landfill diversion rate from 19% to 97%.
