A second kerbside bin will be a part of every Geraldton household by 2022, with the council passing an updated plan to better manage the city’s waste and the environment. The City of Greater Geraldton has approved its Strategic Waste Management and Recycling Action Plan 2020-2030 at its ordinary meeting on Tuesday, which included the plan to issue food organics and garden organics bins across the city. Several councillors commented positively on the plan, saying it was very detailed, well presented, and took the City in a favourable direction. A FOGO trial of 530 homes across the city began in March, with a recent community survey on waste and recycling indicating the service was strongly supported by residents. Green-topped bins will be used to dispose of food and garden waste, while bins with red lids will collect general rubbish. There are no plans to introduce yellow-lidded bins in the Mid West for recycling because the measure has been found unviable by local governments, including the City of Greater Geraldton.
