FOGO Collection Service

All food waste can go into the green bin along with garden organics, lawn clippings and leaves. 

Organics are then reprocessed into compost mulch at Shellharbour's own FOGO processing facility. 

Need a FOGO caddy?

FOGO caddies are available for collection at the Shellharbour Civic Centre or the Dunmore Recycling & Waste Disposal Depot.

Remember to bring your proof of residency (this can include a licence or a bill). 


Irregular Collection Service

Did you know Shellharbour City Council offers an on-call Irregular Collection Service (fees apply)?

This may assist during periods when waste exceeds your usual weekly amount, e.g. summer season.

The collection fee must be paid in advance by credit card over the phone or in person at Customer Services located in the Shellharbour Civic Centre. Irregular collections occur on Monday - Friday and require 24 hours notice.
