Can FOGO work in MUDs?

Following up on Virginia Brunton’s well received “Where to with food waste” article, Mike Ritchie discusses FOGO in MUDs.

Mike argues that collecting FOGO from MUDs is not just feasible, it is necessary. Getting food and garden waste out of all households will:
– reduce #waste to #landfill by 50% or more
– save up to 2.7% of Australia’s GHG emissions and
– produce millions of tonnes of soil enhancing compost.

Where to with food waste

If global food waste was a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world, behind the U.S. and China

One thing we can do to combat climate change as individuals, households, local councils, state governments and federal governments is address food waste to landfill.

So, what are our options?

Driving a circular economy

A circular economy is necessary to minimise landfill, increase resources recovery and protect our natural environment. A strong local reprocessing sector will also generate new jobs, support the economy and safeguard Australia from international developments such as China’s National Sword. Mike Ritchie outlines the key drivers for a strong Circular Economy in Australia.
