All your KI recycling questions answered at workshop


Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority education officer Joanne McPhee is coming to KI to speak about composting and recycling.

It’s 18 months since Kangaroo Island changed its method of waste collection and introduced the green organics bins.

While most people have adjusted to the new FOGO (Food Organics and Green Organics) system there’s still a bit of confusion about some tricky items.

Are bread tags too small to go in the recycle bin? Should you leave the lids on wine bottles? Can corks be recycled? Can paper go into the green bin?

To help you with these and other pressing questions, Kingscote Uniting Church is hosting an information session on Tuesday, February 19 from 2pm to 4pm.

Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority education officer Joanne McPhee will be there to answer all your ticklish recycling/waste questions, so bring along your problem item and see if you can stump the expert.

Joanne will also be promoting the new Hot Rot in-vessel composting system, expected to be installed and operational on KI in March/April 2019.  

This giant will need feeding with green and food waste to produce great compost for our gardens.

If you’re wondering if it’s really worthwhile recycling, Joanne will set your mind at rest regarding what is happening to the contents of the yellow bins.

Numbers are limited so registration is required. A light afternoon tea will be provided.

Phone FRWA: 8555 7405 or email: admin@ to find out more or to book your place.

The Uniting Church Hall is located next to the church on the corner of Murray and Franklin Street.
