The red carpet was rolled out in Bega on Friday evening, October 19, for the launch of the “FOGOmentary”.
The FOGOmentary is a film produced as part of the waste reduction initiative that starts across the Bega Valley on October 29.
The documentary stars every child who turned up for filming of television ad spots soon to hit our screens as part of the community education of what FOGO is all about.

The more than 50 young stars of the FOGO initiative arrived en masse at the Bega Valley Civic Centre for the "world premiere" of the documentary, along with their proud families, council representatives, EPA reps and the face of FOGO Costa Georgiadis.
Costa was a hit with everyone from the young to not so young, joking and laughing as he helped promote the initiative that will divert all food and garden organic scraps away from landfill.
One of the newly FOGO-branded trucks was parked at the front of the civic centre making a great backdrop for the many photos and selfies taken with Costa.
The FOGOmentary premiere and TV ad campaign launch comes in the middle of kitchen caddies being delivered to people’s households.

Any home or premises that currently has a green bin service will be included in the FOGO pickup, with the green bins to be collected weekly, and red bins switch to fortnightly.
As soon as you receive your kitchen caddy you can start “FOGOing”. The first FOGO pickup by Cleanaway is on Monday, October 29.
