Waste and Recycling

Waste Collection Days

Greater Dandenong’ waste collection schedule is broken into two sections – zone one and zone two. These zones are used to work out what weeks your recycling and garden waste are collected.

Zone one and zone two are broken into five sub-sections – one section for each week day. Your waste collection day depends on which section you are in.

Recycling and garden waste bins are collected every fortnight, on a rotating basis and each zone has their recycling and garden waste collections on opposite weeks.

For example:

  • On the first week, zone one’s recycling is being collected, while zone two’s garden waste is being collected
  • On the next week, zone two’s recycling is collected, while zone one’s garden waste is collected

Garbage bins are collected every week, on your allocated day, no matter what your zone is.
