Waste charges

Waste charges for homes

Waste services charges for 2021-2022 have been updated, now that the council budget is formally approved. Charges will be applied along with Rates effective 1st July 2021.

The waste service charge on your rates notice includes:

  • weekly garbage collection
  • fortnightly recycling collection
  • bundled branches and hard waste collection
  • the cost of rubbish bins in parks and streets

Green waste collection is an optional service available in urban areas, townships and the Dandenong Ranges. Green waste collection will be charged separately on your rates notice.

The table below outlines the 2020-2021 waste charges for all residential properties under 4 hectares.

There has been a significant increase in the Landfill Levy charged by the State Governments Environmental Protection Authority (EPA). An increase of $40 (from $65.90 per tonne to $105.90 per tonne). This increase is not within Council’s control and is separate to the general rates cap, and therefore has resulted in an increase to Council’s Waste Management Charge.
The Garden Organics service has increased as a result of securing a regional contract and security for the long term processing of our organic material.
