Fortnightly green waste collection

You can have a fortnightly green waste bin collection for an annual fee. Your fortnightly green waste bin is collected on the alternate week to recycling, even on public holidays.

When an organics bin service is ordered for a property and a request for cancellation is received within the same year, the service charge will remain on the property until the end of the current financial year.

The collection is available in urban areas, townships and the Dandenong Ranges. 

Find out your collection dates.

More information about waste and recycling can be found in the waste booklet. (PDF, 1012KB)
