City of Greater Dandenong provides a weekly household garbage collection service. This is available to all residential households within the municipality.
Council is committed to reducing the amount of rubbish being sent to landfill.
A large percentage of waste thrown in the garbage bin can be composted, recycled, or even reused.
By making less rubbish in the first place, by recycling and composting more, the better it will be for our environment now and in the future.
