Waste & rubbish

Your garbage is collected weekly from the nature strip, with recyclables or garden organics collected on alternate weeks (that is, every 2 weeks). There are also additional hard waste and household chemical collections.

Your weekly garbage will still be collected on a public holiday, even Christmas Day!

You might see red lid garbage bins in Maroondah from November 2021. That’s because we’re changing our garbage bin lids from green to red over the next ten years to align them with Australian Standards and so they meet the requirements of the Victorian Government’s Recycling Victoria policy.
