Waste Education

City of Greater Dandenong delivers a range of waste education programs for schools, early learning centres, kindergartens and the local community.

These programs encourage everyone in our community to think about the rubbish created in the first place and to reduce, reuse and recycle waste correctly and to learn about what happens to waste once it leaves school and home. 

Council also hosts a range of waste workshops for residents each year. Please visit council's events for upcoming waste events, or email
