A family friend said the Wodonga Primary School student was slowly improving but remained in an induced coma.
Police continue to investigate the matter, and believe the truck driver did not realise he had hit Zayne.
A company spokesman said the business was cooperating with investigators.
"Cleanaway is aware of an incident involving one of our trucks (on Monday) afternoon in Wodonga," the spokesman said.
"The incident is under assessment by the Victorian Police.
"Cleanaway will fully cooperate with the police."
Zayne's family drove to Melbourne on Tuesday, with the trip delayed by their car being in a smash repair business.
A Wodonga woman started a fundraiser on Tuesday to raise money for a new vehicle, which she said would help the family travel between Wodonga and the hospital.
While a small number of donations between $10 and $50 were made, one unknown donor contributed $5000.
