We have prepared guidelines to assist developers and designers in preparing Waste Management Plans for residential developments.

The multi-unit development guidelines aim to:

  • provide developers with general information regarding waste collection for residential developments
  • highlight the essential issues related to waste management that need to be considered when designing a residential development
  • specify the unique requirements for particular types of development
  • detail the minimum requirements in provision of waste management services which are functional, safe and sustainable.

The guidelines apply to residential developments and include the provision of services to:

  • subdivisions
  • single and/or double storey dwellings, either attached or no
  • low rise residential developments of two to three storeys
  • high rise residential developments of between four to seven storeys
  • high rise residential developments with greater than seven storeys.
