Waste Management Plans

A Waste Management Plan is now a council requirement for multi-unit and non residential developments in most municipalities. At Low Impact Development Consulting we will prepare a demolition, construction or operational Waste Management Plan for your multi-unit, mixed use or non-residential development, independently or in conjunction with your ESD report.

We produce over 150 Waste Management Plans per year, that are well received by councils, due to our standard practice of proposing recommendations to council Waste Management teams and obtaining comments prior to submission.

Call us to discuss or email your project details on pdf – we can generally confirm written quotes within 24 hours and turn reports around within 1 week.

More details are provided on our Waste Management Plan website.

Considering the waste management strategy early in the design development stage avoids difficult re-design issues later in a project, helps ensure best practice outcomes, and consequently will satisfy council planning process requirements. A good Waste Management Plan / process will also improve the recycling behaviour of apartment inhabitants by making recycling easy. The development will exist for multiple decades, so a small regular improved recycling performance of tennants becomes very significant over the life of a building. This is simple environmentalism.

A Waste Management Plan can encompass construction waste in addition to managing the residents waste when the building is occupied. At LID Consulting we can also prepare a simple to follow construction Waste Management Plan if required. We have 15 years experience including in multi-unit and commercial design and construction so our solutions will be tailored and practical.
