Waste management plan content

For Demolition and Construction waste management plans we address Waste Minimisation Policies and Development Control Plan requirements covering:

  • Required legislation and references
  • Managing surrounding amenity and offsite issues
  • Identification of recyclable building elements / materials
  • Identify where these are recyclable and the parameters of successful recycling of elements / materials
  • Simple demolition and construction methods to maximise recycling
  • Calculation of waste volumes
  • Discussion of waste registers
  • Plans identifying location on site for recycling and landfill enclosures/bins

We complete Demolition and Construction waste management plans for:

  • demolition and construction of multi-storey towers within CBDs
  • demolition of old warehouses and construction of multi-storey residential developments
  • demolition of older commercial buildings and construction of larger similar developments
  • demolition of single or multiple dwellings or smaller non-residential sites for new residential or non-residential developments.

We produce reports that meet council requirements while also considering construction industry work methods.


Demolition and construction waste management plans generally required by councils address the collection and disposal of waste generated during the demolition and construction of multi-unit residential, retail, restaurant, commercial, mixed use, industrial, shopping centre or any larger sites.

Considering your waste management strategy prior to demolition or construction can:

  • Save money
  • Help ensure best practice recycling and waste minimisation outcomes
  • Satisfy council planning process requirements.

A good waste management plan or process will also improve the recycling behaviour of all parties involved by making recycling easy.

This is simple environmentalism.
