Waste Management Planning

What is a Waste Management Plan?

A Waste Management Plan outlines how the large amounts of waste created by a business is managed and dealt with and includes estimates of waste type, volume, and management method.

A Waste Management Plan provides strategic planning for managing waste during operations of new developments and construction. The Guidelines provide the minimum Waste Management Plan requirements for all developments and for completing new facilities.
A Waste Management Plan is the scope of what is needed to achieve the goals set out for managing development & construction waste.

When would a Waste Management Plan be required?

The Waste Management Plan for each project is typically the responsibility of the main contractors/teams, and from this plan, the Waste Management specifications can be developed for packages outlining procedures for recycling, re-use or salvaging.

It can also be used to provide clients with detailed information of actual recycling, reuse and disposal of waste. In most cases, subcontractors would abide by the main contractor’s plan. Where subcontractors have sole responsibility for their waste, they usually fulfill & complete their own Waste Management Plan, as is with each separate job.

AusWide Consulting can create a Waste Management Plan for your Development Application within your Local Council for either the pre and post development stages.

Waste Management Benefits

Often a Waste Management Plan is created as a result of compliance requirements however there are many benefits of investing in a Waste Management Plan for your development.
Planning for waste management can improve waste outcomes at job sites and when you consider the lifetime tenure of the new development, a Waste Management Plan can be a significant positive achievement . Council requirements for operational Waste Management Plans require incorporated treatment for recyclable waste for new non-residential developments.

There are 3 different types of Waste Management Plans. They are:

  1. Demolition & Construction Waste Management Plan
  2. Ongoing or Post Waste Management Plan
  3. A combination of the above
