Waste and recycling

Managing waste in multi-unit dwellings

Waste management is a critical factor for multi-unit dwellings (MUD). As well as improving residents’ amenity, well-designed and well-managed waste systems can influence community attitudes and behaviour, improve property values, simplify waste collection and increase recycling rates.

Better Practice Guide for Waste Management in Multi-unit Dwellings (PDF 2.7MB) has been developed to help council staff, architects, property developers and building managers incorporate better practice in the design, establishment, operation and ongoing management of waste services for medium- or high-density residential, mixed use and integrated housing developments.
