Renovators - Plan Your Waste
The building and construction industry is a major contributor of waste, much of which is still distributed to landfill. The implementation of effective waste minimization strategies has the potential to significantly reduce the volume of waste from these industries.
All application for development, including demolition, construction and the ongoing use of a site/premise, must be accompanied by a Waste Management Plan (WMP).
