Model Waste Not DCP Chapter
A Waste Not Development Control Plan (DCP) provides a mechanism for local councils at the development application phase to consider waste minimisation and resource recovery. This includes consideration of demolition and construction waste and the provision of facilities and services to allow the ongoing separation, storage and removal of waste and recyclables.
A key component of a Waste Not DCP includes the requirement of developers to submit a plan showing estimates of waste generation during demolition, construction and ongoing use of the site, as well as details on how these wastes will be sorted, stored and removed for recycling and/or disposal.
The 'Waste Not ... A Model Development Control Plan and Local Approvals Policy' was first developed by the Combined Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils in 1996. Many councils, especially those in metropolitan Sydney, have used this as a basis when preparing locally relevant development control plans and policies.
The Model Waste Not DCP Chapter 2008 draws on this local government experience and incorporates current best practices while illustrating two ways of incorporating waste management within a consolidated DCP.
