The Development Control Code for Best Practice Waste Management in the ACT

The ACT Government is implementing a strategy that aims to maximise resource recovery and minimise waste disposal. With increased building activity occurring within the ACT, sustainable waste management solutions are needed.

Waste and Recycle Management Code  for the ACT (PDF 7MB) directs professionals on how to incorporate best practice waste management principles and requirements into the design, construction and operation of new developments. This Code replaces Development Control Code for Best Practice Waste Management in the ACT 2014.

Any proposed deviation from the requirements of this Development Control Code must be approved in writing by Asset Acceptance prior to the submission of a Development Application.
