New medium density development in Western Sydney


Waste and recycling is an essential service provided by local councils to every household. The potential impact of waste planning and service delivery on the safety, health, amenity and wellbeing of local communities cannot be underestimated. For the best social and environmental outcomes, waste management must be adequately addressed at all levels of the planning system.


The release of the Greater Sydney Commission District Plans has created a timely opportunity for councils to ensure there are adequate waste and recycling provisions within their Local Strategic Planning Statement and Local Environment Plan (LEP) to support the sustainable delivery of waste functions and resource recovery objectives.


This Implementation Guidance Document (540 KB) has been developed to assist councils in this process.
