Waste Management Bye Laws

These bye-laws govern a range of issues, including

  • obliging consumers to participate in an authorized waste collection service or provide documentary proof on what alternative means they use to dispose of their waste, and
  • encouraging greater segregation of waste to reduce volumes of residual waste collected.

Do you want to make a practical start to meeting the climate challenge?

This means that from now on, every household must be able to prove that they have a contract in place with an authorized waste collector or that they regularly use a civic amenity site or recycling center. By correctly managing your waste you will:

  • Make an important contribution to meeting the climate challenge
  • Improve the quantity and quality of recyclable material collected
  • Reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and incineration
  • Help conserve planet Earth’s finite resources

Who do these bye-laws apply to?

These bye-laws apply to all households, apartments and commercial premises.

Why do we need these bye-laws?

  • To help you manage your waste in an environmentally acceptable manner
  • To ensure that your waste is only given to an authorised door-to-door waste collector or brought to an authorised waste facility e.g. civic amenity sites
  • To help ensure your waste is correctly segregated
  • By correctly managing your waste you will:
    • Make a contribution to meeting the climate challenge
    • Improve the quantity and quality of recyclable* material collected
    • Reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and incineration
    • Help conserve planet Earth’s finite resources
  • To reduce illegal dumping and backyard burning. 

How do I comply with the bye-laws?

In order to manage your waste correctly you must either:

  • Have a contract in place with an authorised door-to-door waste collector
  • Have a bin sharing agreement in place ensure that the account holder has provided you with proof of agreement
  • Demonstrate regular use of an authorised waste facility e.g. civic amenity site

Whichever option you chose, you must be able to provide documentary evidence, such as receipts, statements or other proof of payment or for bin sharing a signed letter of consent from the person who holds the contract.
