Waste Management

Our waste management expertise has been gained over many years, providing our staff with the ability to offer innovative solutions that meet and manage the needs and complexities of each individual project. The onemilegrid team is experienced in preparing Waste Management Plans on a diverse range of projects from medium and high-density residential developments, retail, to office and mixed-use projects. We understand the requirements for transfer, compaction, storage and collection of waste can be significant for a project in terms of both floor area requirements and accessibility requirements for transfer and collection.

We are also well versed in providing swept path analysis of garbage collection routes for a broad spectrum of development proposals; both large residential subdivisions and shopping centres and small unit developments and townhouses alike.

The onemilegrid team can advise on the most practical and best value for money methods to cater for all waste streams including:

  • Garbage

  • Paper and Cardboard

  • Hard Waste
  • Charity Goods

Through our extensive experience, onemilegrid team members have built a close working relationship with a number of Council Waste Departments; this guarantees we always aware and up-to-date on the latest council specific waste requirements.
