Strata by-law templates for waste management

Waverley Council has prepared two strata by-law templates for waste management and provides these for free to strata communities within our Local Government Area.

The strata by-law templates are tools for strata communities to address waste management and disposal issues in apartment buildings and can be tailored for use at your building.

Strata by-law templates for waste management:

1. The Waste Disposal Strata By-Law Template:

    • clarifies responsibility for correct disposal of rubbish, recycling and bulky household waste; and
    • allows an owners corporation to recover costs and expenses from non-compliant owners.

2. The Moving In / Out Strata By-Law Template:

    • provides a resident induction process; and
    • sets standards and clarifies expectations for waste storage, waste disposal, and/or booking a collection of unwanted items for residents moving in or out.

The strata by-law templates for waste management have been drafted by strata lawyer Amanda Farmer exclusively for Waverley Council.

For information about the strata by-law templates, download the free Guide to creating by-laws to manage waste.
