The Waste planning guidance document developed by the Suffolk Waste Partnership gives detailed information on all aspects of waste management that need to be taken into account when planning new developments, conversions or changes of use to an existing building. All waste authorities in Suffolk have worked together to develop this guidance, so it is applicable wherever your development is happening in the county.
West Suffolk’s policy is that bin provision is the responsibility of the developer. We can work with developers to provide bins at a discounted rate or give you the specification for you to source your own.
Further information on the capacity of bins, acceptable storage and other useful information is available in the document. Please contact the waste management department if you have any further questions.
