Waste Management

Waste engineering and management is the relationship between internal systems, occupants and collection contractors. Best practice waste management is a well-designed easy to use system. The earlier in the planning process waste is considered, the better the solution.

The Irwinconsult waste management team work with developers, architects and authorities across a range of industries including residential, commercial, retail, hospitality, medical, aged care, education, industrial and construction. Our waste system design provides a holistic approach from point of waste generation to point of disposal.

From masterplanning to construction, the waste engineering team is here to advise and integrate with your design, ensuring a coordinated, resolved outcome. Our waste design strives to minimise operational and physical impact, minimising labour and maximising leasable area.

The Irwinconsult team advise and work closely with both local and state government to drive best practice waste engineering policy and implementation, developing waste management guidelines for Council development and large scale infrastructure projects.

Irwinconsult waste engineers are Green Star Accredited Professionals with extensive experience with environmental ratings tools such as Green Star and NABERS.

The team is also highly experienced providing design advice regarding clinical waste provisions including laboratory specimens, cytotoxic waste, and anatomical waste. Our waste management services include:
