Waste Requirements for Design of New Developments and Collection
The City of Hamilton's Waste Requirements for Design of New Developments and Collection provides information on how new developments must be designed to ensure safe waste collection services through the City.
Additionally, the requirements include design principles for new developments to:
- Provide efficient movement of waste collection vehicles
- Ensure that all occupants have equal access to both garbage disposal and waste diversion programs provided by the City for that development type or provide greater accessibility to waste diversion programs than garbage disposal.
In all cases, best efforts should be made to satisfy these principles.
All properties requesting municipal waste collection services must:
- Be constructed according to the submitted drawings approved by the City
- Successfully apply for waste collection services.
Redevelopments where a change of service or classification occurs should meet all applicable requirements set forth in the design requirements (for example: a single family residential property being redesigned into a multiple dwelling with five units).
