Multi-unit developments

Multi-unit development collection service requests

Recycling and waste systems in multi-unit developments (MUDs) and apartments vary considerably. Some have recycling and rubbish chutes, and some have a central place such as basement with hoppers and bins that will require waste to be separated by material type.

The following booking forms are available to help you manage bin services at your multi-unit development. They are for strata managers, managing agents, body corporate and owner corporations only.
