Building site rubbish and refuse

It is a requirement of the City of Armadale’s Local Laws that rubbish receptacles are available on every building site. They must be adequate enough to ensure that the site is kept as clean and clear of rubbish as possible, and prevent any rubbish from being blown off site on to other properties.

Please contact us with enquiries or to make a complaint regarding rubbish and refuse on development and construction sites. 

Infringement Notices (with modified penalties of up to $500 for each offence) will be issued to those builders that do not meet the requirements.

Noise management

Under the Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 construction work must only be carried out between the hours of 7am and 7pm, Monday to Saturday.

A Noise Management Plan must be submitted to the City seven days prior to any works commencing that are:

  • Outside the hours of 7am and 7pm, Monday to Saturday
  • Associated with construction of industrial, commercial or multiple unit residential developments
  • In close proximity to residential areas
  • Likely to generate unreasonable noise.

Please complete the Application for Approval of a Noise Management Plan and accompanying Noise Management Plan to the City by email or in person, with the required payment.

Note, it is an offence under the Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 to commence any works without an approved Noise Management Plan. Penalties apply.
