Site waste management plans

Construction business has never been more complex. Not only must you demonstrate quality and value for money, but you must also balance that with being a sustainable, planet friendly project. Construction is a major consumer of resources and producer of waste, taking almost a third of landfill annually.

So, what can you do?

Developing and implementing a site waste management plan (SWMP) for a construction project is a proven way to demonstrate your sustainability credentials. If you are delivering a BREEAM project you are likely to have to develop a SWMP. Similarly it may also be required by the local planning authority.

SmartWaste provides a management tool to help you build your SWMP and implement it on your project. It covers all the necessary steps: identifying responsibilities, waste minimisation plans, forecasting and waste management options, through your duty-of-care obligations, training and communication, to measuring actual performance against the forecast and the ongoing review of your plan.
