Site Waste Management Plans
Site waste is harmful to the environment and to your business.
To help tackle the issue of site waste, Defra introduced Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs).
These are now a legal requirement in England for construction projects begun after 6th April 2008,
worth over £300,000.
A SWMP provides a structure for waste delivery and disposal at all stages during a construction project.
Typically it will identify the following:
- Who will be responsible for resource management
- What types of waste will be generated
- How the waste will be managed – will it be reduced, reused or recycled?
- Which contractors will be used to ensure the waste is correctly recycled or disposed of responsibly and legally
- How the quantity of waste generated
A successful SWMP requires careful planning and preparation. Naturally, the bigger the project, the
more work will be required. Although it may be tempting to just get on with the construction work,
you will need to stop and prepare – the best time to do this is while your project is being planned.
Ward Recycling offer complete management of the SWMP from the initial assessments to updating all data relevant the the project and producing the final report.
We also work with BRE to deliver an integrated solution which ensures:
- Enables legal compliance
