This white paper is provided as guidance to assist companies, design teams and main contractors in achieving good practice whilst also demonstrating the opportunities for cost savings through the implementation of effective improved waste management strategies. It is based on a simple example, a new approach and the impact it has had on construction companies’ bottom line.
GPT says that the construction industry continues to be one of the most significant producers of waste across all commercial sectors and with pressures on budgets and enhanced deadlines, waste management plans are fast becoming one of the top priorities for the construction industry.
With the responsibility of managing large waste arisings, along with the potential impact to the environment as well as human health, it is vital that proper waste management procedures are put into practice across all construction sites. Site Waste Management Plans represent the extent of the sectors drive to take control of waste production and management, however, there must be room for better processes and procedures to reduce this further.
By implementing such changes, the construction sector could not just significantly reduce quantities of waste being sent to landfill, but also the overall amount of waste being produced and in doing so make a substantial contribution to sustainable development.
