The latest news and case studies from Sadler Energy

It is a mandatory requirement for all development projects over £300,000 within England to implement a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP). Part Waste 2 of the Code for Sustainable Homes 2010 deals specifically with Site Waste and there are 3 credits available for developers who implement a Site Waste Management Plan. It is therefore beneficial for both small and large developers to implement a SWMP, especially for those who are looking to achieve higher levels within the Code.

The key aspect of the Site Waste Management Plan is to forecast the amount of waste that is expected to be generated from the construction process. This enables the client to highlight areas where resource efficiencies can be made to reduce the amount of waste generated, reuse building materials and recycle the waste that is generated. It is therefore imperative to implement the Site Waste Management Plan as early as possible in the development process so that specification and work packages can be tailored using suggestions from the SWMP. For example trying to use standardised sizes to reduce the amount of waste produce from cut offs etc and making sure build products are bought to site as needed so that the time items are left on the building site are reduced so there is less risk of damage and wastage.

In a well planned Site Waste Management Plan with buy in from those working on site the developer can also benefit from Reusing build products, such as using second hand bricks from the demolition stage, or where cut offs have been generated using these on a different built process.

When waste has been taken off site the SWMP can help to identify responsible Waste Carriers and Waste Transfer Stations to make sure that the majority of waste is Recycled and therefore diverted from Landfill. Improved recycle rates and increased cost savings and be achieved by using onsite segregation.

WRAP have identified Standard, Good and Best Practice principles to enable organisations to take a step by step approach to resource efficiency, which can be viewed on their website at www.wrap.org.uk
