Introduction to Waste Management Plans

Site waste should be monitored and minimised wherever possible, with a clear management policy in place.

The Waste Management Plan (WMP) is a template based on the requirements of waste management legislation and can be used to allocate responsibilities for waste management on construction sites.

It is aimed at smaller contractors and builders to assist them in complying with waste management legislation and also to allow them to monitor their costs and environmental performance in relation to management of construction waste.

The first page of the downloadable document is a simple Excel spreadsheet, already populated with a list of Waste Codes for common wastes associated with construction works.

The WMP can be used to document waste carriers and disposal facilities, as well as provide a record of wastes generated, re-used, recycled and disposed, giving final quantities of wastes and the percentage diverted from landfill.

The second page includes explanatory notes on how to complete the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet can either be updated electronically by saving updated versions as works proceed, or by printing out the spreadsheet and completing updated versions by hand.

Although the WMP could be a very useful planning tool, companies need to ensure that it is adequate and tailored to their individual needs and the waste streams that they will produce.

Please be aware that this Scheme document has been produced as a template, which can be adapted to meet the individual needs of your site/ company.
