The cost of Waste Management for any business in the
construction and demolition sector is estimated at 5%
- or greater in some cases.
This has a major impact on 'bottom line' or
profitability on an annual basis.
Added to this, new legislative requirements and voluntary
initiatives, relating to pro-active waste and environmental
management, have left many construction companies struggling
with formulating best waste practice and environmental strategy
- including rolling out practical site waste management measures.
Tonra Ltd. have outlined 10 simple steps which
construction Site Managers can take to implement good waste
management practice on site or to improve and validate existing
systems. These 'top tips' are further reinforced
with a collation of information, web links and contact details
which Site Managers will need in order to write effective
Site Waste Management Plans and verify legal requirements
in relation to waste management obligations.
There are also free downloads of a handbook for C&D Waste
Management in Ireland, aimed at Contractors and Site Managers
and forms for waste management record-keeping.
Patel Tonra Ltd. designed and deliver the FÁS/Construction
Industry Federation national training programme on Waste Management
for Construction & Demolition Site Managers and are highly
