Construction Waste Management – Construction Resource Efficiency (BREEAM WST01.1)

What is required for waste management Practices ?

This BREEAM credit was originally satisfied by producing a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) for a project. However, it is now 1 element of a site Resource Management Plan (RMP), combining waste management with the measuring / monitoring of site impacts.

Good waste management practices on site should be demonstrated by:-

  • Forecasting waste production
  • Documenting Waste Minimisation practices to be employed
  • Recording ALL waste arisings
  • Reviewing waste management performance by comparing actual arisings against forecasts
  • Documenting satisfaction of Waste Duty of Care (DOC) compliance


WPSCC’s software tool can include the recording of this data and will report is as part of the site’s Resource Management Plan (RMP).
