Site Impacts – Energy, Water, Carbon, Waste (SWMP)

Why do you need a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP)?

Site Waste Management Plans Regulations 2008 apply in England and came into force on 6th April 2008.

Currently the most common reasons are to obtain BREEAM credits (WST01) or to satisfy Planning Conditions. A WPSCC-created SWMP goes further – it will also:-

  • Prove you are satisfying your responsibilities under the (waste) Duty of Care regulations
  • Track the recycling rates your waste contractor(s) are achieving
  • Provide budget information, allowing you to compare waste overheads across projects to assist with accurate tendering
  • Feed into your Site Travel Plan
  • Contribute to your carbon footprint calculation
  • Assist with Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) points
