New Construction Waste Laws soon to come into operation

Are you aware of the new site waste management plan legislation?

Release date: 03/12/2007

If you work in the construction industry in England, it is likely that you will need to produce a site waste management plan (SWMP) by April 2008.

The Environment Agency NetRegs site has produced a practical guide to help you build your own SWMP, and will also show you how it could save you money. There is also a short quiz on the site, which will enable you to check if your business complies with environmental law.

Visit the Environment Agency’s small business website at for more information.

GBN is also running a Construction Special CIWM Waste Awareness Certificate Course on 4 February 2008. This course focuses on waste in the construction industry and will be looking in particular at Site Waste Management Plans. The cost will be £80 +VAT to GBN members, and £120 +VAT to non-members. For bookings and details visit the seminars section on our website.
