Waste and material reuse on construction sites

June 21, 2021

Tuesday, 10 August, 12:30–13:15

From a sustainability, environmental or economic standpoint, the benefits of reusing material over off-site disposal to landfill can be significant. However, the mechanisms involved in the reuse of materials on (or between) construction sites are complex and are often not fully understood. Awareness of the available options not only helps to make better-informed commercial and practical decisions, but also ensures that one does not fall foul of the current waste regulations and avoids the pitfalls of accidentally carrying out illegal waste-disposal activities that would potentially incur landfill tax in addition to any costs associated with enforcement.

In this webinar, we will seek to provide clarity on the most appropriate uses for environmental permits, waste exemptions, Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) quality protocols and regulatory position statements. Ultimately, we will seek to explain how materials management plans (MMP) provide the most cost-effective approach in reusing construction waste under the Definition of Waste: Development Industry Code of Practice (DoWCoP), providing that the scenario is suitable, a number of key factors are met and the process is adhered to in full.
