A construction site waste management plan is now a requirement for all construction sites in the UK. As part of this plan, it is good practice to monitor waste, recycle waste, set targets for waste and recycling and hence minimise what leaves the site for landfill

It is also useful to consider operational waste at the design stage as facilities can be provided at this stage to make it easy for occupants to recycle waste once the building is in use. Consider providing a storage space for recycling as part of the proposed development.
