Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP) are planning documents. They show the amount and type of waste that is estimated for a project and how this produced waste will then be disposed of.
Do I need a Site Waste Management Plan?
SWMP must be created for any construction project in England worth more than 300,000. They are a great way to help you reduce the amount of waste you produce and manage your waste more effectively. SWMPs are being promoted as an example of best practice in the construction industry.
What do I need to include in my Site Waste Management Plan?
Your site waste management plans must:
- Identify each type of waste expected to be produced during the project
- Estimate the quantity of each type that will be produced
- Identify the planned waste management action proposed for each different type, including on- or off-site reuse, on- or off-site recycling, or disposal
