Best practice guide to improving waste management on construction sites

Building simple best practice activities into your on-site projects can save you money and help you generate income through material re-use. This guide provides specific advice to help you reduce, re-use and recycle your construction waste. 

This guide is designed for site staff and supervisors who can influence effective waste management on-site. It is suited for everyone who produces waste on-site: those who have direct responsibility for managing the waste and establishing on-site waste protocols; and those who comply with waste management protocols, such as sub-contractors. Areas for collaboration are also identified.

The guide covers:

  • The value of best practice
  • Actions to take pre-construction
  • Waste minimisation through procurement
  • Site Waste Management Plans
  • Waste management and disposal best practice

Implementing best practice on-site has many benefits including income generation through: collection of materials for re-use; reducing costs through purchasing less material and maximising skip space; less accidents on-site through correct materials storage; regulatory compliance with Duty of Care requirements, and many more.
