Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs)

Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs)

Site Waste Management Plans Regulations 2008 apply in England and come into force on 6th April 2008.

Why do you need a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP)?

The most common reasons currently are to obtain BREEAM credits (WST01), or satisfy Planning Conditions. A WPS SWMP goes further – it will also:-

  • Prove you are satisfying your responsibilities under the (waste) Duty of Care regulations.
  • Track the recycling rates your waste contractor(s) are achieving.
  • Provide budget information, allowing you to compare your waste overheads across projects to assist with accurate tendering.
  • Feed into your Site Travel Plan.
  • Contribute to your carbon footprint calculation.
  • Assist with Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) points.
