Managing and Minimizing Construction Waste: A Practical Guide
Thomas Telford, 1995 - Technology & Engineering - 60 pages
Over two billion tonnes of waste are generated in the European Union every year, approximately half of which comes from the construction industry. Increasing pressure on landfill sites, accompanied by escalating prices and a growing awareness of environmental concerns has made the minimization of this waste and ites responsible disposal an absolute necessity. The Environment Protection Act 1990 placed a Duty of Care on every individual involved in the creation, storage, transportation or disposal of waste. This practical guide for everyone involved with the construction industry outlines how to manage waste from construction economically and in accordance with the legal requirements of the Duty of Care. It explains in detail all actions required of the responsible person and offers extremely practical advice on how to minimize the amount of waste produced, thus saving costs and reducing the environmental impact.
