Synopsis

In the UK, over 500 million tonnes of construction waste is generated each year. With landfill capacity becoming a scarce and expensive resource, and with the possibility of criminal liability should you breach the regulations set our in the Duty of Care and the Environmental Protection Act 1990, it is now more important than ever before that more thought and planning is put into the managing and minimising of construction waste. If the same ingenuity and imagination that has been applied to recycling household waste, were applied to construction waste the environmental benefits and the cost saved would be immense."Managing and Minimising Construction Waste" provides practical advice and guidance on how you can design, plan and implement the most effective and efficient methods for managing and minimising construction waste. There are many simple ways of preventing much of the construction waste generated in the UK, and this book outlines, with the aid of case studies, worked examples and checklists, some of the practical solutions that firms have employed to minimise construction waste.

The guide also explains the different types of construction waste and the laws and regulations that affect the control and handling of this waste. Written by the Institution of Civil Engineers, "Managing and Minimising Construction Waste" will become the established working guide for all engineers working in construction including: clients; developers; designers; architects; builders; contractors; consultants; civil engineers; industrialists; and town planners.
