Short description: Extract: This guidance is for anyone planning and/or carrying out construction work and for officials monitoring compliance with Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs). It explains the purpose behind the plans, the legal duty to write and implement one and how, by completing one, construction project costs can be significantly cut. Above all it demonstrates that SWMPs are only part of the story; that by addressing materials resource efficiency at the earliest stage in the design process savings can be maximised and construction made more sustainable.
