Construction & Civil Engineering Waste Solutions

With waste management becoming increasingly important in Construction, as it accounts for the highest percentage of resource waste in the country than any other industry, a proper Site Waste Management Plan is essential.

Not only is it important to alleviate the demand on landfill sites, but also to save on operational costs.

Site Waste Management Plans

By preparing a Site Waste Management Plan there will be forward planning and forethought to the costs considered and will ensure many potential mistakes are avoided; such as over ordering, unnecessary waste transport costs and unexpected landfill taxes.


As a part of a waste management plan, the incorporation of an onsite incinerator can be beneficial in a number of ways.

Incinerating waste can reduce the volume of waste to be disposed of at a landfill down to as little as 3% of it’s original volume therefore significantly reducing the landfill costs. It can dispose of unrecyclable waste, so anything that can’t be reused or recycled can still be disposed of safely*.

Part of the LCT and LCA directives, a suggestion and consideration for waste management is to utilise energy recovery technologies. INCINER8’s Waste to Energy solutions allow you to recover the heat from burning waste, exchange it and turn it into usable energy decreasing the amount of resource required to power a large-scale construction project.

Waste Management Plans Allow You To Budget, Forecast and Control All Eventualities and Costs in Managing your Waste.

What types of construction waste streams can be incinerated?

Dry, easily separated materials with a high calorific content – such as wood – are ideal waste streams for combustion

  • Plastics & Packaging
  • Untreated Timber
  • Vegetation & Bamboo
  • Doors & Window Frames*
  • Cardboard and Paper
  • Bituminous Mixtures (Coal Tar and Tar)
  • Paints and Varnishes
  • Adhesives and Sealants

* - providing they are untreated. Please contact us if you require treated wood incineration.

Typical waste from building site

When burnt, they recover the most energy and displace the need to provide energy by other means. This is actually the preferred method of disposal for these items above that of recycling due to the potential amount of the energy recovered.

Hazardous and problematic waste can be completely destroyed via incineration, leaving only harmless ash to be disposed of safely.

If you wish to incinerate as part of a manufacturing process then read our industrial incinerators page.
