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.
