The Waste Hierarchy 

The report follows the waste hierarchy and aims to minimize disposal to landfill. During the construction phase the SIte Waste Management plan makes recommendations as to good working practice that can reduce wastes. Suggestion such as:

“The design should be coordinated to avoid excess cutting and jointing of materials. Off-cuts create waste, where possible designed to standardized material dimensions. This would also apply to bespoke structural elements such as form work, where repetition of measurements should be encouraged where possible.”
