Management and disposal of waste after completion of construction work in a demolition or a building site is very important
According to statistics, the demolition and building industry in the UK has seen an increased waste production. The waste produced by the industry has risen from 59.2 to 66.2 million tonnes between 2010 and 2016. With waste recovery rates of more than 90%, it is important to maintain or improve the high standards. Your company should do its part in the overall management of construction waste. Let us look at some of the benefits your company will derive from effective management and disposal of construction waste.
Compliance with UK laws
According to the Waste Regulation of 2011, businesses have the legal responsibility of controlling their waste. Proper disposal of construction waste will ensure that your business is not entangled in potentially protracted and costly lawsuits.
Health and safety standards
The safety and health of your employees and members of the public should be a top priority for your business. Proper management, such as disposing of after-builds from a site can prevent possible accidents. Removing construction waste from working space ensures that they are not left in inappropriate locations where they can be hazardous.
A business that is cautious and concerned about environmental safety and health is likely to develop a positive reputation. This will improve the relationship with clients and possibly create opportunities with government-sponsored projects.
Corporate social responsibility
Proper waste management will ensure that the environment and its natural resources are conserved for current and future generations. If your company cannot manage its construction waste on its own, you can always seek professional and expert clean-up services from firms that specialise in that area.
A company that is committed towards proper waste disposal will not only have safe and sustainable practices but will also create a long-lasting culture among employees. They will also feel compelled to emulate such practices in their work and personal lives.
