The Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) has published new guidance on waste in the construction industry, free to all companies working in the sector.
Waste Classification & Permitting in Construction – Guidance For The Construction Industry On The Waste Permitting Regime has been made freely available online. The guide has been produced by the CECA Environment Group, with input from the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.
Commenting, CECA National Civil Engineering Director Peter Crosland said that the document is a welcome addition to the complex world of waste regulation. Peter states: “This easy to follow document should be of use to anyone involved in dealing with waste from construction operations.
“The information is provided in clear, simple language with easy to follow Flow Charts and includes links throughout to take the reader to more specific information if necessary. “We hope that this guidance will be widely taken up, and will lead to the spread of best practice at all levels of the UK’s construction industry, to the benefit of our shared environment.”
