Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) Workshop – Swansea (morning)
Over a third of waste that goes to landfill in Wales is construction and demolition (C&D) waste. C&D waste is the second most commonly fly-tipped waste (after household waste). This kind of waste is found in the largest number of illegal waste sites known in Wales, and is a source of environmental pollution.
A Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) is a plan to help clients, developers and contractors in the C&D sector think before the start of a project about the waste that will be produced, how to reduce the waste and plan to sustainably manage waste that does arise.
The Welsh Government would like to invite you to meet with policy officials to discuss proposals to make Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs) a mandatory requirement for C&D projects in Wales to address a number of waste management issues facing the C&D sector. The Welsh Government is seeking your views on the consultation proposals on implementing SWMPs through regulations including the scope, content and enforcement of SWMPs. This is an opportunity for you to get a clear understanding of the consultation proposals, to discuss the implications of the policy and to give us your views.
The consultation period is over 12 weeks commencing 31st January 2013, and closes 25th April 2013.
You can access the consultation documents, via the Welsh Government Website
