A new app that aims to build on wales' landfill reduction success.

A free iPhone app has been launched by Constructing Excellence in Wales (CEW) to help divert waste from landfill when builders and trades people carry out renovation and repairs for homeowners.

Called Skip Advisor, the app gives advice on what their responsibilities are, estimates how much waste each project will generate and highlights where to find Green Compass waste management companies across Wales.

"Much of the waste from building projects is classified as 'mixed waste' and we recognised that we could do more to help people take reasonable steps to ensure that it is managed properly. Wales has made great strides in reducing landfill and we've created Skip Advisor as a useful tool for the building trade as it locates your nearest Green Compass waste management company, which set out clear and accurate data on how much waste is being kept out of landfill" explains Paul Jennings of CEW.

The app also has a useful project estimator which lets users assess how much waste a renovation / new build is likely to generate so that skip disposal can be allowed for before work begins. Best practice guidance is also available on the app.
