A free app is available that aims to build on Wales' landfill reduction success to help divert waste from landfill when builders and trades people carry out renovation and repairs for homeowners.
Called Skip Advisor, the iPhone app launched by Constructing Excellence in Wales gives advice on who is responsible for waste, what these responsibilities are, it also 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 ends up in a mixed waste skip and we felt that we could do more to help people take steps to reduce waste and save money by ensuring 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 the nearest Green Compass waste management company. A Green Compass waste company will provide clear and accurate data on how much waste is being diverted from 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.
