Free Site Waste Management Plan workshops offered to contruction firms

A series of free regional Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) workshops is being organised by the government-funded environmental advice agency Envirowise.
The workshops are designed to help construction companies implement SWMPs before their planned enforcement next year.The events, running from December 2006 to February next year, will help businesses understand and prepare SWMPs, and cover how planners, contractors and environmental managers can work together to develop them.Envirowise Construction specialist Mike Payne said: 'Not only can a SWMP help minimise site waste and reduce the costs of waste management, it can give companies better control of regulatory risks relating to site waste and materials. These workshops will provide everyone from site managers, planners and buyers with specialist advice on how to manage the reduction, re-use and recycling of materials and products, both on and off site.'Construction companies or local authority professionals interested in attending the free events should visit www.envirowise.gov.uk/swmpevents or telephone (0117) 372 1535.
