1. Compliance

It is a legal requirement to complete a waste transfer note for each load of waste generated that leaves your premises, whether it is recyclable materials or not, or liquid and solid waste. Furthermore, it is important to use the waste hierarchy when managing your business’s waste. The Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 requires context when managing your business’s waste. You should start with prevention, followed by reuse or recycling and minimization. By completing these steps, you will ensure compliance with the UK government’s laws of waste management requirements.

2. Health and Safety

This is probably an obvious one, but it is still a fantastic benefit! The construction process has a lot of waste produced and produces a more dangerous environment in work in with all of the construction and demolition debris and excavation waste. Careful waste storage and having a site waste management plan minimises possible hazards and accidents around the construction site and protect human health.

3. Corporate environments responsibility

In order to limit the amount of waste you generate as well as maximize the number of resources you can reuse in your construction project, it is an essential aspect to reduce what goes into your landfill. This will put less strain on the natural resources we have left and you can fell proud knowing your business is playing a part in reserving our planet with a sustainable building.

4. Progressive work ethic

By employing this integral part of work ethic in your business, it could spread in other ways outside of your business. Employees who take care of the waste generated responsibly at work may also do the same at home and be more conscious of it in future jobs. This will hopefully lead to the safe disposing of waste to occur as standard practice.

5. Low expenditure

Spending will be reduced by using stuff that has been left over from previous projects and you won’t have to pay any landfill fees. The landfill tax was increased by HMRC on April 1, 2020, so if you start managing your waste better now, you could save so much more money for your business.

6. Positive Reputation

One of the major things construction sites are becoming increasingly aware of is environmental responsibility with their construction activity. Environmental ownership can help to improve your reputation in the community, but it also helps make sure your workplace is sustainable and having good waste management standards could even help you gain funding from the UK government.
