What are SWMPs?

Simply put, Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs) are a legal requirement in England for all construction projects begun after 6 April 2008, which is worth over £300,000.Even if your project is not large enough to require an SWMP, you could benefit by having one.

A SWMP sets out how resources will be managed and waste controlled at all stages of a construction project.

A SWMP covers:

  • Who will be responsible for resource management.What types of waste will be generated.
  • How the waste will be managed, will it be reduced, re-used or recycled?
  • Which contractors will be used to ensure the waste is correctly recycled or disposed of responsibly and legally.
