Waste Audit Statement
When is this required:
Major development proposals
What information is required:
The statement should demonstrate how through the demolition, construction and operational phases of development, waste generated on site has been minimised and that it will be managed in accordance with the waste hierarchy. The statement should include the following information, where relevant to the proposed development:
- sustainable procurement measures to minimise the generation of waste during the construction process, including avoidance of over-ordering and reduced use of hazardous materials;
- the types and quantities of waste that will be generated during the demolition and construction phases and the measures to ensure that the waste is managed in accordance with the waste hierarchy including:
- the segregation of waste materials to enable their separate reuse, recycling or recovery;
- the recycling of construction, demolition and excavation waste for use on site or, where not possible at the nearest suitable facility; and
- minimising any waste materials that are unsuitable for reuse, recycling or recovery, confirmation of the location for their disposal.
- the types and quantities of waste that will be generated during the operational phase of the development and measures to ensure that the waste is managed in accordance with the waste hierarchy including:
- methods for limiting the generation of waste; and
- the provision of sufficient storage facilities to enable the segregation of reusable and recyclable waste from waste requiring disposal; and any other steps that are necessary to secure the maximum diversion of waste from disposal.
