Construction firms offered free waste-reducing advice
The guide EN922 DIY Resource Efficiency Review: Build Cost Savings Into Your Construction Projects explains why firms should review their waste, how to carry out an assessment, and gives guidance on changing the way they carry out waste disposal.
Envirowise construction specialist Chris Hodgson commented;
“Reducing waste costs is a straightforward, effective way to help improve the bottom line and this new guide demonstrates how to secure significant cost savings with little or no upfront investment required,”
“Running a resource-efficient business can also help builders to better manage their potential liabilities, reducing their exposure to costly fines from improper waste management processes, as well as ensuring they are well-placed to make the most of the recovery when it comes."
According to research by Envirowise, construction firms could save as much as 40 per cent on their waste disposal costs by taking simple measures such as separating waste.
