Site Waste Management Plans in the UK
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
We remove waste, rubbish and unwanted items from commercial premises, construction sites and domestic houses and gardens.

We can’t collect certain hazardous materials such as paint cans, motor oils, chemicals, solvents, asbestos, medical or biological waste but your local authority can offer advice on how you should dispose of them. Certain items, which we can collect, are classified as hazardous waste because of the way in which they need to be disposed. These items include computer monitors, fridges and freezers. There is a supplement rate for these items because our disposal costs are higher.
We charge by weight or volume where as Skip Hire is charged on the size of the skip and not the amount of waste that is put into it. Skips can cause the added hassle and expense of having to apply for a skip permit in advance and you run the risk of fly tipping into the skip.

We charge by volume – for example how much space has been taken up in the truck. However, if your materials are particularly heavy – for example, is it soil or rubble – we charge based on weight.
No, providing our teams can access the waste. Our team will call you with an exact quote and then process your card payment on completion. Our teams take photos before and after and we can send this to you on request.

Yes. Our teams are supplied with safety boots and branded clothing. A spare set is always in the truck so they are clean and presentable for the next collection.
