Saving Money, Resources and Carbon Through SMARTWaste
IHS BRE Press – 2013 – 32 pages
SMARTWaste Plan is an online tool that was developed by BRE to help users to prepare, implement and review their site waste management plans. This report provides an overview of SMARTWaste Plan and how the data it collects can be used. Since SMARTWaste Plan was introduced in 2008, data on over 6500 completed construction projects have been collected and this information has been used to produce a range of benchmarks and performance indicators. This report provides detailed performance indicators of waste arising (related to project value or floor area) for both newbuild and refurbishment projects. These performance indicators will be of interest to clients, contractors and planners, and information is provided on how the data can be used. The report also provides case studies showing how the tool can provide an overall view of all company projects and how it has helped users to reduce the time spent on recording data and producing reports, thereby saving money.
