Site Waste Management Plans

SWMP's encourage the effective management of materials and ensure waste is considered at all stages of a project - from design through to completion. We have a series of free tools and guidance materials to assist the construction industry with developing and using SWMP's.

From 1 December the legislation surrounding SWMPs in England will no longer be in place.  While no longer legislation SWMPs are still considered to be good practice. We will be making minor adjustments to the SWMP templates to address the removal of this legislation.  Updated templates should be available early in 2014.

SWMP Template

WRAP's SWMP Template is Microsoft Excel based and enables you to identify good and best practice opportunities to drive down waste and potentially reduce costs. The Template been developed to support users to move towards good practice waste management.

Site-Specific Waste Analysis Tool

The SSWAT calculates the recovery rates of CD&E waste at Materials Recovery Facilities and Waste Transfer Stations on a consignment specific basis. It assists Waste Management Contractors with their reporting of recovery information to construction clients.

There are two versions of the SSWAT tool available for download.

Version 1: An MS Excel workbook to estimate recovered material from mixed waste skip consignments. Works with all versions of MS Excel.

Version 2: As well as an improved interface to make it easier to input data and navigate around the tool, new functionality allows you to:

  • track consignments entering the facility and summarise consignments for a specific customer;
  • list all consignments from a specific project or site; and
  • detail consignments within a given date range.

Please note: Due to the enhanced data storage element in Version 2 you will need to be using MS Excel 2007, with Service Pack 2 installed. Version 2 is still usable with an earlier version of Excel however you may encounter errors when trying to run the reports.
