Waste Management

 

Sustainability and the impact on the environment are becoming a more important influence on how the construction industry carries out its operations.

O'Neill & Brennan  Group  provide waste management solutions for construction projects.

A bespoke waste management strategy is prepared for each contract encompassing: 

- Forecasting of quantities and types of waste to be generated.
- Setting of target Key Performance Indicators (K.P.I.s) for the contract.
- The management, collection and transportation of waste on site.
- The processing of waste.
- Identifying which processes and facilities will be used to ensure the waste is correctly recycled or disposed of responsibly and legally.
- Providing and implementing a system to measure and report on the waste generated by the project.
- The implementation and enforcement of a site cleanliness regime, to ensure high levels of housekeeping.
- The provision of feedback and lessons learnt on project completion.

Our waste management service ensures that all of our client's responsibilities with regard to UK and EU legislation are met.

O'Neill & Brennan  Group  collaborate with our clients in the preparation, implementation and updating of Site Waste Management Plans.

By implementing an  O'Neill & Brennan  Group  Waste Management Strategy we provide our clients with a means to achieve the highest possible ratings under environmental assessment methods, such as BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Our Waste Management Strategies primary aim is to minimise the total amount of waste produced 
from a project. Our main drivers from the Waste Hierarchy will be the 3 R's. Reduce Re-use Recycle.

By the implementation of our Waste Management Strategy, we aim to achieve the following benefits

- Cost savings and cost certainty.
- A reduction in environmental impact.
- Reduced safety hazards, resulting in fewer accidents.
- Improved site productivity.
- Improved quality and workmanship.

Traceability

Traceability is an important element of the Waste Management Strategy. The following is examples 
of what occurs to waste when it leaves site.

Recycled Paper and Cardboard 

Reprocessed in the UK and Far East and made into a range of recycled paper and card products.

Renewable Fuels 

Used in a number of UK renewable energy plants replacing fossil fuels.

Recycled Plastics 

Reprocessed in the UK, Europe and Far East. Different grades of plastics are made into different pellets 
and reused in bottle manufacturing, textiles and other manufacturing processes.

Recovered Soils 

Used for land restoration projects.

Recovered Aggregates 

Used on construction and road building projects.

Recovered Wood 

Is graded, chipped then reused in the UK manufacture of chipboard and biomass fuel.

Waste Awareness for Workforce

It is important that all of the workforce on a project are inducted and educated on the general site arrangements and/or trade specific waste arrangements.

Site Cleanliness

Failure of subcontractors to carry out their responsibilities will result in them being issued with 
a H&S/Clearance Notice.

As an alternative to paper forms, we are able to offer a web based system for issuing and controlling clearance notices. This system utilises a P.D.A., which gives the Waste Manager the facility to issue notices via email whilst performing his regular on site inspections.

Feedback & Lessons Learnt

Data collected can be used to produce a final review report, encompassing the following

- Performance against targets on a project basis.
- Performance against other contracts.
- Ensure that any lessons learnt are identified and addressed on future projects.

Segregation & Recycling Statistics

- Our reports will enable the Project Delivery Team to define waste streams, prioritise your waste strategy,  and meet environmental reporting requirements.
- It will monitor against company waste production targets.
- Recycling figures will be available to site on a monthly basis.

Auditing

- Regular reviews will be carried out during the project to address any deviations from the SWMP.
- All waste is monitored and recorded on the  O'Neill & Brennan  Site Services & Logistics  Waste Auditing and Benchmarking Tool.
- Installation of a Platform Weighing and Counting System for more accurate reporting.
- Good waste management practice should include: 
  - Identifying potential waste streams. 
  - Setting target recovery rates. 
  - Collection of waste. 
  - Transport of waste. 
  - Processing of waste. 
  - Disposal of waste. 
  - Measuring and reporting waste generation. 
  - Education of all site operatives in waste reduction.

Welfare Facilities

The provision and maintenance of good quality welfare facilities is not only important for the health and well being of all persons employed on a construction project, but also sends out the message that this is a well run contract where the welfare of all is of paramount importance.

O'Neill & Brennan  Site Services & Logistics offer

- Provision and placement of accommodation blocks.
- Temporary electrics.
- Temporary plumbing.
- Maintenance of temporary installations.
- Energy monitoring.
- Cleaning and Maintenance of project toilets and washrooms.
- Provision of janitorial supplies.
- Cleaning and maintenance of drying and changing rooms.
- Cleaning and maintenance of site offices and meeting rooms.
- Provision of beverages for site offices and meeting rooms.
- Cleaning and maintenance of general accommodation areas.
- Canteen set up, operation and cleaning.

It is our belief that by providing a high standard of welfare facilities, it will create a greater sense of pride 
on a project, leading to increased quality and motivation.

By providing good quality facilities that are well maintained, they are more likely to be respected and are less likely to be abused or vandalised.
