CIRIA launches construction waste conference

The UK annually produces 100 million tonnes of controlled waste, with construction companies spending 4.5% of their profits on removing it.

However, through improving on-site practices and understanding the principle that waste should be seen as a resource, the industry has the opportunity to improve its performance while still achieving competitive advantage.

This is the philosophy behind a new conference sponsored by Envirowise and Bywaters and supported by the Construction Confederation.

Resource efficiency and waste management- achieving sustainable waste practices will take a strategic look at managing waste and will provide practical guidance on how to achieve sustainable waste practices through a series of seminars and workshops.

As part of the Construction Industry Research and Information Associations (CIRIA) two-day EnviroSite and Land event, it will take place at the Millennium Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London on 7 November 2006.

The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management will assess key pieces of waste legislation while Alfred McAlpine Major Projects will appraise the impact of legislation on construction practices.

A wide variety of figures from companies, bodies and Government organisations will also speak at the event.
