WRAP requests feedback on construction waste recycling framework

Research to gauge the potential of a new construction waste recycling framework has been launched by the Waste & Resources Action Programme. The framework would offer construction companies and their waste managers information about waste processing and recovery routes.

Material recycling programme manager Mike Falconer Hall said: WRAP is committed to helping the construction sector halve the amount of waste it sends to landfill by 2012 and the development of a construction waste recycling framework could significantly aid the industry as it drives towards the target.

Using the framework, construction companies could make significant savings on waste disposal, WRAP said. The information will also enable companies to find new waste management contractors and help them meet their waste reduction and recovery targets.

WRAP is looking for feedback from the construction and waste management industries to its upcoming feasibility study and consultations on the framework.

Falconer Hall said: To assess whether this tool would be useful and how it could best meet the needs of the construction industry, we first need to understand how companies and businesses view the resources and communications networks that are already available.
