A39 Packaging Waste Management (Checklist)

A39 Packaging Waste Management
(Checklist): 


Problems:

  • Single journey pallets are liable to fail on that journey or upon delivery, leading to damage or wasting of the materials carried
  • Single journey pallets end up in skips
  • Pallets occupy a great deal of air space and consequently cost lots of money to dispose of

Misunderstandings:

  • The aim with reducing packaging is avoid excessive packaging, but not to generate damage by lack of or inadequate packaging.

Solutions:

  • Only permit the use of multiple journey pallets
  • Use recycled plastic pallets
  • Use pallets to create on site composting bins
  • Use pallets to make furniture

Consider:

Onsite compaction and storage of recyclable materials:

  • especially packaging and protection
  • Many bins, colour coded lid and body combinations, segregation for reuse and recycling

Skip Lids:

  • lockable type to be selected, for lids with apertures
  • Coloured to match base
  • Aperture: to suit contents
  • Labels indicating contents:
  • Bin Store Signs for guidance and educational opportunity

Material:

  • 100% recycled HDPE High Density Polyethylene, UV stabilised, Recyclable

Waste Issues:

Hazardous waste & Deleterious Substances

Waste Statistics:

  • 2002 CIRIA / Viridis survey shows 90m tonnes per annum
  • 36% of materials delivered to building sites leave in mixed skips
  • Packaging regularly represents between 5 and 20% of the waste stream on many building types
  • Glass façade and Steel or Concrete structured office buildings: packaging is 50% of the waste stream
  • 2.9 m tonnes (3.2% of 90 m. tonnes/year) of waste is through damage due to methods of work
  • 0.9 m tonnes (1% of 90 m. tonnes/year) of waste is generated by poor storage

NGS ROBUST SPECIFICATION

  • NGS GBS J A39 Packaging Waste Specification:
  • BRE guidance and ASWS/NGS A39 Specification clauses have achieved significant reduction in recent projects
  • Assign responsibility and make packaging waste an issue for contractor’s meetings

Clauses address:

  • Identify any packaging materials and set aside for reuse or recycling on or off site
  • Determine Employer’s and any legal requirements about burning on site?
  • Provide separate skips for all packaging materials
  • Segregate all packaging materials
  • Remove foreign objects from salvaged materials
  • Schemes are emerging to:
  • Segregate waste at municipal/commercial tips
  • Lists Reference Documents
  • Client and Project packaging waste reduction initiative, making somebody responsible, setting targets, reporting to meetings
  • Local Authority waste segregation strategy
  • Pre and post Tendering requirements
  • Skips and Bin numbers and distribution
  • Labels, colour coding and signs
  • Waste avoidance, damage prevention and minimisation
  • Waste Recovery and segregation
  • Reuse and Recycling of materials on and off site
  • Removal of surplus
  • Waste management and minimisation method statement
  • Waste monitoring and feedback
  • Offsite disposal and recycling
  • Use or return, Return materials to source and Take back schemes
  • Waste bins made of recyclate
