Construction & Demolition Waste Management & Disposal

  • 5 CPD Hours Apex Building, Blackthorn Road, Sandyford Business District, D. 18 (map)

The construction/demolition industry is one of the largest waste producers in Ireland. Making provisions for sustainable and proper waste management is now a necessity, not a luxury, becoming a key concern within the private and public sectors.

This one-day CPD course will show you the key issues and best practice regarding managing and disposing of waste on construction and demolition sites. We will examine key policies and legislation within Ireland and the EU. You will learn best practice for the management of soil & stones, as well as other construction wastes, as well as establishing the best end destinations for each. You will also learn the steps involved regarding re-use of concrete on site, and will gain expert insights into sustainable waste management, examining topics such as green procurement, and LEED & BREEAM credits.

UPDATE: Under the Waste Framework Directive, a material can be declared a ‘by-product,’ so that it does not need to be handled as a waste. Article 27 of the European Communities (Waste Directive) Regulations, 2011, allows an “economic operator” to decide, under certain circumstances, that a material is a by-product and not a waste. This has become a very hot topic recently and Article 27 applications will be discussed in this training course.

All attendees will receive a full course pack to refer back to, will gain expert insight from our trainers who are highly experienced and one of the leading waste consultancies in the country. All attendees will receive 5 structured CPD points to add to their yearly requirements, if applicable.
