SkipAdvisor App Aims to Build on Wales' Landfill Reduction Success!
A free iPhone app has been launched by Constructing Excellence
in Wales (CEW) to help divert waste from landfill when builders and
trades people carry out renovation and repairs for homeowners.
Called SkipAdvisor, the app gives advice on what their
responsibilities are, estimates how much waste each project will
generate and highlights where to find Green Compass waste
management companies across Wales.
"Much of the waste from building projects is classified as
'mixed waste' and we recognised that we could do more to help
people take reasonable steps to ensure that it is managed properly.
Wales has made great strides in reducing landfill and we've created
SkipAdvisor as a useful tool for the building trade as it locates
your nearest Green Compass waste management company, which set out
clear and accurate data on how much waste is being kept out of
landfill" explains Paul Jennings of CEW.
The app also has a useful project estimator which lets users
assess how much waste a renovation / new build is likely to
generate so that skip disposal can be allowed for before work
begins. Best practice guidance is also available on the app.
