Ashford Construction Project

Ashford’s Future has commissioned Remade South East to deliver the Ashford Construction Project to provide advice and expertise on Site Waste Management Plans and other aspects of sustainable construction to construction sites in Ashford.

DevelopmentThe project aims to encourage sites to minimise and recycle waste, rather than send it straight to landfill and supports delivery of sustainable growth in the town.

The project was launched in October 2008 and immediately resulted in five construction companies pledging their support to the scheme.
A total of thirteen companies and nine active sites are now committed to the project and over 1,600 tonnes was diverted from landfill in the first year.

The Ashford Construction Project provides companies with:

  • FREE Practical help with Site Waste Management Plans including creation, monitoring and data collection
  • FREE Tool-box talks and Site Waste Management Plans training sessions
  • FREE Procurement assistance to minimise waste and increase recycled-content materials

For more information about the project and how to get involved please visit the Remade website.

The website has further details on Site Waste Management Plans, the SMARTwaste programme, case studies of companies involved in the project, information on sustainably sourced and energy efficient construction products and waste related legislation.
