Waste from temporary structures

Temporary support structures, or any other materials or systems brought on site to facilitate construction of a building and that subsequently enter the waste stream (albeit for recycling) will be considered as construction waste and contribute to the construction waste generated for the development.

If the support structure is reused on another site by the contractor (or another contractor) it has not entered the waste stream and, therefore, would not be included in the figures for waste generated. Reused timber formwork would be excluded in the same way.
