Compliance with the Waste Management Plan will ensure maximum recycling, reuse and recovery of waste with diversion from landfill, wherever possible.

The guidelines outline the issues that need to be addressed at the pre-planning stage of a development, through to completion and are considered to define best practice for C&D projects in Ireland and describe how C&D projects are to be undertaken such that environmental impacts and risks are minimised and maximum levels of waste recycling are achieved.

The guidelines include:

• Predicted C&D wastes and procedures to prevent, minimise, recycle and reuse wastes.
