Collaborative approach will encourage greater resource efficiency and increased waste-recycling
O’DONOVAN Waste have announced a new partnership with Construction Waste Portal to encourage better resource management and reuse of construction waste. The latter company’s smart system collects and analyses data from completed projects across the UK, enabling accurate forecasting, costing and reporting of waste generated from site.
The portal uses predictive algorithms based on the waste collected, helping buyers and planners to calculate, manage, reduce and prevent wastage on construction projects.
As one of the UK’s leading waste-management firms, O’Donovan have a track record for placing greener initiatives and environmental performance at the heart of their operations, having invested heavily in processing facilities and mobile plant to ensure 100% of all handled waste is reused, recycled and, ultimately, diverted from landfill.
Construction Waste Portal’s smart system connects waste producers with waste-management experts, making it easier for the wider construction sector to maximise resource efficiency to the highest possible environmental standards, from sustainability to decarbonization.
For O’Donovan Waste, the use of the portal will help refine costs and reduce time on procurement planning whilst minimizing a construction project’s impact on the environment.
Managing director Jacqueline O’Donovan commented: ‘The construction and associated industries are focusing on sustainable design that is improving all the time. Waste management is a vital part of the whole life of a building from design, planning, construction, operation – right up to deconstruction.
‘With net zero targets set for 2050, we need to participate in achieving more sustainable goals. The Construction Waste Portal uses innovation to help the construction and waste sectors join forces to become more resourceful and work towards our collective net-zero environmental impact without compromising safety.'
John Logan, founder of Construction Waste Portal, added: ‘The Portal will lead industry change on resource efficiency best practice by connecting construction projects with companies in the waste sector that aspire to be the elite. Having a reputation for excellence, I'm delighted that O'Donovan have endorsed our ambition by signing up to the website.’
