Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
Rust can pollute water. Store metal reinforcement bars off the ground to reduce rusting and the risk of polluting water.
If you are storing reinforcement bars for prolonged periods of time, you should also keep them covered.
Use labelled containers to store smaller items (such as spacers) to help prevent them being lost or mislaid on site. This could not only help to reduce your level of wastage but also your costs.
Supply good quality gloves for steel fixers. This should enable you to reduce the quantity of gloves that you have to order and later dispose of.
The Northern Ireland Environment Agency has published a short guide to the duty of care responsibilities including advice and information for waste producers, carriers and those accepting, storing and treating waste.
Any person intending to alter the use or management of areas of uncultivated or semi-natural land must obtain prior approval from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).
