This business process sets out: a) Network Rail's compliance requirements for managing waste from Network Rail sites and infrastructure; and b) what Network Rail, its contractors and third parties are required to achieve for effective waste management, in line with Network Rail Environment and Sustainable Development strategy and KPIs.
It applies to any activity that produces waste at any Network Rail site, including fly tipping and littering on Network Rail land.
This business process enables Network Rail to:
a) manage risks and maximise opportunities around production and management of waste to protect the business and the environment;
b) reduce the amount of material we use and minimise the amount of waste we produce; and
c) comply with waste management legislation and enable good practice.
These requirements reduce waste to landfill, improve recycling and reuse whilst reducing costs.
