BUILDING tradesmen across Kirklees can find out how to make savings by reducing waste – thanks to new fact sheets from environmental advice group Envirowise.
The building industry creates some 120m tonnes of construction, demolition and excavation waste every year – about a third of all waste in the UK.
The new fact sheets provide information to help bricklayers, labourers, electricians, plumbers, decorators, plasterers and carpenters. The fact sheets can be downloaded for free at www.envirowise.gov.uk
Elin Crebbin, Envirowise regional manager for Yorkshire, said the new fact sheets could help local small builders and tradesmen find out the simple and effective ways to save money and help the environment.
They also highlight legislation affecting sole traders as well as giving details of organisations that can offer more help.
