Environment & Sustainability

Sustainability is key to both the environmental protection of our natural landscape and to minimise the commercial risks of businesses throughout our region. As part of the wider initiative to reduce the impact of using natural quarried aggregates and bituminous products, as well as a reduction in the impact of landfilling, NWHAUC is proactively driving forward the use of recycled materials for both utility reinstatements and highway maintenance.

In line with the national WRAP (Waste Resources Action Programme) protocols, SROH (Specification for the Reinstatement of Openings in Highways) and HAUC UK Guidance and Advice Notes, NWHAUC is developing a set of guidelines on the use of preferred recycled materials and suppliers, together with advice on the testing and certification protocols required to attain approval.
