ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland has launched the Site Waste Reduction Protocol to facilitate carrying out, measuring and quantifying the reduction of construction site waste. The protocol is specifically designed to tackle the litter and consists of an Excel-based calculator tool designed by industry specialists, that helps site staff record and quantify everything that is being wasted. The big wins for the construction sector consist in keeping materials in use for longer through more modular building design and designing materials to be easy to disassemble and re-use, and in reducing the huge volumes of wasted materials. 
According to Zero Waste Scotland's Circularity Gap Report, the built environment, which currently contributes over 50% of Scotland's overall waste, is an essential pillar in moving to a circular economy. Moreover, reusing materials and reducing waste on site are major areas of concern.
