EPA’s new website is under construction. It contains links to our previous site while we add information.

Building and construction sites can cause pollution through waste and noise.

As a builder or construction worker, you must minimise your impact on the environment and local community.

Our guidance for the construction industry includes information on:

  • construction and demolition waste
  • transporting industrial waste
  • hiring skip bins
  • building sites and stormwater
  • construction noise.
