Contractor Waste Management Plan

Contractor Waste Management Plan

Purpose
BP expects selected Contractors, who generate, transport, own, dispose or arrange for disposal of waste associated with BP activities, to develop a Waste Management plan to address how waste will be managed on site, stored, labeled, manifested and which waste disposal / recycling companies have been identified to accept the waste.

The plan should be reviewed periodically and updated if waste streams are added, re-classified or procedures or regulations change. Some examples are as follows:

  • General statement regarding Contractor’s commitment to Waste Management
  • Identification of relevant waste streams (process wastes, maintenance wastes, spill clean-up wastes, etc.)
  • Procedures for classification of waste (i.e. MSDS, process knowledge, lab testing)
  • On-site management requirements (i.e. packaging, labeling, storing requirements)
  • Transportation considerations (i.e. manifests, proper containers, shipping papers, DOT Hazmat applicability, transportation arrangements)
  • Identification of waste recycling/disposal facilities for all waste streams generated
  • Waste training frequency and requirements
  • Revision log to document any updates to the plan required by management or regulatory changes.
