1    INTRODUCTION

 

The Waste Management Plan (WMP) has been developed in accordance with clause 2.10 of Environmental Permit EP-353/2009/C and clause 2.10 of Environmental Permit EP-354/2009/A and G.S. 25.25 of the Particular Specification for the Highways Department Contract namely Contract No. HY/2010/02 Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities –Reclamation Works (hereinafter the Contract)

 

1.1   Purpose of the Plan

 

This Waste Management Plan (WMP) aims to describe the arrangements for avoidance, minimization, handling, reuse, recovery and recycling, storage, transportation, collection, treatment and disposal of different categories of waste to be generated from the construction activities of this project. This WMP includes the recommended mitigations measures on waste management as contained as stipulated in EIA report and EM&A Manual.

 

The main objectives of the WMP include:

i)        providing reference to the waste management requirements, both statutory and non-statutory;

ii)      clarifying the responsibilities of each party on waste management and the personnel within the Contractor’s management;

iii)    establishing the waste management procedures for avoidance, minimization, material reuse/recovery/recycling, collection, transportation, storage and disposal of wastes generated from the activities.

 

 

1.2   Environmental Management Policy

 

An Environmental Management Policy is established to demonstrate the Company’s commitment in improving environmental performance.  It aims to communicate China Harbour Engineering Company’s mission, vision and beliefs towards the environment to the staff and provides a framework for guiding China Harbour Engineering Company’s ongoing environmental improvement efforts.

 

The policy will be reviewed by relevant parties periodically and will be displayed on notice boards in languages suitable for the nationality for the workforce.

 

 

The Environmental Policy Statement, together with the Environmental Objectives and Targets, are listed below:

image012

1.3   The waste management policy

 

To demonstrate the Project Team’s commitment on the continual improvement of our waste management performance, an Environmental Management Policy includes the waste management has been established.  It aims to communicate China Harbour Engineering Company’s waste management mission, vision and beliefs to the staff and public, it also provides a framework in guiding the project team the basic requirements to be achieved in waste management.

The hierarchy is illustrated below. It attempts to evaluate waste management practices and selects the best practical option since conceptually it makes sense to avoid producing a waste rather than developing extensive treatment schemes. Good planning and site management practices also help minimizing over ordering or misuse of construction materials. The overall objective is to reduce and minimize the amount of wastes generated, hence reducing the costs of waste handling and disposal.

1.4 Regulations and Guidelines

 

        General

 

1.4.1 Various types of wastes would be generated during the course of the Project and

each waste types requires different approach for management and disposal as stipulated in the waste legislation and guidelines.  The relevant statutory and non-statutory requirements regarding waste management are summarized in the sections below.

 

Statutory Requirements

 

1.4.2 The following legislation relates to the handling, treatment and disposal of wastes in

Hong Kong, and would be observed with regard to all wastes generated and requiring disposal, where applicable:

 

l   the Waste Disposal Ordinance (Cap 354)

l   the Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation (Cap 354)

l   the Waste Disposal (Charges for Disposal of Construction Waste) Regulation

l   the Land (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance (Cap 28)

l   the Dumping at Sea Ordinance (Cap 466)

l   the Public Health and Municipal Services Ordinance (Cap 132) - Public Cleansing and Prevention of Nuisances (Urban Council) and (Regional Council) By-Laws

l   Summary Offences Ordinance (Cap 228)

l   Other relevant regulations

 

1.4.3        The Waste Disposal Ordinance (WDO) prohibits the unauthorized disposal of

waste.  Construction waste is not directly defined in the WDO, but is considered to fall within the category of “trade waste.”  Under the WDO, wastes can only be disposed of at sites licensed by EPD.

 

1.4.4        Under the Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation all producers of chemical wastes (including asbestos) must register with EPD and treat their wastes either utilizing on-site plant licensed by EPD, or arranging for a licensed collector to take the wastes to a licensed facility.  The regulation also prescribes the storage facilities to be provided on site, including labeling and warning signs, and requires the preparation of written procedures and training to deal with emergencies such as spillages, leakages, or accidents arising from the storage of chemical wastes.

1.4.5         The current policy related to the dumping of C&D material is documented in the Works Branch Technical Circular No. 2/93, ‘Public Dumps’. Construction and demolition materials that are wholly inert, namely public fill, should not be disposed of to landfill, but taken to public filling areas, which usually form part of reclamation schemes.  The Land (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance requires that dumping licences be obtained by individuals or companies who deliver public fill to public filling areas. The Civil Engineering & Development Department (CEDD) issues the licences under delegated powers from the Director of Lands.

1.4.6         Under the WDO and the Charging Regulation, wastes can only be disposed of at designated waste disposal facilities licensed by EPD.  For construction work with a value of more than HK$1M, the main contractor is required to establish a billing account at EPD before transporting the construction waste to the designated waste disposal facilities (e.g. landfill, public fill etc.).  The vessels for delivering construction waste to public fill reception facility would need prior approval from EPD.  Breach of these regulations can lead to a fine and/or imprisonment.      

1.4.7        The Public Cleansing and Prevention of Nuisances By-Laws provide further controls on the illegal tipping of wastes on unauthorized (unlicensed) sites.

 

1.4.8        The Contractor would obtain all necessary permits and licenses under these ordinances including, but not limited to:

 

l   Chemical waste permits/licenses under the Waste Disposal Ordinance (Cap 354);

l   Public Dumping License under the Land (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance (Cap 28); and

 

 

       Non-statutory Regulations

 

1.4.9    The following guidelines related to waste management and disposal would be adhered to during construction of the Project:

 

l   Waste Disposal Plan for Hong Kong (1989), Planning, Environmental and Lands Branch Government Secretariat.

l   Environmental Guidelines for Planning in Hong Kong.  Hong Kong planning Standards and Guidelines (1990).

3    SITE SPECIFIC WASTE MANAGEMENT

 

 

Waste Policy Principles

Refer to hierarchy abovementioned in Section 1, a further explanation of the hierarchy of waste management on site is detailed below.

 

3.1 Hierarchy of Waste Management

 

3.1.1        Key to waste management is to reduce the amount of waste generated from the

work site.  Waste management options would be exercised in accordance with the hierarchy stipulated in the following table:

               

Avoidance and Minimization

Avoid and minimize waste through careful planning and design works.

Reuse

Reuse construction waste such as excavated material, used wooden plants and ferric materials.

Recovery and Recycle

Undertake on-site or off-site waste recycling

Treatment and Disposal

Properly treat and dispose of waste in accordance with legislative requirements, guidelines and good practices.

Table 2: Hierarchy of Waste Management

 

3.1.2        In the context of waste reduction, environmentally responsible purchasing would involve the introduction of practices that discourage unnecessary purchases and encourage the purchase of products with reduced packaging, increased durability and with high recycled content.  For example, recycled paper, steel and other raw construction materials.

 

3.1.3        Waste minimization is best achieved through careful planning, design and supervision. Good management practices would reduce and prevent large amount of waste generated.  Raw materials would be managed from the first instance before they are ordered and delivered to the site.  Good estimation and planning would minimize the amount of raw materials wasted.  The generation of waste would be controlled at source.

 

 

3.2           Waste Reduction

 

Specific measures will be implemented to reduce the generation of waste materials, and thus minimize the amount of waste disposal to landfills.  The measures will include:

 

Ÿ   recover all metallic waste for recycling;

Ÿ   recover all cardboard and paper packaging, and properly stockpile them in dry and covered condition to prevent cross contamination;

Ÿ   use of the materials (such as formworks and hoardings) in the construction would be calculated before purchasing in order to minimize waste generation.

Ÿ   use of metal formworks and hoardings, and they would be recycled after demolition on site as far as it can before disposal.

Ÿ   On site sorting facilities for imported material would be established in TKO Area 137.  Please refer to Appendix A for the layout plan of sorting facility on site.

 

3.3           Internal Transfer of C&D Materials / Imported Fill Materials

 

3.3.1       Internal Transfer of C&D Materials (from WA4 to Reclamation Area)

 

There is a soil heap stockpiled at WA4 works area to be reused for reclamation filling.  The soil heap would be checked by survey about the volume of quantities and submitted to the Engineer for their record.  Upon filling, we will use barge for the transportation of the fill and each barge would be measured of the quantities of fill by trip ticket system for monitoring of record.  The total barges used for the stockpiled soil would be checked against the survey record for monitoring of the transfer of the soil heap.

 

3.3.2         Imported Fill Materials

 

For imported fill materials, CHEC will seek the Engineer’s Representative approval prior to acceptance of such materials from other site(s).  To ensure that the fill materials are imported from the approved site(s) and to avoid illegal disposal of such materials, specific recording and monitoring system will be established for each case and the system will be submitted to the Engineer’s Representative for approval. 

 

For control of the percentage of fine content in filling material, laboratory test for sample taken would be conducted for sieve analysis test by Government Laboratory to confirm compliance.  The fine content test would be conducted earlier at the source site to confirm its compliance with the Contract requirement and the test results would be  provided for verification by the Engineer Representative and the IEC before the fill materials are allowed to ship to our site for filling. 

 

The target fine content of the sand fill in the WMP shall not exceed 5% when finally placed in the Works.  For the fine content of the public fill material the target maximum level would be below 25%, which is to be controlled by prior testing at the source site and the test result would be verified by Engineer Representative and IEC before transporting to the site for filling.

 

3.3.3         Design, Construction and Operation of Sorting Facilities and Barge Points at TKO Area 137

 

According to our strategic planning, the delivery of public fill for earthwork above +2.5mPD will be commenced in Month11. The average required daily handling rate of public fill will be around 17,5000 m3 of Type A, Type B and surcharge fill majorly occurring in Month 11 to Month 30. The proposed sorting facilities together with barging points facilities have been designed to meet this peak production. In addition, CHEC will secure sufficient marine resources for handling the peak of consumption of public fill in HKBCF site.

 

3.3.4                Use of Public Fill from Fill Banks and Projects of MTRCL as Source of Filling Material

 

The public fill material will be collected from designated barging points as indicated in working drawing No: 211036/SL/1005 attached in Appendix G.  CHEC will utilize our barges to collect the public fill material from those barging points as much as possible in order to maximize the usage of public fill material for this reclamation project. The features of public fill sorting plant layout plan & sorting facility design are presented in Appendix A.

 

Owing to the available sorting facilities, the supply quantities of public fill in TKO Area 137 will be constant and sorted to the most suitable for the reclamation purpose. However, the daily output capacity of the sorting facilities are around 45,000 tonne (Equivalent to  25,000 m3) which is only provide approximately 40% of public fill for the earthworks above +2.5mPD during the peak supply month. Therefore, the remaining 60% of public fill will be collected from other barging points such as TM38, WA4 and MTRC which become the major sources of the public fill material. In fact, the quantities of public fill collection in these barging points may be fluctuated depending on the output rate of the barging point operators and the relevant project progress. In order to overcome the risk of fluctuation, we will firstly deploy our vessels as much as possible to collect the public fill available from these barging points and the remaining quantities will be collected from TKO Area 137. Moreover, CHEC will closely coordinate with the contractors of the barging points regarding the schedule of barges for collecting public fill and the site conditions of the loading facilities to ensure smooth progress of loading and transporting public fill to the Site and that sufficient barges are provided. A trial will be conducted for collection of public fill in different barging points to ensure the navigation and mooring condition such that suitable barges will be provided for smooth logistic operation.

 

3.3.5                Logistics Relating to Collection, Sorting, Transportation and Stockpiling of Public Fill for filling works above +2.5mPD

 

In this project, the major usage of public fill material will be Type B and surcharge fill for the earthworks above +2.5mPD of which the total handling capacity is approximately 10.3 Million m3 in taking into account the settlement. In order to achieve the timely completion and maximization for usage of public fill material, an adequate logistic planning is crucial to handle such huge amount of filling material. CHEC will deploy both marine and land-based plant by using the most effective and efficient ways for collection, sorting, transportation and stockpiling of public fill for filling works above +2.5mPD so as to reach the goal of the project. According to our planning, the target delivery schedule for handling of public fill relating to below and above +2.5mPD will range from Month 11 to 30 and the average required daily filling rate of public fill is 17,500 m3 from Month 11 to Month 30. The overall quantities of public fill to be collected and handled for the earthworks below and above +2.5mPD is tabulated below:

Delivery Programme for Collection, Sorting and Transportation of Public Fill Material

The delivery arrangement of public fill material including the operation of sorting facilities and the collection, sorting, transportation and stockpile for earthworks above+2.5mPD will be same as the underwater filling works up to +2.5mPD except for unloading and placing filling works. In order to achieve the delivery programme as aforesaid above, CHEC will deploy 19 nos. material barges with the total delivery capacity over 43,280m3 per day which enable to collect the scheduled maximum daily output rate at 17,500m3 from different barging points and transport to site for earthworks above+2.5mPD. The daily delivery capacity of our planned fleet is scheduled in the table below.

In the above table, the overall logistic arrangements for barges have sufficient flexibility and taking into consideration with appropriate contingency plan and general holiday. The plant will be reviewed from time to time to suit the actual site condition and also extra plant will be deployed on site when required. In considering the combination effects for delivery of public fill material both underwater fill below+2.5mPD and earthworks above+2.5mPD, the maximum scheduled daily filling rate will require 17,500 m3 where filling for Portion C1b, E1 & E2 are concurrently executed. Our deployment of barge fleets will be well sufficient to fulfill such daily requirements.

 

Details of the filling rate, please refers to the Appendix B.

 

 

4    WASTE MANAGEMENT PROCEDURE

 

The quantities of disposal C&D materials will be recorded under the barcode trip ticket system by using the “C&D Material Disposal Delivery Form”.  In addition, the filled “CHIT” will also be presented to the landfill site as part of the system for the disposal charging scheme which had already been officially effective in January 2006.  Waste transaction records could be obtained either in the waste disposal facilities right after the transaction or retrieved from the EPD bill statement each month.

Ÿ   At least one week’s notice, including contractors name and contact details etc, will be submitted to the EPD before starting to deliver the C&D waste to the landfills.  EPD will be informed of any subsequent change to the disposal programme.

 

4.2  Procedures of the Trip Ticket System (Land Based)

 

China Harbour Engineering Co., Ltd. (CHEC) will implement a Trip Ticket System (TTS) to track the disposal of C&D materials.  Under the TTS, each truck carrying C&D materials leaving the Site for a disposal ground will bear a duly completed and stamped Disposal Delivery Form (DDF) issued by the Engineer’s Representative.  The C&D materials must be disposed of at the disposal grounds as stipulated in the DDF.

 

The Trip Ticket System will be executed according to the following procedures:

 

Ÿ   The Superintendents / Senior Foremen / Foremen will arrange the C&D waste to be sorted on site.  He will also check the total actual amount of cumulated C&D waste after the completion of the particular works in the working area.

Ÿ   If the sorted C&D waste is less than 1/3 of truckload, then the C&D waste will be transferred to the temporary holding area in CHEC’s Works Area for temporary stockpiling.  The C&D waste will be sorted and stored separately into different storage areas.

Ÿ   Non-inert C&D waste will be stored in storage tanks properly covered with tarpaulin sheeting in the temporary holding area.  Inert C&D materials will be stored on the ground properly covered with tarpaulin sheeting in the temporary holding area.  Larvicidal oil or larvicide will be applied onto the stored C&D waste, if necessary.

Ÿ   For every 7 days or one truckload collected, the stored non-inert C&D waste in the temporary holding area will be transferred to the designated landfills after the DDF has been received from the Engineer’s Representative.

Ÿ   For every 14 days or one truckload collected, the stored inert C&D waste in the temporary holding area will be transferred to the designated fill banks after the DDF has been received from the Engineer’s Representative.

Ÿ   If the sorted C&D waste is more than 1/3 of truckload, then the Foreman will arrange disposal of the C&D waste to designated fill banks / landfills after the Disposal Delivery Form (DDF) has been received from the Engineer’s Representative.

Ÿ   For each truckload of C&D materials leaving the working area / temporary holding area to the designated fill banks / landfills, the truck driver must bear a duly completed, signed and stamped Disposal Delivery Form (DDF) and a duly signed CHIT.

Ÿ   The truck will proceed to the disposal ground as stipulated in the DDF.  The truck driver will present the DDF and the CHIT to the reception facility operator.  If the C&D waste accords with the acceptance criteria, disposal of the C&D waste will be permitted and the facility operator will give the truck driver a transaction receipt and stamp the DDF.

Ÿ   The truck driver will present the CHIT at the in-weightbridge officially.  If the vehicle load is accepted, the CHIT is deemed to be used and the in-weight would be recorded on the “Transaction Record Slip”.

Ÿ   If the truck driver was instructed by the reception facility operator to go to the sorting facility.  The driver will need return back to the site and report to the Superintendent / Senior Foreman / Foremen.  No driver is allowed to go to sorting facility without Superintendent / Senior Foreman / Foremen permission or instruction.

Ÿ   The truck driver will then return the transaction receipt and the stamped DDF to CHEC as soon as possible.  All DDFs are to be return to the Environmental Officer.

Ÿ   CHEC will maintain a daily record disposal of C&D materials from the Site including details of the C&D waste, the truck number, departure time, etc, and should check against the Engineer’s Representative records as soon as possible and notify the Engineer’s Representative in case any discrepancy is noted.

Ÿ   A daily record of disposal of C&D materials from the Site will be maintained, the record includes the details of the C&D materials, the truck number, departure time, etc., using the Daily Record Summary (DRS).

Ÿ   The duly completed Part 1 of the DRS would be submitted promptly to the Engineer’s Representative by 1:00pm of the working day following the date of disposal.

Ÿ   For disposal at government disposal facilities, CHEC will check the information recorded in the DRS against the disposal records in CEDD’s website (http:www.cedd.gov.hk/eng/services/trip ticket/index.html) or EPD’s website (http://www.epd.gov.hk/epd/misc/cdm/trip.htm) and complete Part 2 of the DRS for submission to the Engineer’s Representative within 3 working days after the day of disposal, or a later day if the information in CEDD’s / EPD’s website is not yet available within 3 working days.

Ÿ   Where an irregularity is observed or where requested by the Engineer’s Representative under special circumstances (e.g. a DDF has been issued but there is no disposal record at the designated disposal facilities), CHEC will submit to the Engineer’s Representative within 5 working days after the recorded date of disposal the supporting evidence such as duly stamped DDF and/or the transaction receipt (where relevant) to confirm proper completion of the delivery trips in question, or within 2 working days after the Engineer’s Representative has requested for such evidence, whichever is later.  A fax copy of the DDF and transaction receipt is acceptable, unless otherwise directed by the Engineer.  CHEC will maintain all records on the DDF for at least one year or other period as may be directed by the Engineer’s Representative.

 

4.3  Procedures of the Trip Ticket System (Marine Based)

 

The characteristic of this Project is to import public fill and sand by barges onto the site for filling.  Land route is not accessible to the reclamation site for filling works.  The control of barges coming to the site for filling works will be controlled by the implementation of trip ticket system.

 

The public fill would be from the source sites of Fill Bank 137 at Tseung Kwan O managed by CEDD and the MTRC projects currently under construction.  A trip ticket system will be agreed with the ER, CEDD and MTRC for the filling record such as the date and time of the barge leaving the site and the quantities of fill checked and agreed by ER and CEDD/MTRC for endorsing the tickets.  The copies of tickets would be issued to the Engineer daily for their record and a summary of the record would be issued to the Engineer monthly for checking and verification.

 

The public fill at source site must be tested to confirm compliance with the Contract Specifications such as the fine contents of the public fill etc. Before they are allowed to leave the source site to our work site for filling work.  Test sample of public fill and sand specimen at the source site must be submitted to the Engineer for record.

 

4.4           Measures to be implemented during transportation of wastes to avoid leakage of wastes on public areas

 

Ÿ   All of the dump trucks used would be equipped with mechanical covers in which maintained in a good condition.

Ÿ   In order to minimize the leaking of material from the dump trucks, no material should be stored higher than the trail board.

Ÿ   Deposited silt and wastes on all dump trucks’ wheels and bodies should be properly washed off by wheel washing facilities before leaving the constructions sites.

Ÿ   CHEC will provide wheel washing facilities on site at the site entrance.

 

4.5           Disposal of C&D Materials to Alternative Disposal Ground(s)

 

Where CHEC has identified a project that can be an alternative disposal ground, CHEC will provide a detailed description of the alternative disposal ground, including location, lot number (where appropriate) and location plan(s) to the Engineer to request for his written approval.

 

Where the alternative disposal ground is a private construction project, CHEC will submit a letter from the Authorized Person of the development (as defined under the Building Ordinance) to confirm that:

 

Ÿ   the C&D materials for use in the development is acceptable;

Ÿ   the use of land so formed by the C&D materials is in conformity with the statutory town plan / lease conditions;

Ÿ   the Engineer’s Representative are allowed to enter the alternative ground to conduct inspection where necessary; and

Ÿ   the estimated quantity and type of C&D materials to be used in the construction works and the approximate delivery programme, together with the name, post and specimen signature of the competent person to sign the DDF / internal trip ticket stipulated in G.S. Clause 25.25(5)(a)(ii).

 

Where the alternative disposal ground is a private land but not a construction site, CHEC will submit a letter from the relevant authorities, such as the Lands Department and Planning Department, to confirm that the suitability of the alternative disposal ground in receiving the proposed amount of C&D materials for use, and a written consent from the landowner.

 

Where the alternative disposal ground is a government project, CHEC will submit written consent from the project office of the alternative disposal ground to use the C&D materials generated from the Site, and to confirm the estimated quantity and type of C&D materials required and the approximate delivery programme.

 

A system for transmitting disposal records from the alternative disposal ground will be submitted to the Engineer’s Representative for approval before disposal to the alternative ground starts.

 

4.6           Chemical Waste / Hazardous Waste Handling and Disposal

 

4.6.1                Chemical Waste Handling and Disposal

 

Chemical waste that is produced, as defined by Schedule 1 of the Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation, will be handled in accordance with the Code of Practice on the Packaging, Labelling and Storage of Chemical Wastes as follows:

 

Packaging

Chemical waste will be packed and held in containers of suitable design and construction so as to prevent leakage, spillage or escape of the contents under normal conditions of handling, storage and transport.

Containers used for the storage of chemical wastes will:

·       Be suitable for the substance they are holding, resistant to corrosion, maintained in a good condition, and securely closed;

·       Have a capacity of less than 450 litres unless the specifications have been approved by the EPD; and

·       Display a label in English and Chinese in accordance with instructions prescribed in Schedule 2 of the Regulations.

 

Labelling

Every container of chemical waste will bear an appropriate label which will contain the particulars details.  The waste producer will ensure that the information contained on the label is accurate and sufficient so as to enable proper and safe handling, storage and transport of the chemical waste. 

 

Storage

The storage area will be specially constructed and bunded, and located close to the source of waste generation.

The storage area for chemical wastes will:

·       Be clearly labelled and used solely for the storage of chemical waste;

·       Be enclosed on at least 3 sides;

·       Have an impermeable floor and bunding of sufficient capacity to accommodate 110% of the volume of the largest container or 20% of the total volume of waste stored in that area, whichever is the greatest;

·       Have adequate ventilation;

·       Be covered to prevent rainfall entering (water collected with the bund must be tested and disposed of as chemical waste); and

·       Be arranged so that incompatible materials are adequately separated.

Before reaching 80% capacity of the storage container, licensed waste collectors will be employed to remove the chemical waste.

 

Transportation and Disposal

After the chemical wastes have been packed, labelled, and stored, the chemical wastes will be transported by licensed waste collectors and disposed of at Chemical Waste Treatment Facility in Tsing Yi or other approved facilities.

 

4.7           General Refuse

 

4.7.1        Handling the general refuse

Measures to be implemented to encourage waste avoidance / minimization include:

 

Ÿ   Reducing the number of photos copies to a minimum and by copying on both sides of paper for internal documents and external documents where appropriate;

Ÿ   Preventing over-ordering of office equipment and consumables;

Ÿ   Procuring green office equipment and consumables in terms of energy efficiency, recycled content and durability, etc;

Ÿ   Deploying sufficient recycle bins in site offices to facilitate collection of recyclables including wasted aluminum cans, plastics bottles and papers;

Ÿ   Deploying sufficient collection bins with cover at convenient locations at site to facilitate collection of non-recyclable for disposal at landfills;

Ÿ   General refuse generated from working vessels and barges can dispose the waste into temporary waste collection point.

Ÿ   Working vessels for import fill or delivery should be handled by themselves.

Ÿ   There will be waste receptacle on the working vessels for collection.  In the event that some refuse are found on the sea, we will collect the refuse by worker on a regular daily basis.

 

4.8           Handling of Construction Runoff and Sewage

 

During the construction stage, peripheral temporary surface channels will be constructed to collect surface runoff in the construction area for desilting before discharging into the adjacent waters. The measures would apply to office areas of WA2, WA3 and WA4 only.

 

The temporary drainage system during the construction phase will be formulated by the CHEC to match works and construction programme.

 

For reclamation area there will be no drainage system as the storm water is contained by the erected seawall which is 1m higher than the formation level of +5.5mPD.  Storm water will be soaked into the new reclaimed soil ground.

 

For office area of WA2, WA3 and WA4, the locations of which are shown in Appendix I, storm water is collected by surface channel and catchpit and further treated by settlement tank before discharge into existing drainage system nearby.  For sewage collection will be by holding tank to be pumped out at regular interval for disposal. Handling of sewage in terms sewage generated by human would be provided adequate chemical toilets for collection.

 

Sufficient numbers of chemical toilets for workers and frontier workforces were placed on works area other than site offices such as WA2, WA3 and WA4.

 

4.9           Estimate Quantities of C&D Material/Waste

The following types of waste would be generated from the works areas of WA2, WA3, WA4 and reclamation site.

 

l   Site clearance waste from works areas WA2, WA3 and WA4.

l   Excavated material from box culvert construction to be re-deposited into

reclamation area.

l   Chemical waste from maintenance of plant and equipment

l   General refuse form the workforce on site

l   Soil heap stored at WA4 to be reused in reclamation area

l   General refuse form the workforce on site

l   Import sand for reclamation works.

l   Import public fill for reclamation works

l   Removal of surcharge of public fill and return to Fill Bank 137 at Tseung Kwan O )

The disposal of imported sorted public fill of 1,565,891 cu.m to Fill Bank 137 at Tseung Kwan O is due to the surcharge material which will be trimmed down from +11.5mPD to +5.5mPD level after the surcharge period is over as stated in the Contract Specifications. The soil is disposed off site via marine access using barges.  Trip ticket system is used and signed by ER/CEDD for endorsement of the ticket for proper control.

 

We assume this project to have 500 site personnel at peak level and each person consumes a waste of 5L per day.  For a period of 4 years the waste would be 3,650 cu.m total.

 

CHEC will either dispose the dredged sediment generated sediment from the Project within the steel cellular structures or to the re-deposition area on site (if the associated VEP application is permitted). Hence, no dredged sediment would be disposal off-site and no designated marine disposal ground being approved by government.

 

In order to distinguish the waste generated from site, the waste is sorted into 3 colour receptacles would be provided on site at site areas WA2 and WA4. Control measures would be devised to ensure that the recyclable materials are delivered to a proper recycling outlet for processing, and to avoid such materials being considered as C&D materials for the purposes of the Contract. 

 

All of the recyclable material would be collected by registered contractors.

 

Details of these contractors were listed in the website of EPD as waste collectors and recyclers, the information can be search via the hyperlinks as http://www.epd.gov.hk/epd/english/environmentinhk/waste/guide_ref/guide_ref_dwc.html

 

 

5    DISPOSAL PROGRAMME

 

The relevant licensing legislation and licensing/control requirement is listed in Section 1 above.

 

There will be both inert C&D materials (comprising soil, broken rock and concrete, etc) and non-inert C&D materials generated under Contract No. HY/2010/02. With reference to the clause 25.25 of PS, the designated disposal grounds for inert and non-inert C&D materials are listed as follows:-

 

Ÿ             Inert C&D Materials:

Tuen Mun Area 38 Fill Bank and Tseung Kwan O 137 or other disposal outlets as directed by the Engineer

 

Ÿ             Non-inert C&D Materials:

        West New Territories Landfill (WENT) or Outlying Island Transfer Facilities.

 

Monthly Summary for C&D material disposal off the Site will be provided to indicate the estimate quantities, types of C&D materials and corresponding disposal ground in Waste Flow Table (WFT).

 

Disposal locations for inert C&D materials would be Tuen Mun Area 38 or Tseung Kwan O Area 137. The non-inert C&D materials would be disposed to WENT landfill or Outlying Island Transfer Facilities.

 

For this contract, there is no marine disposal requirement outside reclamation area. No off-site designated marine disposal ground.

 

As the reclamation site is by marine access only, there will not be installed wheel washing bay for the reclaimed land.  Wheel washing facilities would be installed at works areas WA2, WA3 and WA4 as these areas are land access for vehicles.  The wheel washing facilities would be cleaned at least twice daily.

 

 

6     NOTIFICATION TO TRUCK DRIVERS

 

CHEC will write to all truck drivers whom he or his sub-contractor(s) has engaged for removal of C&D materials from the Site and draw their attention to the following particular points:

 

Ÿ   Each truck carrying C&D materials leaving the Site for a disposal ground must bear a duly completed and stamped DDF, irrespective of the location and nature of the disposal ground;

Ÿ   The C&D materials must be disposed of at the disposal ground as stipulated in the DDF; and

Ÿ   What constitute and improper disposal and that the Public Fill Committee (PFC) will consider revoking the Dumping Licence from the holder of the offending trucks.

Ÿ   Truck drivers must bear a valid Dumping Licence that he can apply from the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD)

 

The Flow Chart of the TTS and the notification to truck drivers and the receipt form is attached in Appendix C and D respectively.

 

 

7    WASTE MANAGEMENT RECORDS

 

The Construction and Demolition Material Disposal Delivery Form (DDF) will be used for each and every vehicular trip transporting construction and demolition (C&D) material off site.

 

Prior to the vehicle leaving the site, the Engineer’s Representative will insert the date, time of departure, vehicle licence plate number, designated public filling facility / landfill, and other information as required, and stamp the form.  The Engineer’s Representative will then retain the first strip of the form and pass the rest to CHEC’s Representative.  The form will be carried on board the vehicle at all times throughout the vehicular trip.

 

A comprehensive register of the DDF issued will be maintained and available for inspection by the Engineer’s Representative upon request.  The following records will be kept for monitoring of the DDF issued:-

 

Daily Record Summary (DRS) and the Waste Flow Table (WFT) should be completed and submitted to the Engineer’s Representative for record. A sample of DRS and WFT, please refer to Appendix E and F respectively.

 

Waste Flow Table – Monthly

Record of the quantities of C&D materials generated each month will be maintained using the monthly summary Waste flow Table (WFT). CHEC will complete and submit the monthly summary WFT to the Engineer by not later than the 15th day of each month follows the reporting month, or if it is a General Holiday, the day following the General Holiday, or a later date as agreed by the Engineer.

 

Waste Flow Table – Yearly

The estimated quantities of C&D materials to be generated each year from the site will be summarised using the yearly summary WFT. The WFT will be updated on a half-yearly basis and submit to the Project Proponent by not later than 1st of June and December of each year, or if it is a General Holiday, the day following the General Holiday, throughout the construction period in order to account for the revised works programme and latest outturn on the quantities of C&D materials generated from the site.

 

These summaries shall also be made available to ETL and IEC/ENPO

 

Specific trip ticket and records for internal transfer of C&D materials and imported fill materials will also be kept for monitoring whatever necessary.

 

For recyclable materials, CHEC’s Representative will record the quantities of all the recyclable materials before removal off the Site by the recycling contractors, and include the details in the WFT for submission to the Engineer’s Representative.

 

In order to ensure proper disposal of C&D materials, enhancement measures to further improve the TTS recording system, a video recording system shall be installed and disposal shall be checked against survey record. Such video recording system used to monitor the vehicular exit / entrance of the site.

Construction and Demolition Material

 

The following mitigation measures should be implemented in handling the waste:

·    Maintain temporary stockpiles and reuse excavated fill material for backfilling and reinstatement;

·    Carry out on-site sorting;

·    Make provisions in the Contract documents to allow and promote the use of recycled aggregates where appropriate;

·    Adopt ‘Selective Demolition’ technique to demolish the existing structures and facilities with a view to recovering broken concrete effectively for recycling purpose, where possible;

·    Implement a trip-ticket system for each works contract to ensure that the disposal of C&D materials are properly documented and verified;

·    Implement an enhanced Waste Management Plan similar to ETWBTC (Works) No. 19/2005 – “Environmental Management on Construction Sites” to encourage on-site sorting of C&D materials and to minimize their generation during the course of construction;

·    In addition, disposal of the C&D materials onto any sensitive locations such as agricultural lands, etc. should be avoided. The Contractor shall propose the final disposal sites to the Project Proponent and get its approval before implementation; and

·    The     surplus     surcharge     should     be transferred to a fill bank.

C&D Waste

 

·          Standard formwork or pre-fabrication should be used as far as practicable in order to minimise the arising of C&D materials. The use of more durable formwork or plastic facing for the construction works should be considered. Use of wooden hoardings should not be used, as in other projects.        Metal hoarding and falsework should be used to enhance the possibility of recycling. The purchasing of construction materials will be carefully planned in order to avoid over ordering and wastage.

·          The Contractor should recycle as much of the C&D materials as possible on-site. Public fill and C&D waste should be segregated and stored in different containers or skips to enhance reuse or recycling of materials and their proper disposal.       Where practicable, concrete and masonry can be crushed and used as fill. Steel reinforcement bar can be used by scrap steel mills. Different areas of the sites should be considered for such segregation and storage.

Chemical Waste

·          Chemical waste that is produced, as defined by Schedule 1 of the Waste Disposal (Chemical Waste) (General) Regulation, should be handled in accordance with the Code of Practice on the Packaging, Labelling and Storage of Chemical Wastes.

·          Containers used for the storage of chemical wastes should be suitable for the substance they are holding, resistant to corrosion, maintained in a good condition, and securely closed; have a capacity of less than 450 liters unless the specification has been approved by the EPD; and display a label in English and Chinese in accordance with instructions prescribed in Schedule 2 of the regulation.

·          The storage area for chemical wastes should be clearly labelled and used solely for the storage of chemical waste; enclosed on at least 3 sides; have an impermeable floor and bunding of sufficient capacity to accommodate 110% of the volume of the largest container or 20 % of the total volume of waste stored in that area, whichever is the greatest; have adequate ventilation; covered to prevent rainfall entering; and arranged so that incompatible materials are adequately separated.

·          Disposal of chemical waste should be via a licensed waste collector; be to a facility licensed to receive chemical waste, such as the Chemical Waste Treatment Centre which also offers a chemical waste collection service and can supply the necessary storage containers; or be to a reuser of the waste, under approval from the EPD.

Control the chemical waste

General Refuse

 

·          The site and surroundings shall be kept tidy and litter free. General refuse generated on-site should be stored in enclosed bins or compaction units separately from construction and chemical wastes.

·           A reputable waste collector should be employed by the Contractor to remove general refuse from the site, separately from construction and chemical wastes, on a daily basis to minimize odour, pest and litter impacts. Burning of refuse on construction sites is prohibited by law.

·           Aluminium cans are often recovered from the waste stream by individual collectors if they are segregated and made easily accessible. Separate labelled bins for their deposit should be provided if feasible.

·          Office wastes can be reduced through the recycling of paper if volumes are large enough to warrant collection. Participation in a local collection scheme should be considered by the Contractor. In addition, waste separation facilities for paper, aluminum cans, plastic bottles etc., should be provided.

·          Training should be provided to workers about the concepts of site cleanliness and appropriate waste management procedure, including reduction, reuse and recycling of wastes.

·          Sufficient   dustbins   shall   be provided for storage of waste as required under the Public Cleansing and Prevention of Nuisances By-laws.  In addition, general refuse shall be cleared daily and shall be disposed of to the nearest licensed landfill or refuse transfer station.   

·          All waste containers shall be in a secure area on hardstanding.
