- Vehicle Pollution – The objective should always be to minimise number and use of vehicles.
- Waste Disposal – Always use authorised waste disposal centre. Only dispose of waste that cannot be sensibly recycled.
- Recycling – Where feasible recycle waste. The main area of relevance is in the recycling of waste paper. All confidential documents should be shredded prior to collection.

To this end wherever possible work requiring the use of drills and alike should be performed away from other individuals not involved in the works or at times when they are not present.
- Dust Protection – When work necessitates the creation of dust then where practical sheeting should be used to protect the surrounding areas and dust should be cleared as soon as is practical following the work.
