The Government has repealed the Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP) Regulations 2008 were revoked on 1 December 2013 with effect from 1 October 2013. The regulations applied to England only.

The Government has stressed that SWMPs and guidance will still be available for those who find them useful, although it argues that the landfill tax remains the most effective way to keep waste out of landfill.
