Waste Management

Drawing on our legal expertise in areas such as projects, construction, property and health and safety, our specialist waste and resource management team has helped a number of public sector organisations and private sector waste companies across areas, including waste and resource management infrastructure, buying and selling waste sites, management, treatment and disposal of waste and storage and transportation of waste. We regularly advise on licencing and permitting matters and defend criminal prosecutions relating to waste.

We cover all waste streams, from municipal and commercial through to agricultural, sewage and hazardous. We understand the challenges and complexities that arise from differing waste streams and different treatment technologies and give tailored, practical advice. Our clients range from new entrants to the waste industry to established waste companies and local authorities.

Our team is also experienced in advising on PPP and PFI initiatives and we have worked with procuring authorities, sponsors, investors and lenders on some of the most significant infrastructure projects in the UK.
