Waste Management

Society has a pressing need to move towards a more sustainable, efficient use of natural resources. Better product design, waste prevention, improved management, re-use and recovery of value from our resource and waste streams are part of the growing circular economy.

Our waste sector specialists offer multi-disciplinary advice with a commercial focus. We work closely with our clients, adding value at every stage of a project lifecycle, from its initial concept through design, consenting, construction, finance and operation.

We are award winning innovators in waste management consultancy, covering characterisation and collection, technical adviser, planning and permitting advice. Our clients benefit from the knowledge, reputational, commercial, compliance and programme certainty that we offer in the waste sector.

We research and collect primary data on waste and resources through audits, sampling and review of processes and policies. This data is analysed to identify opportunities to optimise resource use, ensure legislative compliance, realise financial savings and provide clients with clear evidence based recommendations for their materials efficiency plans.
