Environmental Permitting

It is illegal to operate a waste facility without the operator holding a permit. The Environmental Permitting Regulation requires that you must have an environmental permit if you operate a regulated activity in England or Wales. A full list of regulated activities is available from the Environment Agency website.

We help our clients to obtain waste environmental permits, both standard rules and bespoke. We have significant experience in preparing permit applications for all types of waste management operations including transfer stations, hazardous, non-hazardous and inert landfill sites, energy from waste facilities, recycling and composting sites, hazardous and clinical waste treatment facilities, WEEE facilities and materials recycling facilities.

Our permitting service includes preparing and submitting supporting documents, liaison with the Environment Agency throughout the application and advice on compliance with the conditions of the environmental permit once issued. If the relevant monitoring, site condition and geotechnical data is not available we can carry out the investigations and periodic monitoring so that data is accumulated and analysed prior to submitting the application. Our services include:
  • exemptions
  • standard permits
  • bespoke permits
  • transfers, surrenders and variations
  • disposal and recovery permits
  • negotiation with Environment Agency and influencing the permitting process.
