Waste Management Licence

Environmental Permits for Waste Management

We offer environmental solutions throughout the UK. Many old waste management licences were granted many years ago and are gradually being replaced therefore, by new style environmental permits. Consequently, new style environmental permits are therefore easier to read and understand where compliance is required. We provide all of the surveys required to support your application.

Paul Downing & Associates can help with new permit applications too. If you operate a transfer station, food factory, manufacturing site, waste site or landfill operation then we will help you upgrade to an environmental permit. You will need to establish a contaminated land baselines and conduct a risk assessment in order to support the application. Our consultants can provide all of these services plus the numerous other documents and procedures required. We will determine what permit you require.

Environmental Permits for Waste Companies

Paul Downing & Associates works with waste management companies, metal recyclers and ELV (end of life vehicles), facilities helping them upgrade their waste management licence to environmental permits. We therefore, liaise with the Environment Agency and conduct surveys to complete the variation or application on your behalf.

If your waste operation is growing and you need to add more Waste Codes (EWC’s) or increase the volumes allowed by your permit therefore, our experts can help. We have a good track record of providing environmental solutions to waste management companies. Contact us for an initial discussion on how we can help with your application. We will help you scope the application and determine what permit you need.

After several failed attempts trying to deal with the EA ourselves, we eventually employed Paul to complete our ELV permit transfer from a previous site owner. His consultancy service was professional and resulted in the Environment Agency completing a successful transfer of ownership from the previous owner to us.
