Waste Permits and Licensing

Permits and Consents

Permits & Consents

Waste management & companies that operate landfills, manufacturing or recycling depots are constrained by the waste types they can accept (EWC’s) by conditions in their waste licences and environmental permits. We have helped several companies expand their businesses by applying for variations to their current environmental licences to include new EWC’s (European Waste Codes), which can expand the range of materials they are allowed to accept. With an ever increasing focus on waste management it is important to ensure that you have the right licences. We have worked with metal recycling companies, end of life vehicles (ELV) , hazardous waste management companies, power station, food companies and others and have a good track record of gaining the right consents and waste permits required from the Environment Agency.
