We are market leading advisers in waste collection, recycling and environmental services matters. We advise on appropriate forms of waste management contracts, deliver procurements, waste infrastructure, and advise on regulation, health & safety and environmental law.
Our legal and commercial experience is unparalleled. We have advised on over 50 environmental services projects across the UK.
Though our extensive expertise, we understand the sector. We advise clients on the management of all waste streams, including residual waste, food and green waste and recyclable materials.
The experience of Bevan Brittan's personnel in the field of waste management, collection and disposal has been invaluable, enabling the Council to avoid potential pitfalls. The advice provided has been of a high quality and has often dealt with issues that were not immediately apparent to the Council's officers
We find solutions to client needs and resolve disagreements.
Our clients include Government departments and agencies, local authorities (both Waste Disposal and Waste Collection Authorities) and leading waste management companies.
Clients we have worked with include DEFRA, Viridor, Bristol City Council, East Sussex Waste Partnership and many local authorities.
