Waste Management

Our increasing population means year on year we consume more products and, in essence, produce more ‘waste’ from this consumption. The waste industry is therefore set to grow in the UK, but in a way where recovering and reusing or recycling waste is the key driver behind both consumer and regulatory requirements.

Peak Associates understands the needs of the waste industry to compete in both a difficult and ever-changing economic and regulatory-driven market.

Peak Associates’ consultants have experience with a range of waste operators, waste types, regulators and regulatory guidelines, waste exemptions and permit applications. We aim to help support and guide clients through regulatory regimes. We, therefore, deliver a range of services for clients processing or utilising waste materials to operate within regulatory guidelines and environmental law.

Benefits and summary of of services provided:

  • Environmental permit applications, including options and reviews for all types of waste activities.
  • Advice on and registration of use of single or combined Waste Exemptions in place of permits – where appropriate.
  • Development of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and Fire Prevention Plans (FPPs) to support permitted facilities – as appropriate.
  • Challenging Compliance Assessment Reports (CARs) where you think a regulatory inspection has been unfair.
  • Support in negotiations or enforcement situations with regulatory inspectors – with expert witness support when required.

Waste encompasses a wide range of materials, processes, rules and regulations. Peak Associates can offer a tailored service to individuals, large or small scale waste operators to achieve their requirements, develop new avenues of business, and to be innovative with waste.

Where waste is processed, used or transferred, its handling comes under the scrutiny of the Environment Agency.

Peak Associates offers a range of services for individuals or companies to stay compliant with the Agency’s permits and/or exemptions whilst maintaining operations.

Audits are a key part of compliance, with checks made at regular intervals to identify problems before they come to the attention of the Agency and to put in place measures to prevent reoccurrence or manifestation of problems.

A metal recycling waste site in Sheffield faced significant challenges in managing their trade effluent discharge, including compliance with regulatory waste permit set by the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Water.

We undertake this type of WAC or ‘waste testing’ for a number of construction sector and waste sector clients.

In our first case the client ran a small waste transfer station as part of his diversification strategy for his farm.
