  • A specific solution tailored to your needs
  • Identify your requirements and develop a strategy
  • Meet both your business and environmental targets
  • Produce less waste and identify opportunities for recycling and re-using

EMS’s experienced consultants can support you in the identification of your requirements, and help you to develop and implement a thorough strategy.

Our expert service includes:

  • An assessment of the estimated volumes and types of waste produced by the development. E.g. general waste, recyclable waste, industrial waste.
  • Recommendations regarding how different types of waste will be dealt with. E.g. number of bins, the need for a licensed waste carrier.
  • The development of a full waste strategy. E.g. a system of processes, necessary storage and collection points, contractor actions and responsibilities.
  • Recommendations for the production of less waste, an increase in the proportion of waste that is re-used or recycled, and the use of methods of collection, treatment and disposal of waste which are more beneficial to the environment.
  • Liaison with the local authority to ensure the minimum standards for planners, architects, developers and property managers to assist in implementing systems for the storage and collection of refuse, and for recycling facilities in domestic and commercial properties.
  • Management of the overall planning application process.

Your consultant will deliver the service to the highest standards and ensure that your waste management strategy is developed in accordance with agreed timeframes. EMS has detailed and current knowledge of applicable and pending environmental legislation, and can offer a specific solution that is tailored to the needs of your business and its developed environmental strategies.
