Resources are at a premium, yet we continue to send millions of tonnes of potentially useful waste to landfill sites each year.
Turning our raw materials into the products we need requires huge amounts of energy. We need to harness that energy at the end of the products life – saving our scarce landfill space, generating value from our waste, and easing the pressure on our limited resources.
Putting waste to good use
Over 50% of local authority collected waste goes to landfill sites. Waterman understands this lost opportunity. Our wealth of knowledge and breadth of understanding of the industry means we can offer a range of services – from consulting on strategic planning to state-of-the-art waste handling engineering – to efficiently handle waste and put it to profitable use.
Waterman can consult on the strategic planning of your waste management, evaluating your current practice and determining an appropriate infrastructure to meet both your present practice and your future needs. Our dedicated team can assist at each stage of development of your waste infrastructure – support at the pre-bid stage, expert planning and design, and advice through the commissioning process. With over 50 sites and 20 years of experience, Waterman has a comprehensive range of knowledge and a proven track record of delivering projects on budget and by the deadline.
We’re abreast of innovative new waste technologies and can balance the viability of any potential treatment processes with your financial and environmental needs. We work at all levels of the industry, from small-scale residential developments to national-level organisations. Key areas include household recycling centres, advanced waste treatment processing facilities, and work with private finance initiatives – with a thorough advisory service to guide you through this complex PFI process.
Expertise in planning and environmental permissions
We have had extensive involvement in gaining environmental permits and planning permissions; with former regulators on staff to help challenge overcautious advice or overoptimistic opinions, we can identify the complex material issues, understand our clients’ needs and provide efficient and cost-effective solutions that will exceed your expectations, and ensure the best future for our planet.
