Waste Management

In addition to working with numerous chemicals clients, Lyn Dario, who heads our environmental and regulatory practice, also has substantial experience in waste law.

All businesses generate waste, and Lyn has acted for a wide range of clients in the manufacturing sector, advising them on compliance/regulatory investigations. However, she has developed particular expertise in advising waste management businesses. 

Examples of Lyn’s work include:

  • Acting for a leading waste management company on a number of safety, health and environmental incidents at its facilities, including landfills and waste transfer stations/MRFs, and on the transport of waste/hazardous substances;
  • Acting for a composting business in connection with an investigation/prosecution by the Environment Agency;
  • Successfully defending an international waste company in connection with a fatality of one of its employees on a municipal waste collection contract;
  • Advising waste and manufacturing companies on compliance with their environmental permits, and running appeals against permit conditions/refusal to vary;
  • Assisting companies in developing anaerobic digestion facilities, including advising on the planning and environmental permitting implications;
  • Advising companies on the application of legislation relating to by-products and the carriage of goods such as animal by-products.
