Recovery of Waste Environmental Permit

SWEL were approached by a Construction company in the southwest of England who whilst running a fairly large center of operations for their Highway, Landscaping and  Construction Business, found themselves needing to recover large amounts of inert waste. Their previous Paragraph 9 exemption was close to expiring, and so on a short timescale SWEL were engaged to bring their operation in to compliance.

Recovering inert wastes instead of sending them to landfill is very environmentally beneficial, and diverts the use of virgin, freshly won materials away from applications where waste can be used in stead.


Use of wastes to construct bunding around structures is another valid form of recovery.
