SLR Presenting on the Landfill Ban in Scotland

Derek Rooney, Technical Director (Waste & Resource Management) with SLR, will be presenting at a seminar focussed on the 2021 landfill ban in Scotland. Derek will be joined by colleagues from DWF, PwC and Willis Towers Watson, where they will consider the implications of the landfill ban for local authorities in Scotland.

As the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 will be imposing the ban on the landfill of biodegradable municipal waste beginning in January 2021, this seminar has been constructed to prepare those Local Authorities in Scotland who are yet to procure a long term waste solution ahead of the ban.
The session, which will be held in Edinburgh on the 27th of April, will provide an overview of:

•         the legal requirements and timetable underpinning the landfill ban
•         the availability of alternatives to landfill in Scotland and beyond
•         funding and procurement routes for sourcing alternatives to landfill
•         insight from North Lanarkshire Council into the Clyde Valley Residual Waste Project
