Case Study:

Environmental Issues

Graeme Quar advised on the terms of a contract for Inert Recycling Limited, based in Eastleigh, to manage a landfill and recycling site at Eversley in Hampshire on behalf of CEMEX, a global leader in the building materials industry.

Under the three-year contract, Inert is recycling demolition and construction waste into aggregates and materials for road-building and other projects. We advised on a range of complex environmental and waste management matters, including Waste Acceptance Procedures, planning consent as well as dealing with the contract itself.

Inert Recycling owner Keith Larner says: "We were a local company dealing with a global conglomerate. But Graeme's expertise in environmental law, and his robust negotiation, gave us the credibility we needed to secure the best possible contract. We're also confident that we have the procedures in place to comply with relevant legislation."
