Bevan Brittan’s market leading Waste and Resource Management team have advised on the completion of a hat trick of UK wide Waste, Recycling, and Environmental services projects. The three projects have a combined value of around £400 million:

  • Norfolk Waste and Environmental Services Project – a £230 million joint waste collection, recycling and street cleansing contract between Serco and 3 local authorities (Breckland Council, North Norfolk District Council and King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council). 
  • Buckinghamshire Waste and Environmental Services Project - a 10 year contract joint waste collection, recycling and street cleansing contract between Veolia and 3 local authorities (Chiltern District Council, Wycombe District Council and South Bucks District Council).
  • Allerdale Waste Services Limited – a new waste and recycling company created by Allerdale Borough Council for the dedicated delivery of waste management and recycling services in Cumbria. The project includes a 7 year contract between the Council and Allerdale Waste Services.

Our dedicated Waste and Resource Management team advised on contract, commercial and regulatory matters for over 2 years and which included sector specialists Phil Roberts (Associate), Thomas Graham (Solicitor) and Rory Budworth (Solicitor), as well as Nathan Bradberry (Partner), Olivia Blessington (Senior Associate) and Maxim Laithwaite (Solicitor). A broader multi-disciplinary team from Bevan Brittan advised on procurement, corporate, property, employment, pension and litigation issues.

Nadeem Arshad, lead Partner on all three projects and Head of Energy and Resource Management at Bevan Brittan commented: “It’s brilliant to have advised our clients on all these projects which will lead to improved recycling performance in each locality and support the climate emergency agenda.

The projects demonstrate the exceptional depth of our waste and resource management knowledge and expertise. We helped our clients deal with some complex commercial and legal issues across the 3 projects, with completion of the deals made even more challenging due the unprecedented circumstances created by COVID-19.”    

Client feedback from the projects included:

The project was delivered on time and to an excellent quality with the contract being signed and sealed in record time … It is a pleasure to work with colleagues at BB expertly led by Phil Roberts, together with support from Laura Brealey and Trevor Watt, all of whom bring a wealth of expertise and experience”.
