The environmental benefits from composting, and regulatory drivers are forcing a change in the waste management industry. As a result there are opportunities for both new waste management facilities, and the expansion of existing composting operations, to assist in the growth of this recycling sector. Ceri Environmental Consulting Ltd has many years of experience in the providing assistance to the composting industry. The company has clients who compost as part of their farm activities to provide fertiliser and soil conditioner for organic food production, others who provide a service for local authorities' green waste collection services, and others who have expanded their existing waste operations to allow the importation of green waste for composting. Ceri Environmental Consulting Ltd has provided planning and waste licensing services for clients wishing to establish composting activities. Unfortunately composting proposals often result in complaints and objections. The company has tackled such controversial issues for clients and has provided environmental risk assessments and bioaerosol risk assessments. It has also liased with local authorities, the Environment Agency and the State Veterinary Service to enable clients to develop their business. Ceri Environmental Consulting Ltd can assist with procedures, training and monitoring required to achieve PAS 100 accreditation and can also provide mentoring to achieve the relevant COTC award for composting operations.
