A waste disposal site is no longer a collection of caches and scattered piles debris on the ground. New technologies for sealing, drainage, energy production monitoring and other requirements and compliance of the various authorities, along with an intricate system of permits and licenses are only "part of the game" in the current environmental judicial atmosphere.
Waste sites are sites under " Surveillance" from a legal standpoint - regularly under legal exposure. By its very existence, a waste disposal site is undesirable and often local residents, who may suffer from the nuisance of odor, smoke and air pollution from transport, will take action against the site operators. Measures may be taken by the local authority, the Ministry of Environment, the environmental organizations and today, in light of the Class Action Law - also by individual citizens.
Is it permissible to accept some type of waste gain entrance to the site? What type of approvals are required in order to receive waste, and what type of certification is desirable and advisable to give to those who transported the waste? What are the relevant requirements and legal business license, and over which requirements it should be worthwhile and advisable to negotiate? Which arguments should one reveal when negotiating the business license? What conditions exist in regard to waste disposal sites in the world? These questions and many others like them, are questions within our field of expertise. We have extensive experience and long-standing familiarity with the field of waste around the world. Especially now - when there are "specialties" of different types of waste (hazardous waste, asbestos, household packaging waste, electronic waste, medical waste, etc.) it is important to recognize the subtleties in order not to keep ahead of things. A "fall through the cracks" could end up being painful and costly.
