Cory Riverside Energy endorses waste crime report

Waste Crime

Cory Riverside Energy endorses the findings contained in the recently published ‘Rethinking Waste Crime’ report, which was commissioned by the Environmental Services Association (ESA) and the Environmental Services Association Education Trust (ESAET).

 Nick Pollard, Group CEO of Cory Riverside Energy, said: “We fully support the stance of the ESA and we are proud to have played a part in the production of this report. Unethical operators are too frequently able to profit from activities that flout waste management legislation and breach protective environmental standards. The ESA offers constructive recommendations for strengthening the regulatory framework around waste crime, which blights local communities, harms the environment and costs the country hundreds of millions of pounds every year.   

 “We encourage local authorities and central government to adopt to the greatest extent possible the measures promoted in this paper and we also back efforts to encourage UK businesses to consider the waste management activities of their trading partners and suppliers. Strengthening duty of care legislation will help to provide clear responsibility for custody of waste and will go some way to eradicating these selfish and criminal activities that have no place in our society.”
