2020 has been an interesting year for both waste and environmental protection reform. Glen McLeod Legal is glad to be involved in these areas.

Recently, the National Environmental Law Association, Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia and the Piddington Society hosted seminars to consider environmental law reform and opportunities and challenges in recovering construction and demolition material (C&D).

On Wednesday, Chelsea White of this firm in her role as a member of the Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia, assisted in arranging a seminar on the opportunities for reusing C&D waste in Western Australia and its interplay with the waste levy.

The following day, Lea Hiltenkamp of this firm chaired the Piddington Society’s seminar on ‘Environmental Law – are we in an era of reform?’

Both seminars included passionate and insightful presentations for leaders in the field, who gave their candid views on the current state of environmental legislation and the progress made in reusing construction and demolition products.
