Waste - Cardboard Recyling

Waste and Resource Recovery

Russell Kennedy is a thought leader in the waste and resource recovery sector. We support private and government clients with a comprehensive range of legal services throughout the project lifecycle.

 

We work with organisations providing essential waste and resource recovery services throughout Victoria. Our clients include landfill and transfer stations, recycling and composting facilities, waste-to-energy plants, industrial waste storage and treatment facilities, and rendering plants.

We provide guidance and representation throughout the project lifecycle – from procurement and approvals to construction, operations, closure and rehabilitation.

China’s ‘National Sword’ Policy

Russell Kennedy has played a leading role in supporting the industry to respond to the significant disruption caused by China’s National Sword policy. We’ve negotiated directly with all major service providers on our clients’ behalf, and hosted seminars for the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group and Sustainability Victoria to explore its impact on the industry. 

Climate Change

Our sustainability and climate change experts advise on carbon trading licensing issues, energy efficiency/emissions reduction projects, fuel credits and government grants, excise and GST, governance and climate change obligations, and recycling and waste processing contracts. We also assist with energy efficiency standards, green lease negotiations, carbon sequestration and Forestry Rights Act 1996 (Vic) advice, water recycling, methane capture, energy production and governance.
