The waste sector has been tasked with reducing the amount of waste which goes into landfill by 2030 as part of the UK Government's Clean Growth Strategy. This change in the way that the UK treat waste will mean that new and different types of facilities will need to be developed. A lack of suitable development land is likely to be resolved by the regeneration of brownfield sites which come with a wide range of economic challenges and regulatory requirements.
