Roy Hathaway has joined the Environmental Services Association (ESA) as an adviser. This follows his retirement from the post of head of waste regulation at Defra at the end of March.
Mr Hathaway had been at Defra since 2006 and was responsible for policy on waste regulation and commercial and industrial waste. He recently played a leading role in the government’s review of England’s waste policy.
Commenting on Mr Hathaway’s decision to start working with the Environmental Services Association (ESA), the trade association’s director, Barry Dennis, said: “We are delighted to have someone of Roy’s experience and calibre working with us.
“As the voice of the waste and resource management industry, ESA is looking to play a constructive role in the debate over how Britain can become more resource efficient and low carbon. Roy’s contribution will strengthen our ability to do this.”
