We are pleased to welcome Professor Stephen L Willetts to the Seminar. He will be speaking on Environmental Prosecutions
After completing his PhD in the chemistry and economics of farm waste management, Stephen Willetts started his career in waste management with the (former) Yorkshire Water Authority and then Humberside County Council – two of the predecessors to the Environment Agency.
After five years in public service, he joined the private sector working for the Leigh Environmental Group of Companies and then the Steetley Group (which was taken over by Redland and then Lafarge). Most latterly he was the Group Technical Director at Leigh before its acquisition by Veolia.
Since 1995, however, he has been self-employed and a sole trader acting as a Consultant to the waste management industry. He specialises in the practical application of legislation relating to waste management and has appeared as an Expert Witness in many Court cases. He has worked for a number of private and public sector Clients as well as directly with Solicitors.
He is the co-author of and contributor to several text books in waste management, has had over fifty technical papers published and has spoken at numerous national and international Conferences.
He tutors and lectures in waste management.
