Damian is our man on the ground, working hard to encourage new and innovative ways to recycle waste - be it packaging, batteries or WEEE. By partnering opportunities and improvements in the UK recycling industry with compliance, he is able to realise tangible and valuable opportunities to benefit both our members and the domestic waste industry. By introducing suppliers to Circularety, Damian is helping to bring producers and recyclers closer together to help influence recycling and recycling rates to the benefit of all involved.
Having been in the industry for the last 16 years, dealing with the physical recycling of WEEE, plastics, cardboard and paper, as well as legal compliance, Damian has a wide skillset – in short there isn’t anything he doesn’t know about the waste and recycling industry! He has run numerous businesses, ranging from a beach café, restaurant, dive centre, IT company, computer importer and retailer in the South West, plus WEEE and plastics recycling companies. One of the most notable companies he ran was A1 Compliance, one of the original WEEE producer compliance schemes. It is fair to say that he understands the day-to-day pressures facing our suppliers and members.
Outside of work Damian served as a volunteer coastguard search and rescue officer in Falmouth, Cornwall for twenty years. Needless to say he is passionate about the marine environment, is an amateur marine conservationist and loves diving and surfing. He also enjoys martial arts and competes regularly. And despite being possibly the world’s worst ever player, he enjoys the odd round of golf.
