Solid Waste Management

Government Division

Our lawyers advise public and private sector clients in significant transactions related to solid waste management. We have intimate knowledge of the inner workings of government solid waste and environmental issues because our team includes lawyers who previously counseled the solid waste departments of both Broward and Miami-Dade County.  We represent clients in dealings with local, state and federal governments, offering experience in the interrelated disciplines of environmental law, land use law, real estate, municipal franchises, government contracts and corporate transactions to provide complete solutions.

Our solid waste-related work includes representation of Waste Services Inc. on business, environmental, regulatory and procurement matters throughout Florida, representing Allied Bank of Texas in a workout scenario involving the transfer of a recycling plant in South Miami-Dade County, and representing Broward County municipalities in a successful challenge to Broward County’s assertion of exclusive jurisdiction over solid waste disposal.  We have also handled permitting for additional solid waste cells at the Davie Landfill and permitting for Broward County’s waste to energy plants.
