About us

post conflict disaster waste

Disaster Waste Recovery has a specialist team at its core with extensive experience in disaster relief. Our team have worked for the UN, World Bank, national government agencies, International NGOs as well as private waste companies and environmental consultancies.

We use our expertise to empower communities to recover from the scars of man-made and natural disasters, helping them to rebuild livelihoods for a resilient future.

The organisation was founded by Martin Bjerregaard, who uses his 20 years of experience in post-disaster and conflict debris and waste management to enable Disaster Waste Recovery to respond rapidly with expert teams and specialist knowledge to global crises.

Disaster Waste Recovery is actively supported by Engineers for Disaster Relief (RedR), the British Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), and the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA).
