Working for our members

SCLF is run by a team of volunteers elected by the members.  We also have the support of regulators where representatives sit on the Executive Committee as observers.

SCLF is first and foremost a membership organsiation and so we are here for you so please get involved and get in touch with any of the Executive Committee.

David is an experienced materials manager with nearly 30 years track record in the private sector running waste management, quarrying, construction, multi-modal logistics and similar resource handling operations. During his tenure at W H Malcolm Limited, he has overseen the movement of circa 30 million tonnes of a variety of materials through the extensive fleet that he had access to but has moved on to a smaller, more challenging role at Environmental Reclamation Services Limited (ERS), trying to bring blighted land back into beneficial use through specialist chemical or physical treatments. 
He brings a passion and enthusiasm to the management of waste soils and aggregates and is essentially a “closet geologist” and over-qualified bin-man!

I have worked across various sectors, including brownfield regeneration, transportation (roads and bridges), buildings, water, renewable energy, marine/ports and harbours, and general civil engineering design / construction.
