About Our Company

Filkin & Co EHS Limited was established in 2012 to provide sound advice in waste and resource management based upon expert technical knowledge gained from our previous experience in both the industrial and consultancy sectors. We believe that the basis of our service that sets us apart is the application of the latest knowledge in combination with hard-earned practical experience.

During our short company history, we have worked on projects for the private and public sector throughout the UK, and also in Azerbaijan and Angola.

Values and Principles

"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it's well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough money to pay for something better."
