Mat Crocker to take on EA waste role from 1 April

The current fisheries chief at the Environment Agency (EA) Mat Crocker will switch to take over the position of head of waste on April 1, MRW can confirm.

Liz Parkes, who currently heads up the waste department at the EA, will transfer to the climate change department. All switches within the agency will be made on 1 April.

According to MRW sources, Mat Crocker has a deep waste background and has worked in waste regulation in the past. He has held the position as the head of fisheries since November 2008.

The changes are a part of a big reshuffle at the agency. Some staff, including those in the Bath and Westbury offices, have been relocated to the new EA head office building in Bristol.

Liz Parkes has been at the EA since its formation in 1996. She has been very active in her waste role, more recently campaigning for tougher sentences for those committing waste crime.
