Our People

Dominique Sandy
I work primarily in Eunomia’s waste operations team providing local authority clients with advice on the delivery of environmental services. I have a keen interest in waste prevention, the circular economy and increasing recycling rates. Away from work I spend my time playing lacrosse.

Dominique is based in Eunomia’s London office and, with a background in the circular economy and recycling of complex materials, uses his in-depth knowledge of recycling, particularly for the consumers’ perspective, in the waste operations team.

Recent Experience

Dominique has worked on a wide range of projects since joining Eunomia last year. In particular his work has focussed on future service delivery options for authorities across London and the South East. In this work Dominique both manages projects and delivers technical work.

Wider work within Eunomia includes providing an operational management plan for the running of a waste handling facility for LB Hounslow, undertaking a literature review to support the Irish Government’s DCCAE in relation to the Access to Information on the Environment, and completing a report into the implementation of the Sewage Sludge Directive by European Union member states for DG Environment.

Career History

Before joining Eunomia, Dominique spent two years working in the Business Development team at TerraCycle. In this time, Dominique was responsible for launching new national recycling programmes for traditionally hard to recycle materials as well as managing the European side of a project collecting and recycling beach plastics. Leading TerraCycle’s work in the circular economy in Europe, Dominique participated in the New Plastics Economy initiative, working across the value chain to improve recycling rates. His business development remit covered both the UK and Scandinavia, giving him a strong working knowledge of recycling, particularly from the consumer’s perspective, in these markets and across Europe more widely.

Dominique has a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Bristol where he wrote a thesis in the Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group investigating greenhouse gases used in eye surgery and made recommendations to the Bristol Eye Hospital in relation to reducing their emissions of these gases.
