WASTE SOIL MANAGEMENT
Whether soil earmarked for disposal is contaminated by hydrocarbons, asbestos, heavy metals or invasive weeds like Japanese Knotweed, ERS brings a detailed understanding of the factors that influence waste soil classification. We offer a variety of disposal, remediation and reuse options, ensuring management of contaminated soils in the most cost-effective and sustainable manner available.
Surplus or contaminated soil disposal can be an expensive business. At ERS we focus on minimising costs for clients by:
ENSURING THE CLASSIFICATION IS CORRECT
Detailed knowledge of the relevant guidance and legislation; a thorough understanding of the waste itself, and expertise in environmental chemistry ensure that wastes are not over-classified due to lack of information or understanding.
UNDERTAKING ADDITIONAL ANALYSIS
Whether this is in advance of site works or during remediation itself, additional information minimises unnecessary expense. On-site testing for hydrocarbons and metals can be used to delineate and segregate in near real-time
TREATING TO REDUCE WASTE CLASSIFICATION
A range of remediation options can be used to treat contaminants or modify them to less hazardous or mobile forms, each of which can reduce the waste classification.
ERS’ is a licensed waste broker and haulier, and we have consigned hundreds of thousands of tonnes of contaminated soil. We provide you with a detailed package of duty of care documentation on completion of the works to satisfy any audit or as part of a validation report.
