WASTE SOIL MANAGEMENT
Surplus or contaminated soil disposal can be an expensive business. At ERS we focus on minimising these 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 real-time
TREATING TO REDUCE WASTE CLASSIFICATION
Treatment can often be used to reduce contaminants or modify them to less hazardous or mobile forms, each of which can reduce the waste classification.
Whether it’s an oil spill or asbestos, heavy metals or Japanese Knotweed, ERS brings a detailed understanding of the factors that influence waste classification and the variety of disposal and treatment options available, ensuring that we can dispose of your soils and waters in the most cost-effective manner.
ERS’ is a licensed waste broker and haulier and will 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.
ERS has consigned hundreds of thousands of tonnes of contaminated soil. If you would like more information about contaminated soil disposal or remediation options for your site, contact us today to speak to one of our experts.
