Oil Spill Response
ERS has been providing oil spill response services for the last 10 years. We’ve been all over the UK diagnosing and fixing the consequences of failed pipes and oil storage tanks. We work for both individual clients and loss adjustors.
We understand that time is important when a loss has been discovered. We provide a quick response service to minimise the impact of the fuel leak to human health, and the soil and water environments. we follow this up with a tailored remediation strategy to provide the speediest and most cost effective re-instatement solution.
We’re accredited by the UK Oil Spill Association.
Site owners and operators must ensure that construction waste, excess soil and contaminated soil is sorted, tested and classified in accordance with Technical Guidance WM2. Where there is a requirement for disposal, this includes the new Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) tests for inert and hazardous waste.
Developers must also ensure that sites are registered with SEPA or the Environment Agency and in England and Wales that a site waste management plan (SWMP) is in place.
ERS provides a complete on-site and off-site waste testing, classification and segregation service to ensure that your project complies fully with the latest regulations. We also evaluate the options available for treatment, retention and reuse of segregated wastes before considering waste classification for disposal, minimising your landfill tax liability.
