Waste Classification

The correct classification of waste soil can save a significant amount of money; conversely, the incorrect classification of waste soil can affect the success of a project.

Waste classification using proprietary software and the results of contamination testing allows the classification of the waste to be determined, i.e. whether it is hazardous or non-hazardous waste, and European Waste Catalogue (EWC) codes to be provided.

Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) testing is then undertaken to determine at what designation of landfill site the soil may be disposed.

Case Study

Correct Waste Classification Saves Costs

Waste classification was undertaken on surplus soil at a residential development site in Exeter.

P20 Groundwater Risk Assessment Demonstrates No Remediation Required

At a former engineering works near Exeter, elevated levels of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) were recorded in both the soil and groundwater beneath the site.
