Save Money - Our range of waste management services can save you money in two primary ways. Firstly, by assessing the proposed development at a site and, if required, carrying out contamination testing, we can provide recommendations for the re-use of waste and reduce the need for off-site waste disposal. Secondly, by carrying out soil sampling and testing for known contaminants we can potentially classify waste soil as non-hazardous or inert, this will greatly reduce the landfill tax charged on disposal.
Fast & Qualified Service - Turnaround for laboratory testing and reports within days of commencement, with soil testing carried out in a UKAS accredited laboratory that meets all relevant British Standards and consultancy services carried out by qualified environmental consultants with years of practical waste management experience.
Comply With Regulation - Government legislation states that it is the legal responsibility of the waste producer to ensure waste is appropriately managed. It is considered part of your 'Duty of Care'. However, this is not always a simple process and the correct knowledge and credentials are essential in order to make sure you comply with the relevant regulations and avoid potential penalties. Luckily you're not alone, we can work on your behalf to ensure waste management for your site is appropriately and efficiently carried out, saving you time and money in the process.
Sample Test Kit - For waste management projects that require soil waste contamination testing, our soil testing kits allow you to take the samples yourself, we'll collect them and carry out the testing in our UKAS accredited laboratory. This cuts the cost of sending our technician to your site to carry out sampling work. It also allows for a quicker turnaround as we are able to send soil testing kits to you within 2 days, you can take samples whenever is convenient for you, then we can analyse those samples within 6 working days as standard or 3 working days if you opt for our fast track turnaround.
Management Following The Waste Hierarchy
Prevention - When waste is produced through business activities (e.g. soil waste from digging foundations) it's important to implement the 'Waste Hierarchy'. This sets out the ways businesses should attempt to minimise waste in order of importance and includes prevention, re-use, recycling, recovery and finally, disposal. In order to prevent and reduce the need for off-site waste disposal, we carry out a range of consultancy services and can work in conjunction with your architects, engineers and/ or groundworkers, taking into account your specific requirements and site and logistical constraints.
Re-use - In order to assess the ability to safely re-use waste soil, usually created during the site preparation and excavation stages of a construction project, a combination of consultancy, reporting and physical soil testing is required. This is primarily achieved by carrying out a Phase 1 Preliminary Risk Assessment, to assess the level of risk to future site users from the re-use of waste at the site, and Phase 2 Intrusive Site Investigations, testing soil from the site in a UKAS accredited laboratory and analysing results to quantify the risk to future site users.
Recycling, Recovery & Disposal - Disposal of waste to landfill is generally a last resort and should be avoided where possible. However, for hazardous soil, sometimes landfill disposal is the best or only option available and this can be a complicated and time consuming process that needs to be appropriately managed to avoid unnecessary delays, costs and even penalties for illegal waste disposal. For the disposal of soil waste to landfill, Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) testing may be necessary, AFTER a Waste Classification Test has classified the waste as non-hazardous or hazardous, to tell you which type of landfill the waste will be accepted at (inert, non-hazardous, hazardous).
Waste Management Consultancy Service Case Study
Following initial contact with the client, a utilities & engineering company, our waste management consultants created a fast, detailed and fully tailored approach to assessing contamination risk and laboratory testing requirements for the client.
The client required a cost effective and fast way of complying with new waste disposal regulations. The answer was to develop a process of, initially, identifying areas on-site with an elevated risk of contaminated soil waste, followed by a supporting on-site survey to collate additional information. With sufficient data, our waste management consultants made a recommendation on the requirement to conduct a Waste Classification Test to, as the name suggests, classify waste as non-hazardous or hazardous for disposal.
This case study highlights our ability to create tailored waste management reports, combining consultancy and contamination testing, such as Waste Classification & WAC Testing, to help our clients comply with regulations, save money and show due diligence.
