The most common way of disposing of contaminated waste from a site is the “dig and dump” approach. Site waste needs classification, or it will be treated as hazardous, making it prohibitively expensive to dispose of to a landfill.

Waste excavated from a building site can contain three different classifications, and each one carries a different cost to dispose of at a landfill. They are hazardous, non-hazardous and inert. 

Inert soils are the most cost-effective to dispose of as they present no hazard to the environment; this means they are also re-usable on-site post-excavation.

Hazardous and non-hazardous soils/materials are the most expensive to remove as they present a risk to our health or the environment. We can take this waste, gain the correct classification and treat if necessary.

Using our innovative LockedIn® technology, we’re often able to lock the contamination into the soil. This means it can remain on-site, which prevents the need for landfill entirely. LockedIn® presents significant cost savings to you and also reduces landfill consumption.
