Characterisation and classification of waste materials plays an important role when a decision is required on the most appropriate, and efficient, waste management and materials reuse approaches.
Whilst simple excavation and disposal of soil is still common practice in the construction industry, rising disposal costs and requirement to reduce environmental impacts, are driving the reduction of site waste materials to landfill.
Please download and make use of our helpful Materials Reuse Flowchart.
We are able to provide the support required in order to derive the most appropriate sampling, laboratory testing and assessment of materials, including options appraisals in line with the Waste Hierarchy (Prevention, Minimisation, Reuse, Recycling and Disposal).
