Asbestos contaminated LAND & SOIL
Although the awareness of asbestos in buildings and structures has grown in recent years, the handling of asbestos in soil is generally less understood, but it requires an equally careful and experienced approach. One of the many services we offer is asbestos land remediation for projects in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors.
The use of asbestos was banned in 1999 but you can still find asbestos on development sites across the UK. Naturally, sites where asbestos was heavily used or manufactured are high-risk for potential exposure, but it also includes sites where buildings and structures that contained asbestos were demolished, particularly pre-1980s.
WHO NEEDS LAND & SOIL REMOVAL?
If you’re working on an area such as this, you need to be aware of the risks involved and what assessments need to be taken.
If you suspect you have asbestos-contaminated land, soil or construction waste, the first step is to find out if there is asbestos, how much of it there is, how deep it is, and what kind of asbestos it is.
There are six types of asbestos. Each one is a different naturally-occurring mineral but together they are grouped under the generic term “asbestos”.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DISCOVER ASBESTOS Contaminated land?
There are different options available to you depending on your plans and the size of the project. You may only need asbestos in soil testing, bulk asbestos testing or Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) testing. WAC testing determines how soil will accepted at a particular landfill and how the material will behave once deposited. It is now mandatory by law in accordance with the Landfill Regulations in 2005.
