We held a Seminar and open day at our soil treatment facility in Redhill on Tuesday, 24 September which was well attended by both brownfield developers and contractors. As there was a great deal of interest in the new oily waste guidance recently published by The Environment Agency, we presented and discussed the implications of this for contractors and developers If you missed the event and would like some guidance on the new legislation or to arrange a visit to one of our facilities to see for yourself how you can dispose of your contaminated soil compliantly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Something that surprised many on the site tour was that it’s not only soils that we are able to treat at our facilities, we are now able to take in Gully and road sweeping wastes on either a 19 or a 20 EWC code from the list of wastes, call us or email us for more details.
For further information on the new WM2 guidelines you can see an outline of what they will mean to you elsewhere in this newsletter or on our website.
Take a look at what some of the participants had to say:
‘It is heartening to see the remediation of contaminated soil being carried out, a change that contractors need to follow, rather than dumping such material with inert soil, on ‘exempt’ sites ‘.
Mark Jones, Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd
‘Seeing the facility first hand was incredibly interesting and Biogenie’s hospitality was second to none. A very informative and useful day.’
