All waste producers must obtain characterisation data that, among other uses, will determine the destiny of each of their waste streams. First, there may be a need to determine whether the waste is hazardous or non-hazardous. Then, if it is to be landfilled, the class of landfill at which it can be accepted must be identified.
Except for certain listed and one-off wastes, each waste will be tested periodically by the landfill operator to ensure that the waste complies with the waste acceptance criteria for that class of landfill. We can provide Waste Acceptance Criteria testing which complies with the requirements of the Landfill Regulations and so facilitate safe and legal disposal of the waste. We also carry out landfill gas monitoring.
