If your site requires disposal of contaminated soil, whether due to gradual or a sudden and unforeseen contamination, ToddSkips are able to carry out the physical remediation and supply the plant and haulage needed.
Prior to any development, as a part of the planning process the developer has to undertake a site survey, and in turn produce a SI report (site investigation report) which amongst other items, identifies the ground conditions including contamination of the ground.
Planning consents are often qualified so that the contamination has to be remediated or removed, so that it poses no ‘threat to human health’.
The Remediation Strategy
ToddSkips will read the SI report and design a remediation strategy to remove the diesel contaminated soil, so that the site is suitable for the end use. The end use of the site could be a car park, where the previously contaminated soil will be underneath, this is much less of a risk than if it was under a domestic garden where plants and vegetables are to be grown.
A remediation strategy is agreed upon, this normally involves dig and dispose, with the end use of the site always in mind. Any diesel contaminated hotspots are isolated with the contamination being fully explored and excavated under engineer supervision. Todd’s make sure as little waste as possible is removed, only removing the contaminated soil.
Once the remediation is complete, we are able to validate the work undertaken. This is often a simple document that contains all the waste transfer notes and a statement of the quantity removed, locations from where the contamination has been removed and the disposal location.
We use a number of disposal outlets for the disposal of contaminated soils.
We make sure that all disposal outlets we use are permitted by the Environment Agency, including our own facilities, soil washing facilities and hazardous facilities.
