Offering a complete service - from testing to recycing and disposal service through to remediation.
Over the past few years there has been an increasing awareness of issues surrounding land contamination and the potential for substances on, in or under land to impact upon people, animals and the wider environment.
The government has set a target of 60% new build on previously used land, often referred to as ‘brownfield sites’.
Frequently, these sites have some form of contamination present upon them usually arising from past activities, particularly those of an industrialnature. One of the first tasks in the redevelopment of such ‘brownfield sites’ is dealing with the legacy of its past uses.
This is done through effective intrusive site investigation and the developmentof a remediation plan. The method of remediation isdependent upon a number of factors, including the natureof contaminants present, the subsurface geology andthe available timeframes. Although the market for remediationtechnologies such as cement stabilisation or typesof bioremediation is expanding in the UK, the majorityof remediation (around 75%) still involves less technical solutions, primarily excavation and reuse or disposal.
Ward Recycling can offer services from sampling and analysis through to solution providing such as remediation or disposal.
