Why attend

This webinar will explain:

  • The EA’s view on waste classification particularly the classification of hazardous and non-hazardous waste soils
  • The Law and waste soil
  • What the Environment Agency is expecting in a Waste Classification Package
  • The (legal) responsibility of the Producer
  • Why waste classification has to be planned for at the beginning of a project, not at the end (different management issues)
  • Review of some of the common mistakes people make when classifying waste soils including why: landfill WAC data must not be used for waste classification; a “Standard analysis suite” should be called “Minimum analysis suite”; you can’t use simple rule of thumb or a list of threshold concentrations of e.g. metals, to assess a waste – explaining additivity; you mustn’t use the individual TPH-CWG bands to assess an unknown oil.
