Project Highlights

In 2023, Ecofficiency supported JMS, and their client Severn Trent PLC, in the removal of 25,021 tonnes of waste from HS2 Batch 2 Lavender Hall.

The land at Lavender Hall, Berkswell, was historically a landfill site which posed many challenges for JMS as they had to adhere to an EA position statement on the repurposing of the excavated spoil.

The aim of the Project was to remove waste to facilitate the diversion of two pipes, allowing for the construction of Phase 1 HS2.

Throughout this process Ecofficiency followed the Waste Framework Directive Guidance, which sets out the process for managing waste in line with legislation.

Project Management

Ecofficiency, as part of their Major Projects Strategy, provided a Senior Project Manager, technical and operational support to site throughout the duration of the works.

The Site Team mobilised the Ecofficiency in-house SiteLab (Ecofficiency’s Mobile Soil Testing Service) – which uses focussed Rapid Measuring Technology (RMT), which helped the Team to assess and minimise hazardous waste hotspots, sampling daily through active digs.

Ecofficiency also provided in-house Asbestos trained Site Agents to oversee logistics and compliance, as well acting as a watching brief to identify any non-conforming wastes.

A dedicated Project Manager was available throughout the works to ensure adherence to KPI’s, compliance, performance and commercial targets

The Results

Ecofficiency, using their extensive experience and knowledge in the waste industry, diverted 17,556 tonnes of non-hazardous incidental general waste through Permitted Wash Plants, the wash process creates segregated fractions including sands, gravels and 6F5. These fractions were then repurposed and are able to be reused in aggregate supplied back to the industry.

The remaining heavy soil fraction contaminated with general waste, 6465 tonnes, was diverted to picking lines to extract plastics, textiles and other fractions to be baled into RDF
