Fast tracked Waste Classification Testing Service for Soil

EcoEnvironmental provides a fast tracked waste classification soil testing service for soils prior to removal and disposal from site.


There is a growing requirement for efficient and accurate soil testing to determine the waste classification of ground material within the construction industry.


Our experienced Site Engineers offer nationwide coverage of the UK within a 24-hour callout period to cover your full soil test requirements. We will work with you to develop you a sampling strategy for your site or simply provide our cost effective and efficient soil sampling kit for more basic stockpiled material. Either option comes with turnaround guarantees of between 1-5 days dependant on the urgency of your requirements


Our soil testing service is particularly well suited to sites where both time and space is at a premium and was developed to meet the requirements of today’s demanding construction programs.


The waste producer has the legal responsibility to classify any waste they generate and our service provides the customer with clear and concise interpretation of chemical data within a Waste Classification Summary Report. It is important for waste producers to remember that the costs associated with carrying out a more thorough approach to sampling and analysis can be negated if the volumes of Hazardous waste removed from the site can be reduced by even a single load.


Technical Guidance WM3; Guidance on the classification and assessment of waste (1st Edition 2015) changed the way waste producers should classify waste. The introduction of Appendix D: Waste Sampling sets out new guidance for soil testing compliance.


Limited chemical data is a common problem when looking to remove soil based waste materials and it can lead to the following difficulties;


 - Historic site investigation data is often not designed for waste classification and can be insufficient, inaccurate, outdated and non-compliant with WM3.

 - Incorrect classification can drastically increase disposal/transportation costs,

 - It can potentially breach legislation, and

 - Having a transparent and defensible audit trail reduces a company’s risks.

 - Delays incurred waiting for soil testing results to return will often effect programme of work resulting in unnecessary increased costs.

Senior Buyer - Amco

Ecofficiency were proven to be very efficient throughout the remediation works and adapted swiftly to the constantly changing waste streams presented to them.

Rob Moreu – Director, ASH Remediation

Ecofficiency provided a prompt and reliable service throughout the project and were especially reactive over the blockade period where it was essential service requirements were met. The project’s success was largely due to our contractor’s cooperation and commitment to the project and I would have no hesitation in utilising Ecofficiency’s services on similar projects in the future.

C. Johnson - C Spencer Ltd

Ecofficiencys support was excellent turning around the soil testing very quickly and then organising the removal of contaminated soil the instant the results were known.

Vince Dalton – Contracts Manager, Dakin Contractors Ltd

I would like to confirm that Ecofficiency have been a supplier to The Spencer Group for a number of years. During this time they have supplied good cost effective waste management solutions up and down the country and material supply on the projects I have been involved in. I would not hesitate to recommend the Services of Ecofficiency. Well done and keep up the good work.

Wayne Gammon, Project Manager - C Spencer Ltd

Through effective on-site segregation of our waste within skips and containers, Ecofficiency increased our diversion rates whilst reducing costs. The site waste management plan they generated clearly outlined project targets and achievements from the outset.

Nigel Hatton - Tolent Construction

Ecofficiency provided an excellent service and gave us a cost effective solution for dealing with the waste removal. We were able to get copies of all documentation with little fuss through the EMS and having a site supervisor present throughout the project gave us constant updates with wagon movements and any queries we had whilst the project was ongoing. I hope there will be more projects in the near future where we can work with Ecofficiency.
