How Much Does Contaminated Soil Disposal Cost?

26 September 2023by cleanoodle.com

This query has several components;

– Site costs
It is obvious that a larger excavator, or possibly two or three, will be needed if there is a considerable volume of material. However, if your volume is small, be careful because smaller excavators frequently lack the reach necessary to load an ordinary tipper truck with eight wheels.
 Haulage rates
Normally hauliers will levy a waiting time fee if it takes longer than, say 15 minutes to load the lorry.

Some disposal sites will permit articulated lorries, though many traditional landfill sites will not (as they tend to fall over when on soft ground…!).

For small volumes, you may want to consider using roll-on-off skips or builder skips. Mini excavators and scissor dumpers can load these.

– Landfill site gate fees

In this context, precise waste categorization holds immense importance. Often, soils classified as hazardous should rightfully fall under the non-hazardous category.

Depending on the nature and scale of contamination, the expenses linked to the extraction of perilous soil can exhibit considerable variation throughout the nation, spanning from roughly £40 per metric ton to as much as £150 per metric ton. A more favorable gate fee can be secured with increased traffic volume.

Again, costs to dispose of non-hazardous soil vary nationwide, ranging from about £10/t to £50/t. The higher rate indicates that the Landfill Tax may not be applied at soil treatment facilities.
– Landfill tax (LFT)
Some disposal sites do not apply LFT, which results in significant savings.

In general, you will get a better gate fee the more traffic there is. Again, the cost to dispose of non-hazardous soil varies across the nation from about £10 to £50 per t.
How can we remove soil contamination?
Bacteria are used in biological treatment and bioremediation to degrade pollutants in the soil.

Contaminated soils are changed into non-hazardous soils through chemical oxidation.

Immobilizing agents are added to the soil during soil stabilization to lessen the leachability of pollutants.

What is the timeframe required for the remediation of contaminated soil?

The duration for cleansing polluted soil may span from as brief as a single day to as extensive as several years. The precise excavation timeline shall be subject to a variety of factors. For instance, if the contaminated region is big, deep, or below the water table, it can take longer.
What is the duration of soil bioremediation?

The span of soil purification can be as brief as a single day or as extensive as multiple years. The precise timeline for excavation is contingent upon a multitude of factors. For instance, if the contaminated region is big, deep, or below the water table, it can take longer.
