Training – Soil Waste Classification

The strong growth trajectory for the construction industry continues and we at Verde have seen a major increase in the demand for our consultancy services to assist design teams and contractors to undertake the correct classification of waste materials.

For brownfield site redevelopments in particular, expert classification provides the waste producer and holder with clarity on available options and associated disposal costs.  In Ireland, stringent waste management regulations make it a statutory requirement for waste to be characterised and to assess if it also meets specific Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) prior to disposal at a landfill site.

Verde have developed a one hour seminar that educates attendees on the most up-to-date practice in this area.

Course Topics
  • Overview of relevant Waste Management Legislation
  • How to complete a Hazardous Waste Assessment
  • Classifying Waste for Disposal or Recovery
  • Current Options and Costs for Soil Disposal or Recovery in Ireland
  • Options for dealing with waste containing Invasive Species
  • Export of Waste under Trans-frontier Shipping
  • Asbestos containing materials
  • Article 27 (By-Product) Declarations
