The soil washing process separates contaminated material using various wet-jetting processes during which, intensive washing takes place. Once complete, the clean material is classified according to size with the finest fraction dewatered using a centrifuge. The process produces a WRAP approved aggregate, which can be used on site for backfill and other applications.

Conveniently located for hazardous waste disposal in London, the South East, East Anglia and the East Midlands, our network of waste management facilities includes an SNRHW landfill for contaminated waste and a licensed disposal cell for Asbestos waste.
