Waste Classification

The fundamental understanding of the physical and chemical properties of waste is the key to successful waste classification and management. Utilising a range of analytical and desk based tools, Geotechnology is able to assist clients with classifying waste streams in accordance with the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) and landfill category, designing waste management plans and supervising their implementation. The process starts with a determination of the potential hazardous properties which requires identification of the compounds present and is often followed by laboratory based leach testing .

Geotechnology is able to specify and supervise all necessary laboratory testwork and provide clear guidance on the classification of the waste and the variability within it.
