Following chemical analysis to determine composition and identify any hazardous components Leeds Environmental can segregate materials and treat contaminated soils from brownfield and redevelopment sites. Materials are classified in accordance with the waste classification codes, including List of Waste (LoW), the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) and Hazardous Waste Regulations.
As a forward-thinking company, we utilise innovative techniques that are tailor-made depending on treatment requirements and the site environment. These may include physical separation (screening), chemical or biological methods.

Our specialist and highly trained staff place safety and quality at the core of their approach to providing the right solution for each individual project. Our expertise is in the management of hazardous materials, whether it is identification, management, remediation, removal or disposal.
Stage 1 : Preliminary site investigation
Extensive desk research to understand the history of the site and its geographical/ geological content
Stage 2: Intrusive on-site investigation
Borehole drilling, sample collections and laboratory testing.
A thorough risk assessment to identify all source of contamination, the receptors(ie human health, water resources, ecosystems) that may be damaged and the pathways between them, evaluating whether leakages constitute a significant risk and setting appropriate targets.
Stage 3: Remediation works
An options appraisal to select the best technology, balancing the cost and benefits of clean-up and sustainability of options. This informs the implementation plan, which sets out how the objectives will be met.
Stage 4: Verification and validation
Monitoring to assess whether all the objectives have been achieved, with the relevant evidence duly presented.
