What is a soil waste classification assessment?

In accordance with EPA guidelines, a waste classification assessment of soils is required once soils have been earmarked to be disposed offsite.  Soil may be earmarked for offsite disposal when contaminated soils have been identified and are deemed unsuitable to remain at a site or when excess soils will be generated as part of site development (i.e. soil excavation for a basement car park).  Depending on the category of waste identified from the waste classification assessment, soils may require disposal to a specific landfill.

Additionally, specific transport requirements may need to be adopted as part of regulatory compliance.
