The movement and use of treated asphalt waste containing coal tar.

Asphalt waste is created when material is removed from roads, car park, pavements etc. When the binder used within the asphalt is bitumen, then the asphalt waste produced can be regarded as a non-hazardous waste. However, when the binder contains coal tar and exceeds the relevant hazardous threshold, then the asphalt waste produced will be classed as hazardous. The normal route for dealing with this type of hazardous waste in Scotland is to remove the material and transport it to a suitable third-party facility for disposal. This can be very expensive with disposal costs, landfill tax costs and haulage. 

Albion Environmental have had approval from SEPA, on a site by site by basis, that if the waste produced is treated in an agreed manner and is backed up with suitable procedures and records, then this waste can comply with current Waste Legislation.  This material can be re-used in sub-layers of the new road, car park or footpath engineering works at the site it was produced. This approach also very much improves the sustainability criteria that we are all striving to achieve.
