Soil Waste Classification Course


Soil waste classification and management is a subject that is often not covered within traditional Phase 2 Site Investigation reports. This can leave those dealing with waste soils (e.g. developers and groundworks contractors) exposed to unknown costs for waste soil disposal and non-compliance with Duty of Care Regulations.


Albion is highly experienced in the interpretation of Site Investigation reports, soil waste classification and soil management. Our bespoke training courses are designed to help your staff understand the steps required to ensure your business is compliant with waste legislation and how you can manage waste soil in a cost effective & sustainable manner.

The course will benefit Quantity Surveyors, Contracts Managers, Technical Managers and Site Managers.
