Hazardous Waste Removal Example: Marconi Site, Chelmsford

With this contact, Absolute Asbestos Solutions Ltd removed 8-tonnes of asbestos cement debris from an 800m3 of soil to a maximum depth of 1m to remove all visible asbestos debris as far as practicable in a forensic manner. Soil was be stock piled by an excavator in 80m3 piles ready for testing and removal from site in a segregated area. We supplied and laid specialist hi-vis Terram (a special membrane) to the excavated area – the hi-vis Teram acts as a barrier for anyone digging down in the future as this will highlight where the contaminated soil recommences below the 1m line.

Background and personal air monitoring was carried out sporadically throughout the process and removed contaminants to below 0.01% levels.

800m3 of the non-hazardous stock piled soil was spot-tested prior to removal from site. Samples were taken to equate to one every 80m3 pile resulting in 10 samples being sent to the laboratory. The soil was classed as non-hazardous and removed from the site.
