Asbestos in soil is a “hot topic” for clients and other stakeholders in the contaminated land industry. Without careful management and control, costs involved with addressing the impacts of asbestos in soil have the potential to rapidly increase, and ultimately directly impact project budgets.
As a full-service environmental contractor, Industrial Environmental Services has significant experience in dealing with sites that are affected with asbestos impacted soil. With IES holding a Class A asbestos removal licence, combined with our highly trained site staff and specialised plant, we are able to demonstrate an unrivalled ability to manage and operate on asbestos impacted sites. Our specialist operations involve processing affected soil to maximise asbestos removal, facilitate soil re-classification, and hence deliver flexibility for either onsite re-use or offsite disposal, typically at a lower unit rate per tonne.
