Contaminated Soil Removal

“Envirovue acted fast and efficiently to get the job done and were very helpful with all the compliance involved. Finding the contaminated soil immediately put the project on hold but they got us up and running in no time.”


When a hazardous substance – like heavy metal, asbestos or radioactive material – has come into contact with soil, it is described as contaminated. Contaminated soil can be extremely harmful, with primary effects on health and the environment, and secondary effects causing water contamination and ecological disturbance.

While it’s imperative that we test, identify and dispose of contaminated soil safely and correctly to avoid substantial fines, in the context of a climate emergency, we will also support you to minimise any negative environmental impact by using eco-friendly methods throughout the process.

 It can be costly and time consuming to make sure you’re doing everything by the book when it comes to contaminated soil. Working with a waste partner you can trust to get things right means you can be confident all regulations are being met, without having to deal with it yourself.

 Our experts in soil disposal will work closely with you to tailor a responsible and compliant solution that meets your needs in the most cost-effective and sustainable way possible.

    What happens to waste once it’s collected?

    Contaminated soil disposal can be complicated, time consuming and costly, and it can be stressful trying to keep on top of all the regulations and compliance requirements.

    We have the knowledge, expertise and contacts to take the pressure off, by offering a complete waste management solution that meets your needs. Working with fully vetted providers, the first step in our process is to conduct an independent waste analysis so we know what we’re dealing with. We then review the contaminants in your waste and write a bespoke waste disposal plan that ensures your waste is being transported, handled and disposed of in the correct way.

    As well as making sure our methods are fully compliant, we do all we can to minimise the impact of your waste on the environment. We keep check on your carbon footprint throughout the process, automatically offsetting emissions as we go which supports you to meet your targets, and saves you money.

    We can help you with everything from small one-off projects, to large-scale projects which require the disposal of large volumes of soil in a short time-frame. Our outsourced position means we can be completely flexible and have the capacity to orchestrate multiple carriers to guarantee your site is up and running within your timescales.


    Our client came to us with a substantial amount of contaminated soil which was unsuitable for traditional inert disposal or recycling. The project had strict deadlines, which meant we had to act fast
