Waste Soil Classification

It is not just about the WAC!

There is a common misconception within the construction industry that when disposing of surplus soil all that is required is a Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) result.  This is simply not true. 

The correct designation of waste soil is a complex step by step process.  It may be that no testing is required, or that specific contamination tests are needed.  WAC tests can often be unnecessary or entirely inappropriate.
