A major UK landfill operator was looking at importing road sweeping waste at two of their landfills for treatment before incorporating it within restoration materials as a soil enhancer.
Caulmert were appointed to advise on the most appropriate permitting route and subsequently prepared a bespoke permit variations to add a waste facility for physical treatment of non hazardous waste to the existing landfill installations.
As part of the application process Caulmert prepared reports to assess the potential risks to surface water and assigned soil screening values to the manufactured soils.
Both of the permit variations have now been issued by the EA.
