Prariewood NSW, Waste Classification


RARE Environmental was engaged by ERTECH Pty Ltd to undertake an in-situ waste classification a site located in Prariewood NSW. RARE undertook a desktop review, and identified a naturally occurring analyte that resulted in an overly conservative waste classification than was required. Our subsequent assessment of the material confirmed that this analyte was consistent with natural levels, providing our client with a cost saving option for beneficial reuse of the material, and avoidance of disposal.

Site activities included;

  • Desktop review of previous investigations

  • Collection of sufficient samples to comply with NSW Sample Design Guidelines requirements

  • Testing of samples against the NSW Waste Classification Guidelines and ENM Exemption Order

  • Preparation of Waste Classification Assessments for proposed excavation
