If you have surplus soils which can be re-used, or you need clean materials to make up your site levels, then there are two web-sites you should have a look at as your waste might be someone’s resource, and visa versa. Reducing the volume of materials going in to landfill has been a government focus for several years, saving money on soil disposal or purchase has never been out of focus.
CL:AIRE – http://bit.ly/1ftvPY6
This site contains a wealth of information including a register of materials for donor and receiver sites, and aims to put soil treatment clusters together. I don’t know how much success they’ve had, I’ll ask and add the response when it arrives.
Resource Efficient Scotland – http://bit.ly/1b4jpTL
This Scottish addition ( I don’t think the CL:AIRE site discriminates (yet)) is a Materials Register for more than just soil, and acts like a dating site matching needs to requirements.
Both of these web-sites will only achieve their potential if we all contribute when the opportunity arises.
If you know of other web-sites, or have and feedback on the ones listed above, then please let us know in the comments box below.
