Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) Testing

WAC testing is a mandatory test used to identify whether the soil or material will be accepted by a specific type of landfill site. This can include the level of contamination that could potentially leach into the surrounding landscape and water. It will also include how much organic material is present and to test for key contaminants. 

WAC testing is available from £376.
