Soil Sample Testing Service

There is a growing requirement for efficient and accurate soil sample testing to determine the waste classification of ground material within the construction, housing & infrastructure industry. Ecofficiency’s soil sample testing service is particularly well suited to sites where both time and space is at a premium and has been developed to meet the requirements of today’s demanding construction programs.

The waste producer has the legal responsibility to classify any waste they generate and our super efficient soil sample testing service provides the customer with clear and concise interpretation of chemical data within a Waste Classification Summary Report.

A large percentage of sampling requirements across the UK involves stockpiled material which requires a basic soil sampling process and is suited to self-sampling, for this option our cost effective and efficient soil sample testing kit will meet all your requirements. Alternately, we offer another option to incorporate site visits to develop a sampling strategy on more complex sites.

Either option comes with turnaround guarantees of between 1-5 days dependant on the urgency of your requirements.
