Outside of our portfolio of soil treatment facilities, Clean Earth offers a number of Beneficial Use (BU) options for soil recycling. These BU sites can be brownfield sites or landfills undergoing closure and redevelopment.
Soil is imported to these sites for use as fill and grading material, in conjunction with its state agency approved remedial action work plans or landfill closure plans. Each site offers its own unique acceptance criteria for imported fill and is overseen by a third-party engineer responsible for review of each potential source of fill. Upon review of data and an assessment that soil is suitable for a BU site, Clean Earth will match the export material with appropriate BU sites.
The major driver that affects whether soil is sent to the traditional soil treatment facility for recycling versus a BU site, is the chemical and physical properties of the soil to be removed. In New Jersey, BU soil will normally fall into a category of residential or non-residential fill, relative to applicable state clean-up criteria. BU soil does not require treatment and is therefore taken directly from the source to the chosen BU site. Aside from meeting the permit acceptance criteria, BU soil must also meet geotechnical specification for compaction or slope stability. BU options offer the lowest cost of disposal option because the material is directly placed into the site and does not receive additional treatment.
Clean Earth’s Beneficial Use options offer another avenue for our clients to save money, while utilizing a secure, state-permitted and approved disposal option.
