Cuddy Remediation have been successful with Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council to carry out a Waste Classification and categorisation at the former Lewis skip site.
Works will include controlled sampling and analysis on the waste stockpiles to determine the type and condition of materials currently present on site. The contract will be undertaken by Cuddy Remediation and supervised by the Council’s Technical Services Team.
These investigation works will form the basis of future discussions with Natural Resource Wales that will then determine a strategy for the removal of the waste stockpiles.
The 4-week programme includes substantial investigation into the main 12,000 tonne waste stockpile on the site and several other waste stockpiles. The material will then be sampled and classified as per the current WM3 Waste classification guidance.
