How it works

Usually, there is dirt and soil remaining once a landscaping or construction project is completed. This remaining soil can be reused for onsite backyard projects, like a garden bed. If the soil is a Virgin Excavated Natural Material (VENM), it can be reused offsite by depositing or spreading it on new land area. This soil can also be transported to a soil recycling plant for due treatment or a landfill for disposal. Some guidelines and permits must be followed before disposing of soil in a landfill, otherwise the landholders could be fined.

Soil waste disposal may be costly, especially with contaminated soil, but iSeekplant can help you find soil removal services that fit your budget. We have a nationwide network of soil waste removal specialists who are equipped and ready to complete your soil disposal and recycling services, along with other quarry products involving concrete recycling, waste disposal, landscaping supplies, gypsum, crushed rock, top soil, crushed dust, road base, sand supplies, soil supplies, aggregate supplies, crushed concrete, drainage gravel, crushed limestone and washed sand.

Soil Disposal FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right soil disposal company for your job

1. What is soil removal?

If you have contaminated land, you will be responsible for the excavation, hauling and disposal of the contaminated soil. There are three degrees of soil contamination - general solid waste, restricted solid waste and hazardous waste. Landholders can also opt for soil recycling, both onsite and offsite. Onsite soil recycling must first undergo a risk assessment to determine if the soil is fit for recycling. Offsite soil recycling uses soil for other construction projects after the same contamination risk assessment.

 

2. How to get rid of contaminated soil?

There are many soil waste removal companies that can be contacted to remove contaminated soils from your site. When it comes to treating contaminated soil safely, be sure to choose companies who are equipped with the appropriate gear and methods. Below are some treatment methods that soil removal companies can use for soil recycling:

  • Thermal Desorption. This method is used for materials that are contaminated with a broad range of hydrocarbons.
  • Bioremediation. This method is used as a cost-effective and eco-friendly method in recycling non-hazardous contaminated soil.
  • Chemical Fixation. This method is used for soil contaminated with hydrocarbon and metal.
  • Physical Treatment. This method is a simple process of segregation that removes foreign materials from the incoming soils.
 

3. Do you need a permit for soil disposal?

The Environmental Protection Act 1994 regulates soil waste removal. This Act explains that you must first obtain a soil waste disposal permit to legally remove, treat and dispose of soils in your area. This permit ensures that the contaminated soils are correctly disposed and no contaminated sites are created after dumping. The contaminated soil must be managed correctly to avoid environmental and human health risks.

 

4. How much does it cost to remove soil?

The average excavation and earthmoving cost in Australia is about $90 per hour. This price is subject to change depending on the size of the area and its accessibility. So, the price range is from $80 per hour to $100+ per hour. Another factor to consider for excavation cost is the location within Australia, as South Australia has the lowest rate at $80 per hour while the Australian Capital Territory has the highest rate at $100 per hour.
