Pesticide or herbicide usage, underground oil tanks, arsenic cattle dips, and other environmentally-detrimental practices were common not too long ago. If you’re attempting to develop land with soil that was contaminated by its previous purpose, you may find yourself subject to requirements imposed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
Dealing with hazardous and non-hazardous soils, dredged sediments and other environmentally-regulated waste materials is far from a matter of simply filling up a dump truck with dirt. The process of dealing with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)is complicated, with many requirements that need to be followed to the letter.
Our environmental team members have completed OSHA’s required Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HAZWOPER) training. They use appropriate testing methods and soil sampling frequencies to meet disposal and recycling facility-specific requirements.
Our team also interprets analytical data to determine soil “waste classification”, according to facility-acceptance criteria and coordinates with an independent 3rd party consultant who tests and delineates the area of contamination.
Pece of Mind Environmental, Inc. takes care of all the details for you. We manage the entire process following DEP protocols to ensure that your land can be used for your intended purpose.
