Soil Treatment (STFs)

Untreated, contaminated soils can take up to 12 years to degrade. With Biffa's Soil Treatment Facilities it takes as little as 8 weeks.

With rising landfill taxes and a growing emphasis on corporate social responsibility, disposing of contaminated soil from brownfield sites is increasingly challenging. Biffa’s Soil Treatment Facilities (STFs) provide a cost-effective, sustainable alternative to landfill. 

Working in partnership with Biogenie, we offer full end-to-end service, from technical advice and material testing to treatment and recovery. Decontamination takes as little as eight weeks. Clean soils are then used on our site for Landfill restoration, so there is less material going to landfill.
