    Contaminated Soil

    Contaminated soil is Waste Type Identification Number 27 and by definition is a Special Handling Waste. Anyone needing to dispose of contaminated soil is asked to contact ACUA by calling (609) 272-6950.
    Contaminated soil is a portion of solid waste consisting of contaminated earth or fill, typically generated due to spill or leak. Contaminated soil is a Special Handling Waste. For Special Handling Waste ACUA requires the Transporter and or Generator to contact ACUA prior to delivering the waste for disposal by calling (609) 272-6950. For additional requirements and procedures for the disposal of contaminated soil please see below.
    Procedures for Accepting Contaminated Soils
    Contractors seeking to use ACUA facilities for the disposal/recycling of contaminated soils must submit a complete TCLP (Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure) method analysis, including lab results for the following factors:
    • Ignitability
    • Corrosivity
    • Reactive Sulfide
    • Reactive Cyanide
      along with any other parameter that may be requested by ACUA. Disposal of soils that can be verified as home owner exempt with TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) under 5000 ppm (parts per million) are usually approved without TCLP testing.

    All loads of Contaminated Soil will be weighed at the Scale House and then will be directed by the Scale Master to the Landfill for inspection and off loading.
