    What’s involved?

    These could be materials such as waste wood, solid non-hazardous industrial and household waste or any material that fits the requirements of standard BS EN 15359.

    We know that the smallest discrepancy in results can make a huge difference to our clients’ operations. We keep an open conversation with our clients during our services, promptly advising of any non-conformities.
