Costs to soar

02 May 2008

The dramatic reduction in the number of landfill sites able to accept hazardous waste in Scotland, for example, is set to have a significant impact on the Scottish construction and demolition industry, according to environmental regulation website, NetRegs (www.netregs.gov.uk).

Landfill sites in Scotland are due to be reduced from 250 to 110 by 2007 - with only two accepting hazardous waste. The price for land-filling waste is expected to increase by around 800% from 2007 onwards, compared to 2002 prices, with the introduction of the European Landfill Directive.
