One of our members has recently expressed concern at the difficulty in the disposal of “street works spoil” – i.e. excavations from utility repairs where there is tarmacadam or asphalt present. This appears to be due to an increase in regulatory pressure on the receiving tips.
We are trying to work out if this this is a wide-spread problem/experience. We would be grateful for thoughts on;
1) Are the costs of disposing street works spoil increasing as the availability of disposal outlets decrease?
2) If you operate a recycling centre, have you come under increased regulatory pressure to identify all asphalt and separate it out from within “street works spoil”?
Thanks in advance!
