Short description: An outcome of the NICOLE workshop in Sofia in November 2004, was that the role of waste legislation on a national and European Union (EU) level in contaminated land management is a key issue affecting NICOLE members. It also became clear from recent European Court of Justice (ECJ) rulings that the definition of waste on an EU level and its interpretation at a national level may differ from country to country. Following the Sofia workshop NICOLE decided that it would be worthwhile to prepare an overview of a series of countries on how they have dealt with the relationship between waste and (contaminated) soil. Its aim can be summarised as follows: • Review of the existing legal situation in a number of countries pertaining to soil and waste • Extent of the (legal) link between contaminated soil and waste • Organisation of reuse of contaminated soil • Conditions under which contaminated soil could be left in place This report reviews the findings of this project.
