Short description: From 30 October 2007, non-hazardous waste must be treated before it can be landfilled. This requirement stems from the Landfill Directive, which aims to reduce UK reliance on landfill as a waste management option and minimise the environmental impact of landfill sites. To meet this aim it is important that waste producers find better ways to manage their waste. This document provides guidance on pre-treatments and includes detailed discussion of handling excavated soil / contaminated soil
