Hazardous Landfill

Whitemoss Landfill Facility

Helpful, approachable and compliant solutions for
hazardous waste landfill

Landfill remains a key component of the UK waste infrastructure with nearly 1 million Tonnes of
hazardous residues sent to landfill each year.


How we can help

Do you produce or manage the disposal of a hazardous solid from a thermal, treatment, or mechanical process? Are you looking for an outlet for your Hazardous bottom ash, your hazardous filter cake, or hazardous treatment residues?

There are many hazardous solid wastes that cannot be recycled or reused. For certain types of hazardous solids, landfill is the most viable option and offers a reliable and fully compliant solution.

Typical Hazardous waste materials accepted at our Whitemoss Hazardous Landfill site include:

  • Ash - primarily bottom ash and fly ash from biomass power plants
  • Shot blast
  • Asbestos - fibrous and cement bonded
  • Ceramic fibre
  • Carbon
  • Filter Cake
  • Contaminated soils
  • Demolition waste containing asbestos
  • Unused products
  • Consolidation and treatment residues

The best place to start when considering if your waste is suitable for our facility is the EWC Code of the material, which must appear as one of the 217 Hazardous EWC Codes which form our operating permit.

Please request a copy of our operating permit to see the full range of EWC Codes which we can accept or simply send the details to us via the link on this page.

All hazardous inputs need to pass a Hazardous Landfill Waste Acceptance Criteria or WAC test, but we can arrange this for you and offer guidance throughout the whole pre-acceptance process.

Offering a solid and robust internal road network, Whitemoss can accept a wide range of vehicles including 8-wheel tippers, artic tippers, and all ranges of skips and ROROs, and offers very quick vehicle turnaround times, typically 15 minutes. The site also accepts articulated flatbeds of packaged waste in pallets, drums, and IBCs.
