The Soil Lab

Accurate soil testing with a fast turnaround guaranteed

With The Soil Lab from Fletchers Waste Management, you can easily classify your soil yourself with our testing kits, or we can visit your site to take samples for you. Our soil testing kits and service will ensure you are compliant with your legal obligations to classify and assess excavated waste correctly, as well as save you money in the long run.

When is soil testing needed?

Building and construction sites are required to determine the quality and condition of the soil as well as whether there’s a possibility of contamination. Soil cannot leave the construction site and be taken to landfill unless the correct disposal method has been identified based on the testing of the soil. 

Other examples include the need to comply with topsoil standards, and to test water contents when planning for flood control, agriculture, drought prediction and the prevention of erosion.
