Redevelopment sites throughout the U.S. are confronted by how to manage surplus marginally-to-moderately contaminated soil. The default practice of landfilling surplus soil is neither an efficient nor viable long-term option, economically or environmentally. Learn how an influential model based in the United Kingdom is addressing the issue of limited landfill space and the market for soil reuse at redevelopment sites, and its relevance to U.S. governments and the private marketplace.
