What is Inert Waste?

clay and soil tip in Somerset

Inert materials are unreactive, both biologically and chemically. This means that when inert waste is disposed of it takes a long time to decompose or doesn’t decompose at all.

This type of waste will not pose a threat to the environment, animals or human health and will not endanger the quality of water courses. But when there is a large amount of this type of waste, it can become an issue as it takes up a lot of space.

Commercial Recycling makes the most of inert waste by recycling it into aggregates that can be used for a wide range of purposes or alternatively inert waste materials can be used as a capping layer on landfill sites, in restoration works or in the creation of acoustic bunds.
