Contaminated land may contain asbestos which needs specialised asbestos removal services.

More and more organisations, and most importantly a variety of government departments have acted to develop a widespread understanding of the detrimental impacts of contaminated land. This has also led to the development of policies and procedures for restoring contaminated land. Increasingly, you will find layers of legislation covering the use and remediation of contaminated land.
