Section 12: Ecological information

Section 13: Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Smaller contaminated items can be disposed of with normal mixed waste. Larger batches can be recovered and reused. The foam glass to be removed from use is classified as construction waste. It is delivered to a landfill. Before delivery to the landfill, the material must be approved in advance for placement in the landfill. Crushed foam glass mixed with soil cannot be taken to a landfill for soil.
