As recently as the 1980s chemicals used by industry were simply tipped down drains and poured onto soil to evaporate. Buildings that contained asbestos weren’t always demolished and disposed of properly and asbestos-contaminated soil was used as a top soil or fill material.

There was a lack of awareness about the long term impacts all these activities could have and laws were not in place to prevent them from happening. The result is that Australia has an estimated 160,000 contaminated sites.

Soil testing and laboratory analysis is required to identify if there are any contaminants on your property that may be a risk to you or the environment.
