(1) Colliery waste on a regraded Scottish tip was classified as `burnt' and `unburnt', and the latter subdivided into `pre-acid' or `acid' on the basis of pH and extractable sulphate levels. (2) `Burnt' material contained more extractable AI than `unburnt' material, but both `burnt' and `unburnt' material varied considerably in chemical properties. (3) The nutrient and trace metal contents of Chamaenerion angustifolium growing on the various areas reflected the acetic extractable levels in the waste.
