Sometimes it's unavoidable. Hazardous material can find its way into the ground, leaks from drilling machines, spills from ruptured hydraulic lines, etc. Ideally these will be cleaned up but when a spill is large enough and has contaminated/seeped into the earth, absorbents may not be able to recover them. The best and easiest option may be to dig it up and dispose of it before it spreads further into the surrounding environment. This is where spades & shovels come in. Not to mention these products are tried and tested for toughness and durability when it comes to cleaning up large amounts of granular absorbent and the common tasks on any given construction site such as moving and lifting material.
