Dealing with asbestos?
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibre that was extensively used in construction and various industries until the late 1990s. However, it has since been recognised as a hazardous material due to its potential to release microscopic fibres into the air, causing health issues. Therefore, the removal of asbestos requires careful handling.
Can I include asbestos in my general/mixed waste skip?
No, asbestos-containing materials must be legally disposed of as hazardous waste and cannot be mixed with other waste. If materials resembling asbestos are found in your skip, we will conduct tests, and if positive, the entire load will be considered contaminated. You will then be charged for disposing of the entire contents at the asbestos disposal rate.
How do I know if I have asbestos?
If you suspect your waste materials may contain asbestos, our assistance can help isolate it, potentially avoiding charges for a contaminated skip load and ensuring environmental safety. You can arrange for a sample to be tested or our Customer Services team can arrange this for you. If asbestos is confirmed, you must engage an asbestos removal specialist and order an enclosed asbestos skip. Remember, asbestos testing is significantly cheaper than paying for a contaminated skip.
How do I package up asbestos?
Both fibrous and bonded asbestos must be double wrapped or bagged. Once appropriately wrapped, we can arrange for collection to ensure careful disposal. For any questions regarding asbestos disposal, please contact our Customer Services team at 01392 826456; they will be happy to assist you.
