Dealing with asbestos?

We provide a comprehensive asbestos service, including identification, collection, and disposal at our own site in Devon. We can offer a range of enclosed skips with lockable lids, so you can store asbestos safely until the job is completed.

We’re unable to accept asbestos mixed with other waste unless it’s specifically booked in an asbestos skip. If waste materials in your skip look like asbestos, we’ll test them and make the necessary adjustments.

Asbestos can often be mixed with other materials, so it’s difficult to know if it’s there. Any material containing asbestos needs to be legally disposed of as hazardous waste. Both fibrous and bonded asbestos must be double wrapped/bagged. Our Customer Services team can arrange for it to be collected once it has been appropriately wrapped.

Asbestos can be found in:

Man made slates

Corrugated roofing sheets & cladding

Textured decorative coating

Guttering, downpipes & other drainage goods

Floor tiles

Insulation board

Pipe lagging

Ceiling tiles

Connecting with local communities and educating with our expert knowledge is a key practice at Coastal to secure a more sustainable future for all. As much as 80% of the things that go into general waste bins could be recycled. That waste is a resource in the wrong place but together we can get it right.
