ASBESTOS WASTE COLLECTION

What is asbestos waste?

You may recently have discovered actual or suspected asbestos waste in your premises. These could be commercial or in the home.

It is vital for the safety of all concerned that this waste is safely removed by trained and licensed contractors. As well as being vital, it is also a legal requirement! In this article, we describe the Safeline Environmental approach to asbestos waste collection.

According to the Health & Safety Executive in their Disposal of Asbestos Waste EM9 Guidelines, asbestos waste is:

Any asbestos product or material that is ready for disposal is defined as asbestos waste. Asbestos waste also includes contaminated building materials, tools that cannot be decontaminated, personal protective equipment and damp rags used for cleaning. If in doubt, always treat waste as ‘Hazardous’ or ‘Special

What is hazardous or special asbestos waste?

In England & Wales any waste containing more than 0.1% asbestos is classed as “hazardous waste”, in Scotland this would be classified as “special waste”.

Asbestos waste could be any of 3,000+ historically used products but some common examples include

  • Building materials – asbestos cement related products, boards and panels, caulking, cladding, coatings, felts, gaskets, insulation, packing yarns, paints, partitions, roofing sheets and slates, sealants, and textured coatings (e.g., Artex), tiles and
  • Household – blankets, curtains, hairdryers, ironing boards, mattresses, textiles, white goods, and wire and cable insulation

If you are unsure whether you have asbestos waste or not, then contact us. We can complete an asbestos survey prior to the removal of the asbestos waste.
