We are licenced to dispose of both Fibrous and Bonded Asbestos!
Asbestos Asbestos was widely used as a building material in the UK between the 1950s and the mid-1980s. It was also used in night storage heaters. Any building built before 2000 can contain asbestos. Asbestos materials in good condition are safe unless they are damaged and asbestos fibres become airborne. When asbestos fibres are inhaled they can cause serious diseases, which are responsible for around 4,500 deaths a year. Asbestos is regarded as the greatest single cause of work-related deaths in the UK. For more information about asbestos visit The Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
Safety Advice Use gloves, cover exposed skin by wearing disposable overalls and wear suitable respiratory protection. For advice see the HSA website. Do not break, drill, scrub or saw the asbestos. Large sheets should not be broken up. Damp down the working area with water to limit airborne particles and remaining fibres should be cleared up with a damp cloth, which, along with your safety clothing (known as personal protective clothing/PPE), should be included with the wrapped asbestos for disposal. All asbestos must be securely wrapped or bagged and must be sealed. We will only accept material that is completely contained. Please double bag or double wrap all asbestos or Asbestos Containing Material (ACM’s), alternatively industrial grade heavy duty plastic may be used. There must be no holes, rips or tears in the containment or it will be refused. Heavy duty rubble sacks or plastic sheeting can be purchased from DIY stores and Builder’s Merchants.
Site staff are unable to assist with the unloading of asbestos under any circumstances due to its hazardous nature.
