Dealing with and disposing of Asbestos
Asbestos fibres are hazardous when inhaled. They can be released into the air when asbestos products are incorrectly handled, stored or transported for disposal.
It is important to ensure that asbestos waste has been wetted and sealed in heavy-duty plastic prior to transportation to a lawful waste facility such as a licensed landfill.
