Safe Asbestos Disposal
Safely Disposing Asbestos In Council Approved Locations
The team at At Pro Asbestos Removal Sydney follow established safety disposal guidelines to ensure safe, efficient, and proper waste disposal. Our asbestos specialists are licensed and qualified in disposal at Council-approved disposal sites. After we dispose of the material you can be confident that the asbestos matrices and other particles will be disposed-of at appropriate sites, where they can do no harm.
What’s the Proper Way to Dispose of Asbestos?
Before the actual disposal process can be performed, it needs to be established that there are two primary types of asbestos:
Stabilized Asbestos – is any waste containing bonded or solid matrix-formed like cement sheeting, which is the most common culprit of asbestos exposure in Australia.
Asbestos Fiber & Dust Waste – is any waste that contains dust or fibers.
Examples of locations that can contain harmful materials include:
- Roofing Systems
- Wall and Fence Linings
- Acoustic insulation
- Thermal insulation
- Dust found in ventilation collection systems
If you believe your building contains asbestos it possible you could be exposed to a potential health risk and you should seek the advice of a professional.
The actual disposal process that we follow is leading industry standards; and safe. We dispose of asbestos in small quantities, quantities that can be unloaded by hand. Our preservation and disposal process is straightforward and certified:
- Each sheet of Asbestos is doused with water
- The Asbestos waste is wrapped in builder’s plastic with a minimum density of 200 microns
- The package is completely sealed using duct tape or builder’s tape and is reasonably wrapped for unloading
- The waste is carefully transported to an appropriate, New South Wales Council-approved disposal site, where it’s unloaded by hand.
- If the waste is Asbestos fiber and dust, it’s wrapped in polyethylene with a thickness of at least 0.2 millimeters. Each bag is wire-tied and is used to carry no more than 25 kilograms of waste.
- The bags are labeled with “CAUTION ASBESTOS,” a measure that complies with Australian Standard AS 1319; in other words, it’s a working safety sign for the environment.
