Asbestos Disposal Manchester
Asbestos is found in many applications, including shed and garage roofs and walls, insulation boards and panels, partitioning, drainpipes, soffits, and bath side panels.
If you've ever deconstructed a garage, shed, or other home renovation that included asbestos cement, you're undoubtedly concerned about how to get rid of it correctly.
Asbestos is a hazardous material that must be disposed of in the proper manner, and it should not simply be thrown away with other household waste.
The correct way to dispose of asbestos
First and foremost, asbestos waste must be double wrapped in heavy-duty polythene sacks, bags, or sheets, properly sealed, and labelled clearly with the contents of the package.
If possible, experts recommend transporting asbestos waste in a van or trailer to allow the vehicle to be thoroughly cleaned after each trip.
You don't need a license to remove and dispose of household asbestos cement if you follow these steps.
However, any other material containing asbestos must be removed and disposed of by a qualified business such as Rubbish Removals Manchester, who will be charged to do so.
It is illegal for builders or tradesmen to take asbestos to recycling centres in Manchester, if they are caught doing so they will be fined.
At your business or home, we'll collect asbestos waste from you, then transport it to a licensed disposal facility/transfer station location for disposal.
There are several independent waste collection businesses that can empty asbestos waste from your company or home and transport it to one of the authorised disposal transfer stations/sites.
