Commercial Asbestos Disposal Information from CVE


One of the most common questions that people wonder about asbestos removal is what happens to it after it is disposed of. Businesses that are looking to get rid of the toxic material are encouraged to prepare it for disposal. By the end of the asbestos removal process, companies may be left with anything from asbestos waste, asbestos insulation, asbestos pipes, or contaminated hot water tanks.

To Dispose of Asbestos Waste

Double-bag in 0.15 mm – 6 mm thick garbage bags and label accordingly.

To Dispose of Asbestos Insulation

Wet the insulated material then, as with the waste, double-bagin 0.15 mm – 6 mm thick garbage bags and label accordingly.

To Dispose of Asbestos Pipe

Wrap any broken pipe ends in plastic and double bag in any kind of bag and label accordingly.

To Dispose of Hot Water Tanks

Double seal or double wrap the hot water tanks with a durable plastic.

At CVE our fully licensed contractors have over 30 years of experience under their belts. Once you have gathered all of your lethal material, drop off your material at your local landfill. When recycling plant workers find the asbestos material, they can often recycle it to make a harmless silicon glass. Prior to dropping off the waste, commercial employers should contact the landfill and inform them of when the disposal will arrive, how big it will be, whether the material is friable, and who will be bringing it over.
