How Do I Dispose of Asbestos?

Answer

To dispose of asbestos, clear up everyone from the area and wear a respirator and full body protective clothing. Lay down a plastic sheet and damp down the asbestos product. Put it into a larger heavy duty bag, seal it and label it as asbestos. Ensure that you hoover the plastic sheet with a vacuum cleaner, remove clothing then put straight in the wash and take it to a licensed landfill tip.
