Starting from the removal, transport, and up to the disposal, asbestos can be very harmful to both human and environment. It is important to prioritise everyone’s safety throughout the process of alleviating asbestos problems. To lessen the risk of asbestos in the community, proper disposal of asbestos should be practised whenever a removal work is done.
However, there are certain details that you should check when you needed a landfill to receive the asbestos wastes. Check if the site receiving your asbestos is authorised by the EPA to operate. If your preferred landfill is licenced by the EPA, you should call the facility to know more on the type of asbestos being accepted by the site, and if there are any rules covering the delivery of the asbestos waste.
In Victoria, there are asbestos landfills authorised by the Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) to accept these asbestos wastes. To provide you further details about asbestos disposal areas in Victoria, here’s an infographic by AWARE, the leading asbestos removal company in Melbourne.
