Asbestos Waste Collection – Frequently Asked Questions

Below we’ve outlined some commonly asked questions about Asbestos Waste Collection. Still got a question, contact us and request a call back from one of our asbestos experts.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral, known for its heat resistance, strength, and insulating properties, which was widely used in construction materials in the UK until 1999.

Asbestos waste includes materials or debris containing asbestos fibres that have been used in buildings for insulation, flooring, and roofing. It is hazardous because inhaling asbestos fibres can lead to serious health issues, including lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. Proper handling and disposal are critical to prevent any health risks.

If you suspect that you have found asbestos in your property, do not disturb it.

Disturbing asbestos-containing materials can release fibres into the air.

Contact us and we can assess the situation and safely handle the removal and disposal of the asbestos.

    Asbestos waste must be removed and handled by trained and licensed professionals.

    The waste is carefully wetted down and sealed in special double-lined bags or wrapped in plastic to prevent any fibres from escaping. It is then transported in covered, secure vehicles to a licensed hazardous waste disposal site where it is safely disposed of.

      Yes, if the asbestos removal involves notifiable work, which typically includes work with asbestos insulation, asbestos coating, or asbestos insulating board, the licensed asbestos contractor must notify the relevant enforcing authority 14 days before work commences.

      The cost of asbestos removal and disposal varies depending on the amount of asbestos, its condition, and the complexity of the removal process.

      Typically, you can expect to pay from a few hundred to several thousand pounds. It’s best to get a detailed quote from a licensed removal service to understand the costs involved.

      Identifying asbestos waste typically requires a professional assessment, as asbestos isn’t always easy to identify by appearance alone.

      Common materials containing asbestos include pipe insulation, ceiling tiles, and floor tiles. If your property was built before 2000, it might contain asbestos materials, and it is advisable to hire a certified asbestos surveyor for proper identification.

      Contact us if you need assistance with this identification.

        To find an asbestos waste collection service in your area, you can search online for “asbestos waste collection near me” or contact your local council for recommendations on licensed professionals.

        Specialist Remediation Solutions offers a comprehensive asbestos removal and disposal service across the UK.

        In the UK, the disposal of asbestos waste is regulated by the Environment Agency in England, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) in Scotland, and the Natural Resources Wales (NRW) in Wales. 

        It is strongly recommended that you do not attempt to remove asbestos waste yourself. Handling asbestos requires specific training, equipment, and legal compliance to ensure it is done safely. Always hire a professional with the appropriate licensing and experience.

          When choosing a service for asbestos waste collection and disposal, ensure that the company is fully licensed and complies with all HSE regulations.

          Look for services that offer a comprehensive approach, including initial surveys, risk assessment, safe removal, transport, and disposal.

          Reviews and testimonials can also provide insight into the reliability and quality of the service.

            We had SRS attend a recent job where we had discovered what appeared to be asbestos.They were prompt to attend and having established that is was indeed asbestos, arranged a very swift removal at a cost which was not at all unreasonable.
