Safe Ways to Dispose of Asbestos

If you suspect that your home or workplace contains dangerous asbestos, do not attempt to fix the situation
on your own. It is important to call a trained professional to safely remove or contain the asbestos.
Asbestos becomes harmful when it is inhaled and therefore improperly removing or damaging asbestos-containing
materials can actually increase the risk of exposure.

Many times, the best solution is to leave the asbestos-containing materials in place and seal the material
so that the asbestos is trapped inside a hardened shell. However, other times, experts determine that
removal and disposal is the best option. Asbestos-containing materials must be treated with caution
and care during removal, transport, and disposal, so as not to increase the risk of exposure for everyone

Currently, workers and industries dispose of asbestos-containing materials following strict procedures
to safely transport the materials without endangering anyone’s health. Often workers must seal the material
before transport, and then must find facilities with adequate space, especially for large pipes and
metal structures that contain asbestos.

One asbestos disposal method rising in popularity is recycling the material into a non-hazardous silicate
glass. As landfills reach their capacity and with a limited number of designated asbestos disposal sites,
many industries are turning to recycling as their preferred option. In the process, the asbestos fibers
are heated to very high temperatures and transformed into a harmless glass product that can be used
in other materials such as tiles and bricks.
