Can I Take Residential Asbestos Waste to the Dump?
The answer to the question depends very much on the City you live in. Homeowners who are removing asbestos have to dispose of it in facilities that are approved and/or licensed to accept it. Never leave asbestos somewhere without alerting the staff first as to the contents.
It is not a good idea to remove and transport asbestos yourself. It is not a DIY job. The reason why professionals in hazardous materials abatement are required to have all kinds of training and licenses is because the handling of materials like asbestos is extremely dangerous. It is very risky for homeowners to try to remove asbestos themselves.
What is important to understand here is that hazardous materials abatement is a dangerous activity that should be handled by professionals with training, certification, experience, and proper equipment who also have specific asbestos pollution liability insurance.
