Asbestos Disposal

Asbestos Disposal By Licensed UK Specialists

Asbestos used to be an affordable, durable, and fire-resistant building material. Today, we know that exposure to asbestos fibres carries devastating health effects. If you have identified asbestos materials in your home or building, it is important to understand the strict regulations in place and not attempt to remove or dispose of it yourself. Careful asbestos removal and disposal per UK HSE and Environment Agency guidelines is critical

What Is Asbestos and Why Does It Need Special Disposal?

Asbestos refers to six naturally occurring silicate minerals used commonly in various construction materials in the past. When asbestos fibres become airborne, they can cause serious health issues like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.

At TLC Environmental, our technicians have two decades of specialised experience strictly following official protocols for protective equipment, fibre containment, leakproof packaging, certified transport vehicles, and authorised waste sites – all to prevent environmental and personal asbestos exposure. We coordinate everything from granting notifications, to waste transfer certificates, to disposal facility bookings.

Careful and Compliant Asbestos Disposal at Approved Sites in the UK

The asbestos removal process begins with an initial survey to identify all asbestos materials needing removal. We will then give you a quote for complete removal and disposal services.

Strict procedures are followed during removal, clean-up and loading for transportation to prevent the release of asbestos fibres into surrounding areas. Waste is promptly sealed and labelled as designated asbestos waste.

Post-removal, we properly package asbestos waste for leakproof transport to approved hazardous waste landfills. Consignment notes track the materials so nothing gets mishandled. We adhere to HSE, DOT and EA regulations through final disposal, relieving you of the hassles and risks.
