UK Asbestos Disposal Made Safe With New Collection and Disposal Product

The Asbestoclear™ products consist of two different disposal packs (mini and maxi bags) each contain working instructions, Personal & Respiratory Protective Equipment and asbestos disposal sacks. Once the asbestos has been safely removed and bagged up, a dedicated telephone number should be called or builders can go online to their website www.asbestoclear.co.uk where the low cost collection of the completed packs can be conveniently arranged.

The Asbestoclear solution was developed in answer to recent legislation which closed the door to asbestos at 95% of the UK landfill sites. Since the introduction of the legislation, there has been a significant increase in fly-tipping which poses a risk to the public.

Paul Woodhead, Managing Director, comments: “There are limited choices available now to the general builders and tradesman when it comes to disposing of UK asbestos cement products. New laws mean it is often not possible to take the asbestos to disposal sites. Some builders do not know what to do with it legally. This can result in additional costs not quoted for in the original works.”

Paul continues: “In a situation where tradesmen have a small amount of asbestos cement to remove and dispose of, they run the risk of removing it without instruction and safety equipment or they have to invest in using a licensed asbestos contractor. Asbestoclear reduces the costs for the building contractor and eliminates the need to hire skips, or at worst, the temptation to fly-tip.”

Asbestoclear™ will be sold through UK builders merchants as well as online and consist of two different sized disposal packs (mini and maxi bags) each containing working instructions, a short guide to asbestos in the home, a high grade disposable hooded coverall, disposable fibre filter mask, working gloves, disposal sacks and polycoth tape. The packs will retail at £25 for the mini and £55 for the maxi bags. Once the asbestos has been safely removed a dedicated telephone number should be called where the collection of the completed packs can be arranged.
