WHAT ABOUT HAZARDOUS WASTE?
Hazardous waste such as asbestos can not be mixed with other types of waste. All skip bins hired for asbestos removal must be lined with double PVC orange or black builder’s plastic that can be purchased from any hardware store (200 micron or greater). The bin is to be lined with enough over hang to completely enclose the asbestos within the confines of the plastic & then sealed with industry tape for safe transport to an asbestos approved waste facility. The skip bin suppliers will always check to see if this has been done correctly before transport.
Once asbestos has been collected, it is carefully taken to a specialised facility to safely dispose of the material.
