Our asbestos removal services at U.S. Waste Industries are backed by over 150 years of combined experience in the identification, removal, and disposal of hazardous waste. Asbestos can be found in floor tiles, ceiling texture tiles, insulation, and fireproofing materials of even modern buildings. Asbestos contaminated vermiculite insulation was used as recently as 1990. While some uses of asbestos have been banned by the EPA, asbestos containing materials are still used in some industrial applications.
If the presence of asbestos is suspected, customers should contact us before any renovation or demolition. Samples can be taken to confirm the presence of asbestos. Depending on the material and whether it is friable (likely to be inhaled) a remediation solution can be developed based on customer needs. Small amounts of asbestos may be encapsulated to prevent the fibers from entering the air. Encapsulation is fully sanctioned by the EPA and may be the most cost effective solution, depending on the application.
If it is determined that the asbestos must be removed, all demolition is completed by trained experts and the asbestos is disposed of in accordance with all federal, state, and local regulations. Final documentation is provided for customer records as needed. For more information about our asbestos removal capability, see the table below, or contact us directly.
