Asbestos & Contaminated Soil
Before you begin remodeling or demolishing any home or building know these facts:
The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has very specific rules regarding the handling and disposal of materials containing asbestos. DEQ also requires an asbestos survey be performed by an accredited inspector to determine the presence of asbestos in or on a structure prior to any demolition activities.
Asbestos was used widely in building materials throughout the 1900’s. Use has decreased significantly since the 1970’s but there are some materials still in production today that contain asbestos. If your home was built prior to 1990, there is a high potential that asbestos-containing materials were used in its construction.
You can’t identify asbestos simply by looking at it. You should consider hiring a professional to conduct a survey of possible asbestos-containing materials in your home. To be safe, treat all suspect materials as if they contain asbestos until you get samples analyzed. Prior to doing any remodeling or demolition work, you should confirm the presence of asbestos by having suspect materials analyzed by a laboratory.

Before you have us haul or you haul Construction or Demolition
By law we do not accept any asbestos-containing material, please do not put in our drop box:
In order for us to accept or haul any construction or demolition debris we ask that you have an Asbestos Clearance Certification from a certified abatement company stating the material is asbestos free. By law all commercial demolition debris must be certified asbestos free. The certificate is valid for one year from the date of the inspection and/or abatement. If any material in the box could be considered suspect Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM), including but not limited to; flooring, sheetrock, duct work, roofing material, plaster, popcorn ceiling, or anything else that looks like it came from a remodel or demolition, the hauler and/or disposal site may refuse to accept the material until you can provide documentation proving the load does not contain Asbestos Containing Material (ACM). If your box is picked up and undeclared suspect ACM is discovered at the transfer station, You Will Be Billed for all cleanup costs, either by the landfill, the hauler or other third party abatement specialists. Cleanups are in the thousands of dollars. For more information on asbestos or how we can help you properly dispose of asbestos please contact us at 541-336-2932 or email: email@example.com
