Asbestos can pose a health threat when it is damaged or moved, therefore it is highly recommended that you contact an asbestos removal professional if you need to dispose of it. You can find these services under "asbestos abatement and removal" in your local phone book, and businesses and others can find out more information at the EPA website.
Mesothelioma + Asbestos Awareness Center Website contains detailed information about Asbestos exposure. Please visit maacenter.org to learn more.
SWALCO can take manageable amounts of asbestos at Household Chemical Waste (HCW) collections events, however, the materials must be wetted down and transported in a sealed container. We will not collect large, bulky asbestos debris. Please call ahead with questions.
