Asbestos fibers are known as a human carcinogen. Lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis have been proven to result from asbestos exposure.
Examples of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) include:
Resilient floor covering
Sprayed on fire proofing
Tiled sound insulation materials
Transite© rigid exterior siding and boards
Category I Non-Friable material is pliable (not brittle), breaks by tearing rather than fracturing and does not easily release asbestos fibers upon breaking.
Category II Non-Friable material cannot be crumbled to powder by hand pressure, may not be pliable and may release asbestos fiber upon breaking.
Friable material can be crumbled to a powder by hand pressure, has little structural strength and contains asbestos fibers that are readily released upon breaking.
How can I dispose of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM)? Facility owners and/or operators involved in demolition and renovation activities are required to inspect the affected facility before attempting to remove any asbestos, file proper notification and handle/dispose of asbestos properly.
Commercial customers are required to provide test data and a manifest to the scale operator when bringing materials to the landfill.
How should I transport Asbestos Containing Material (ACM)? Category I Non-Friable material may be in bulk covered containers or contained with sheet plastic/tarps to minimize the risk of materials becoming airborne.
Category II Non-Friable material may be transported in bulk covered containers, but must be wetted as needed to control dust and prevent spilling.
Friable Asbestos must be moistened and bagged prior to transport.
Dump Trailers of asbestos containing material will be required to unload in the landfill.
