Is Asbestos Recyclable?

Click To Enlarge

The answer is yes, it is recyclable, but only in a very controlled manner and by certain recycling plants...


We have had to tread cautiously around Asbestos since the realisation of its dangers since the 1970s. Its disposal has to be planned and achieved with great care and attention, but is there an option to recycle it, instead of just disposing of it as hazardous waste?


Asbestos can only be removed by an individual who is trained to handle it. Once removed, it has to be double-wrapped in UN-approved packaging with a CDG hazard label and Asbestos code information visible. After the packaging regulations have been followed, the Asbestos can be moved onto an appropriate recycling plant.


So how is Asbestos recycled? The waste Asbestos is heated to a very high temperature using a thermal decomposition technique, which turns it into silicate glass. This material can then be turned into harmless stoneware and ceramic products which is safe enough for us to use.



Do not try to remove Asbestos on your own and it should only be done by trained professionals. Always seek advice if you suspect there to be Asbestos present.

In short, if you have an asbestos problem, can solve it. Contact us today on 0333 772 0424

What our asbestos removal customers are saying:

Straight forward and honest. Tony came out and provided us with great advice and did all to ensure that our needs were put first. Highly recommended.

Ramone -

Tony and his team removed asbestos from our warm air heating that went right through our house. They were brilliant, fast and efficient. Highly recommended. Thanks very much

Andrew - Nottingham -

We were given 36 hours' notice by our buyers' solicitor that a survey needed doing. Tony was out first thing the next morning, the survey was completed later that same day and the delay in completion was minimal but could have been so much more bothersome. Excellent service, polite, efficient and professional. Highly recommended.

Richard Eadie, Hazel Hurst School, Nottingham -

We required an urgent survey on a property we are planning to purchase. Tony was very helpful to accommodate us and the results had returned quicker than expected, so all in all a great service - many thanks.
