What Does Approved Landfill Mean?
Asbestos removal & disposal, whether from your home, workplace or commercial area, is strictly controlled by Environment Protection Authority (EPA). Commercial and industrial wastes arise from commercial, industrial or trade activities and include asbestos removal and demolition wastes.
Wastes generated from commercial or industrial sources that are potentially hazardous to humans or the environment require a higher level of control and are called prescribed industrial wastes (PIW). These wastes are regulated under the Environment Protection (Industrial Waste Resource) Regulations 2009.
A licensed Prescribed Industrial Waste (PIW) landfill is approved to accept hazardous waste products including:
- Contaminated & asbestos soil
- Asbestos materials.

Asbestos Disposal Services
When it comes to Asbestos disposal, Southstar follow correct procedures in handling and transporting asbestos. It is against the law to bury asbestos or dispose it in a non-approved landfill.
Asbestos must be disposed of in a landfill that has a specific permit to allow for correct asbestos disposal. Disposing asbestos in a non-hazardous waste landfill is compliant if the landfill contains a separate, self-contained cell. Southstar Asbestos Removals remove and dispose asbestos as we are EPA approved and WorkSafe licensed to do so.
When you engage with our services, you can expect correctly packaged and secured asbestos.
Southstar Asbestos Removals, can dispose of both asbestos and non-asbestos related matter from sites. Our trucks are all EPA approved which allow us to conduct asbestos disposal services and dispose asbestos in approved asbestos disposal sites.
