Asbestos picks up services are conducted on a daily basis all over Melbourne including Altona North, Essendon, Greensborough, Lalor and Coburg which are some of our frequent hotspot locations.
Removed asbestos must be safely and correctly prepared for prior to disposal. At Southstar, we use proper safe handling methods for all pickup services. This includes using correct bagging and wrapping techniques (double bagging and not overloading bags) for removed asbestos and ensuring the material is completely concealed and free from the risk of becoming airborne.
It’s ok if your removed asbestos has not been correctly bagged prior to our asbestos pick up. We will always ensure the asbestos material is correctly packaged, labeled and cleared off from the site.
It is against the law to bury asbestos or disposed of the material in a not approved landfill or area.
All asbestos material must be disposed of in a landfill that has a specific permit to allow for the disposal of asbestos. Asbestos can only be disposed of in a non-hazardous waste landfill if they landfill contains a separate, self-contained cell.
While you may be able to dispose your own asbestos waste at an approved landfill site, provided that your asbestos is correctly packaged, secure during appropriate transportation and unloaded safely, it can often be more expensive and time-consuming as a DIY.
Our trucks are all EPA approved which allow us to conduct asbestos pick up services and be able to dispose of asbestos material from sites into approved landfills.
Organise an Asbestos Pick Up
As asbestos pick up services do not require actual removal and therefore require a timely notification to WorkSafe, you can organise a pick up with us any day and any time. Speak to us today about any asbestos material you need picked up and disposed of.
