Disposal of Asbestos Materials

Never burn any asbestos-containing waste material.

Non-asbestos-containing demolition debris and debris which contains only non-regulated roofing or flooring may be disposed of at a DHEC-approved disposal site for cellulosic or inert waste. Waste consolidation activities involving grinding, cutting, or compacting of non-friable asbestos-containing materials will subject these materials to more stringent State and Federal asbestos disposal regulations.

Regulated asbestos waste must be handled by properly licensed asbestos abatement personnel and disposed of at a landfill permitted to accept regulated asbestos waste. A list of approved landfills may be obtained from the Asbestos Section.
