Disposal procedures for all asbestos material and material suspected of containing asbestos.
- Separate asbestos-containing material from other material for disposal.
- Wrap asbestos-containing products in heavy duty plastic so fibres are not released when being transported or handled. Double-wrap to ensure it is properly sealed.
- Label the package ‘CAUTION ASBESTOS’ in letters at least 50mm high.
- Inform the gate attendant of the presence of asbestos and follow instructions of where to unload it.
Loads not complying with the above procedures will be rejected at the discretion of the operator.
