All removed asbestos material must be disposed of in specially sanctioned land fills. Land filling is the environmentally preferred method of asbestos disposal because asbestos fibers are immobilized by soil. It is also the most cost effective method of disposal. Although this generally means the removal, transportation, and off-site land filling of materials, there are certain instances where asbestos was used as a fill material and the sites are closed by covering the material in place.
The disposal process is stringently monitored in order to make sure the process is made as safe as possible for all parties involved as well as the area in which the land fill is located.
If asbestos disposal is not done properly and safely, then there exists a significant risk of exposure, which can later lead to many deadly diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
