Asbestos Skip Bins Brisbane
At Asbestos Skip Bins Brisbane we are often asked to supply bins for the safe removal of asbestos. In the past, this has not been a service we provide. As a result of ongoing requests, we have decided to partner with Multi Enterprises.
Multi Enterprises have over 30 years of experience in skip bins. They specialise in supplying skips for the transport of asbestos. Their license allows them to transport contaminated and regulated wastes also. They deliver asbestos skip bins seven days a week by arrangement in the greater Brisbane Region.
The Do’s & Don’ts when Hiring an Asbestos Skip Bin.
What you CAN put in:
- Asbestos products & materials, i.e. fibro roofing & sheeting,
- Asbestos-contaminated waste ONLY
What you CANNOT put in the Bin
NO other general/non-connected waste.
There is a particular cell for asbestos wastes at the disposal facility.
Extra materials may increase the disposal cost (which is recoverable from the Hirer).
The other stuff
Asbestos skip hire is up to 7 days hire or can be earlier if requested.
A 200um plastic liner is inclusive in the price.
The driver will double line the skip bin on delivery, allowing enough liner overhang to enclose the asbestos within the skip completely.
The Hirer must close & seal the plastic liner, using duct tape to make a robust airtight package.
Asbestos removal is a regulated waste. All skips removed from the site will have a waste tracking certificate supplied. This includes the hirer’s details, where it came from and the disposal details.
If in any doubt, please feel free to call us and we will be happy to provide help.
