Asbestos

Found in many homes, asbestos is toxic.  It has 2 forms: friable and nonfriable.

asbestos1Friable Asbestos: materials containing friable asbestos crumble by hand pressure when dry, and may be found in old pipe insulation. It should be removed and disposed by an asbestos abatement professional only. If it has already been removed, small quantities (up to a garbage bag) may be wetted, double bagged and brought to an HHW collection. Larger quantities should be brought to Waste Management's Turnkey Landfillin Rochester NH 603-330-2134.

Nonfriable asbestos, found in such materials as roofing, siding and flooring, should be handled by a demolition contractor or brought to Waste Management's Turnkey Landfillin Rochester NH 603-330-2134.
