In the event that any AIB type of asbestos is identified or if we are suspicious that any asbestos material may be AIB within any load present at our recycling facility, an asbestos licensed contractor will have to be brought in to safely deal with such, where in such event the total cost, which could run into many thousands of pounds will be the responsibility of the customer.
Similarly, if any load collected from your property/site is taken directly to DFI or any other waste outlet and found to include/contain any hazardous waste, asbestos waste and/or suspected asbestos waste, such outlet will need to bring in a licensed asbestos contractor to check and/or safely deal with such, where in such event the total cost levied by DFI or any other outlet, which could run into many thousands of pounds will be the responsibility of the customer.
