    Collecting Hazardous Waste

    The combining of various types of dangerous waste, such as asbestos with non hazardous material is prohibited.

    The act of disposing hazardous waste with non-hazardous waste at the same landfill site was barred in July, 2004. The Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) came into force on 16 July 2005, which requires waste producers to certify their waste is compliant.

    Asbestos Fibres

    What is Asbestos?

    Primarily used as a building component during the last century, asbestos is a fibrous mineral which is now known to be extremely dangerous to health.

    Due to its natural strength, as well as heat resistant capabilities, it understandably made for a suitable building material if it were not so bad for one’s health.

    Composed of several minerals, asbestos belongs to the serpentine and amphibole groups of rock minerals.

    Whilst different varieties of asbestos have varying degrees of danger, all asbestos is considered dangerous to health.

    Anyone in contact with asbestos fibres is at serious risk of developing countless forms of cancer.

    Why Is Asbestos Hazardous?

    Asbestos becomes toxic when the fibres are damaged or disturbed, and are set free into the atmosphere.

    If those fibres are inhaled, it can lead to a number of diseases, of which most are difficult to treat and can become fatal.

    These include:

    • lung cancer
    • ovarian cancer
    • malignant mesothelioma
    • laryngeal cancer
    • asbestosis
    • pleural thickening

    Many respected health agencies classify every kind of asbestos as being carcinogenic.

    Some of these examinations attempted to classify toxicity levels in asbestos, and concluded that Chrysolite, the serpentine asbestos category, is by far the worst in terms of danger to health.

    Types of Asbestos

    There are six varieties of asbestos, which come under either the amphibole or serpentine mineral groups, which are:

    • Chrysotile (White Asbestos)
    • Amosite (Brown Asbestos)
    • Anthophyllite
    • Crocidolite (Blue Asbestos)
    • Actinolite
    • Tremolite

    Chrysolite is the only type to come under the serpentine group, which incidentally is the most lethal.

    Its form is commonly formed of curly fibres and sheet crystals.

    The remaining five come under the Amphibole group which have different fibres, repeatedly described as needle-shaped.

    Although not as lethal as serpentine-based asbestos, they are still regarded as being highly dangerous.
