Our safe asbestos collection service allows you to concentrate on completing your project.

Once the asbestos has been collected, we will dispose of your asbestos in accordance with the WorkSafe guidelines, following regulations and ensuring it is done so within the required 24 hour time frame.

Asbestos Disposal

When asbestos is removed from a building or structure, it is imperative that the asbestos disposal is done correctly and in accordance with the industry safety regulations. Incorrect asbestos disposal can have devastating consequences.

Once asbestos has been removed safely from a structure, the asbestos is double-bagged in line with the current guidelines and taken securely to the local landfill. It is important that asbestos removal is completed quickly and efficiently.

As with any PRO Environmental Services work, when we complete your asbestos disposal, we put safety and environmental guidelines at the forefront of everything we do.

Find out more about asbestos disposal by contacting the PRO Environmental Services team today.

Asbestos Management

An asbestos management plan is a document that logs and details how asbestos will be managed in a property and what will be done to ensure employees, customers, and other site visitors are kept safe from asbestos exposure.

The plan must be clear and concise and will include the amount of asbestos found and its location in the building. An asbestos management plan will also document the scheduled works planned to remove and dispose of the asbestos, or to contain it safely. The property owner or building manager is usually responsible for this plan.

For more information on all the asbestos services we provide – testing, removal, collection, disposal – contact PRO Environmental Services today.

What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral. These fibres are very strong and are highly resistant to heat, fire, chemicals and wear.

For decades, asbestos was an extremely popular building material. It is fire resistant and a great insulator and was used throughout New Zealand in new homes and businesses. 

It can be added to cloth, plastic, paper, cement and other materials to increase their strength, but when asbestos dust is inhaled or ingested by humans, it can lead to various dangerous lung conditions like mesotheliomaasbestosis, and lung cancer, this is why now it is considered as a serious health and safety hazard.

How long does asbestos removal take?

We do our best to work quickly, safely, and effectively to ensure you can get back to work as soon as possible, without putting your teams or customers at risk. Each project is unique and brought carefully through our process.

To provide you with a rough reference we can say that Residential Asbestos Removal can take around 1-5 days, depending on the scope of work. Commercial Asbestos Removal can lead from 1 day to several months, also depending on what it is involved and the specific project needs.

If you have discovered asbestos in your commercial, residential, or industrial property, PRO Environmental Services can help you either manage it or remove it completely with encapsulation and remedial services.

Why is asbestos dangerous for my health?

Breathing in airborne asbestos fibres can be a serious health risk; the fibres lodge themselves in the lungs and may cause harmful diseases including asbestosis, pleural thickening, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Most asbestos-related symptoms can take up to 20 years to appear and can increase when exposure is more frequent and occurs over long periods of time, and when people inhale more fibres.
