Additional risk of asbestos-contaminated soil exists on land where an older building was demolished. It’s possible that when these buildings were taken down, the asbestos containing materials weren’t disposed of properly. These materials may have been buried intact, broken up and mixed with other demolition wastes, or even potentially imported to site as a recycled aggregate or ground fill material.
Recognised As Sydney’s Leader in Asbestos Related Solutions
Because asbestos fibres do not migrate through soil, it’s still common to find notable levels of asbestos contamination within the topsoil or fill material used in these areas. Even if you’re not planning a home garden, soil contaminated with asbestos can still release particles into the air that flows through your home or building and poses an extra risk when disturbed by any digging.

Can I Remove Hazardous Waste Myself?
There are multiple legal requirements surrounding the transportation and disposal of asbestos-contaminated soil. If you believe your soil may be contaminated with asbestos, it's best to call a professional.

The Asbestex Asbestos Soil Remediation Process
Depending on the level of contamination, soil removal may be done by hand or using machines for excavation. Our technicians will encapsulate the area with the use of polyethylene sheeting to ensure no fibres escape the remediation area. As required by law, Asbestex is fully licensed and insured to perform asbestos-contaminated soil removal. Our team undergoes on-going training to ensure that the techniques used to remediate or remove your soil are completely safe, as well as efficient and cost-effective.
"...After testing, we'll work with you to discuss removal work that fits your budget and schedule. Once isolated, contaminated soil will be treated for transport and carefully transferred to an approved EPA licensed landfill...
During the initial stages of our granny flat build we uncovered what seemed to be roof sheeting. The guys from a Asbestex came in and immediately identified the sheets to contain asbestos. After removing the sheets and a small portion of the surrounding soil we were given the all clear to continue to construction.
