Residential & Commercial Asbestos Contaminated Soil & Remediation Services

Asbestos building waste, particles and debris can be found in many contaminated ground soils and fill across Sydney.
Call Asbestex today if you have any issues relating to asbestos contaminated soil or excavated fill.

Asbestos contaminated sites are very common in and around Sydney. They can be a result of previous deteriorating structures before removal, foreign contaminated fill being brought in during a construction period or illegally dumped. Illegal dumping affects communities. It affects parks and reserves, pollutes land and water and has a significant effect on human health. Illegal landfilling is a form of illegal dumping where waste is used as a ‘fill’ with the consent of the owner of the land without the necessary licensing approvals.

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.

If You've Found Evidence of Asbestos in Your Soil

While it's not possible to recognize soil contaminated with asbestos fibres, property owners may find evidence asbestos-contaminated building materials or sheeting buried in the ground. If you come across a suspicious material, it's important to call Asbestex immediately. To ensure that everyone on or near the property stays safe prior to an asbestos assessment, do not remove any play or work equipment from the contaminated area until we have results of what the contaminated material consists of and its severity.
