Ward launches new asbestos drop off service


Derbyshire based metal and waste recycling specialist, Ward, has launched a new asbestos drop off service for smaller loads or one-off jobs.

Asbestos is dangerous to human health and must be disposed of safely by a licensed contractor. It is not widely accepted at household waste recycling centers and so can often be difficult to dispose.

The new service for the safe disposal of cement-bonded asbestos launched this month. It is aimed at residential and commercial customers who need a quick and reliable way to safely dispose of the hazardous material.

Donald Ward, Operations Director at Ward, said: “There are often cases where trades’ or householders working on smaller projects in renovations of older properties or home DIY-ers dismantling a garage or lean-to unexpectedly find themselves with asbestos for disposal. Due to the minimum quantity limits at many disposal sites, they struggle to find somewhere to safely dispose of it at a competitive rate.”

“Our Chesterfield and Ilkeston facilities are fully licensed for handling hazardous waste and can accept small loads less than 150kgs at a new special rate or larger loads of asbestos up to a number of tonnes at the most comparative rates in the area. We’ve launched the new service so that people can easily book in and drop off cement-based asbestos and be sure that it will be disposed of in a safe and responsible way.”

The new service enables customers to book in and drop off up to four bags or 150kgs of cement-bonded asbestos at Ward sites for an exclusive rate of £95+VAT, including all legal paperwork such as a consignment note. The team also offers free advice and support for all enquiries.
