For More Information:


Asbestos waste - Regulated under the Clean Air Act and NESHAP, there are two types of asbestos waste, non-friable and regulated asbestos containing material (RACM). RACM includes friable asbestos, which can be crumbled, pulverized or reduced to a powder by hand pressure when dry and is the most dangerous form. Resilient floor tile, roof felts, asphalt tiles, asphalts, mastics, and transite roofing shingles and siding are considered non‐friable forms of asbestos, unless they are or will be damaged during demolition or renovation activities. Non‐friable asbestos cannot easily be pulverized or reduced to a powder. Non‐friable asbestos that is damaged to the extent that it can be crumbled or reduced to a powder by hand pressure must be handled and packaged as RACM.
