How do I get rid of Asbestos?
No asbestos-containing material of any kind can be brought to an OCRRA Facility (see details below on loose asbestos and asbestos pipe wrapping). OCRRA cautions homeowners against personally performing asbestos removal due to potentially adverse health impacts.
For a list of local asbestos removal service providers, please search the internet or phone book for Asbestos Abatement & Removal Services.
- Asbestos shingles and tiles may be delivered to the Camillus Landfill.
- Loose asbestos and asbestos pipe wrapping (PIPES REMOVED) may be taken to OCRRA's Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off; it must be double-bagged.
- Environmental Products and Services of Vermont has a branch in Syracuse which accepts friable asbestos (asbestos that can be made airborne) and non-friable (asbestos that is in solid particle form / not airborne) that is double-bagged. Call (315)451-6666 for more information.
