Learn more about Asbestos Removal in East London
Due to being concealed as insulation or inside piping, people do not realise the extent of asbestos in their homes. Prolonged exposure to asbestos that has been disturbed or damaged can cause serious long-term illnesses and diseases, but if it is left untouched, the substance poses little to no threat.
Most of the East London boroughs do not offer their own asbestos collection service; they choose to use the City of London hazardous waste disposal service instead. The East London Waste Authority (ELWA) promotes the use of this service for asbestos removal as well as directing homeowners to two of their recycling centres. The Jenkins Lane RRC in Newham, along with the Gerpins Lane RRC in Havering both accept asbestos in small amounts from residents of East London. The asbestos must be tightly wrapped and double bagged, as well as damped down or wetted as per the site rules. It is best to call in advance when planning carrying out any asbestos removal yourself in order to take asbestos to any recycling centre.
